John Travolta (right) rides his second wave as Get Shorty, a mild comedy in which he is very fine, saunters in at the top of the London chart. (If you're sick of him, tough: he's back on 12 April in John Woo's outrageously stupid thriller Broken Arrow.) Nixon can hardly compete, coming in behind the three-week-old Trainspotting, which is still chugging away like a good 'un. (All figures denote weekend box-office only.)
