Pants on Fire

This week’s rental charts

Posted on

How hot was Liar Liar in its first week on video? The average store sold 51 copies of Jim Carrey’s box office smash (at $22.98 per tape that’s an $8.9 million gross) and posted an eye-bugging 92 rentals (No. 2 Volcano had a mere 35). Further down the rental chart, theatrical dawdlers aimed at African-American audiences continue to rent strongly, given that the average store carries relatively few copies: New-to-tape B.A.P.S (No. 10) had a higher rental-per-copy figure than even Liar Liar.
