Judd Jives, Bette Bombs

Poorly reviewed debut movies, bad weather in the East and the Super Bowl dampened the box office this weekend. Ashley Judd in the new thriller “Eye of the Beholder” led the lackluster race. “Isn’t It Great,” Bette Midler’s limp new biopic about sensational ’60s pop author Jacqueline Susann, failed to penetrate the Top 10. The estimated weekend tally:

1. “Eye of the Beholder,” $6.2 million.
2. (tie) “Next Friday,” $6 million.
2. (tie) “The Hurricane,” $6 million.
4. “Stuart Little,” $4.8 million.
5. “The Green Mile,” $4.1 million.
6. “Down to You,” $4 million.
7. “Galaxy Quest,” $3.5 million.
8. “Girl, Interrupted,” $3.3 million.
9. “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” $2.8 million.
10. “Toy Story 2,” $2.4 million.
