Chart supplied by Screen International

The full title of America's highest new entry is (deep breath) Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. It's a tardy spoof of black cinema with yet more members of the ubiquitous Wayans clan. Also new in the US: John Schlesinger's provocative Eye for an Eye, with Sally Field hunting Kiefer Sutherland, the psychopath who killed her daughter. Her time would be better spent hunting the fools who helped Showgirls (above) into the UK top 10.
