Box - Office CHART

Topping the US chart: Billy Madison, nicknamed Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest by US critics. Like Jim Carrey's Dumb and Dumber (still riding high in fifth place), it's another comedy celebrating the cult of stupidity, and stars Adam Sandler. Paul Newman has just been Oscar-nominated for his impressive performance as an irresponsible small-town loser in Nobody's Fool (above).
