A bleak August sputters to a close, and an abstinent man shall lead the way.  The 40 Year Old Virgin created only a minor shrinking sensation in its second week, keeping the expensive and long-delayed Terry Gilliam film The Brothers Grimm to a not-entirely-fantastical runner-up position.  

Damon and Ledger’s enchanted antics were better met than the underground horrors of The Cave, which collapsed in sixth place behind the enduring marital intrusions of Wedding Crashers.  Despite being filled with pretty faces, the new aspiring actor flick Undiscovered is a top 10 wannabe, feeling the curse of a poor title selection and left appropriately disregarded with a per-screen average lower than Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. 


Next weekend’s just-before-back-to-school holiday brings more follicle-challenged action in Transporter 2, the Ralph Fiennes thriller The Constant Gardener, the sci-fi time-travel error A Sound of Thunder, and the Nick Cannon cop comedy Underclassman.
