BOX OFFICE

TOO ‘LITTLE

Sony’s adorable talking mouse had a date with the carving knife last weekend, as Stuart Little 2 lost the box office race by a whisker. The much-squeaked-about $100 million-plus sequel opened almost $10 million below some predictions, making it the latest in a recent series of kid flicks that proved not quite ready to sit at the big people’s table. Harrison Ford’s K-19 was torpedoed, his worst opening since 1995’s Sabrina. The road will get bumpier for Road to Perdition with the arrival of Austin Powers in Goldmember, followed a week later by Signs.
