, but Jack Black
's new comedy Orange County
debuted in third place at the weekend box office with a stronger-than-expected $15.1 million. Rings
held on to the top spot for the fourth-consecutive weekend with $16.2 million. Its total stands at $228.3 million. Oscar hopeful A Beautiful Mind
was sitting pretty in second place with $15.8 million. Ocean's Eleven
