'ALIVE' STILL KICKING

Posted on

It’s a Hog-eat-Dog world on the charts this week: Bill Murray scores the double whammy everyone expected in theaters last spring, as Groundhog Day enters the top 10 in its second week of release, leapfrogging over Murray’s own Mad Dog & Glory-which, in a reversal of the movies’ box office openings, actually debuted a week before Day on video. Speaking of eating, the high debut of the theatrically disappointing Alive demonstrates once again that video may well be the medium of choice for the curious consumer.
