DE NIRO: ANALYSIS PAYS

“Analyze This” nabbed the No. 1 spot at the box office for the second week running. The Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal comedy took in an estimated $15.7 million and looks to be heading for a $90-$100 million gross, say industry analysts. A gaggle of teen flicks made up the rest of the box office: “The Rage: Carrie 2” brought in $7.4 million; “Cruel Intentions,” $7 million; “The Corruptor,” $5.9 million; “Baby Geniuses,” $5.8 million. That last figure came as something of a shock, because the movie got the worst reviews of any release this year. Still, it beat out the Michelle Pfeiffer movie “The Deep End of the Ocean” (based on a book that was an Oprah pick), which made $5.6 million.
