Tim Burton's family fable Big Fish duked it out with Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for top box office honors over the weekend. According to early estimates Fish expanding to wide release may have hooked the No. 1 spot with $14.5 million, although rival studios accuse Columbia of spinning a tall tale with that figure. New Line says LOTR remains the champ with $14.1 million to Fish's $13.7 million. (Final numbers are due later today, at which point we'll find out who's lying.) Elsewhere, January rejects My Baby's Daddy and Chasing Liberty parlayed their atrocious reviews into equally atrocious sixth- and seventh-place rankings.
