Critics dubbed it a dog, but Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed still managed to collar the top spot at the box office. The not-so anticipated sequel grossed $30.8 million $25 million short of the first film's debut in 2002. Tom Hanks' star power helped give writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen their best opening ever with The Ladykillers, which snagged second place with $13 million. The Passion of the Christ slipped to No. 3 with $12.5 million ($315 million to date), followed by last week's top flick, Dawn of the Dead (No. 4 with $10.4 million), and Ben Affleck's new romantic comedy, Jersey Girl (No. 5 with $8.3 million). It's worth noting that Girl grossed more in its opening weekend than Gigli did during its entire theatrical run. It's also worth noting that Gigli was at a distinct disadvantage being the worst movie in cinematic history.
