BOX OFFICE

BUMPER CROP

Signs, M. Night Shyamalan’s faith-driven frightener, scored the second-best August opening ever–and the best of Mel Gibson’s career–while Dana Carvey made himself invisible to critical brickbats, guiding The Master of Disguise to No. 3. But Steven Soderbergh’s Full Frontal failed to crack $1 million–the weakest opening for any Julia Roberts film since Woody Allen’s 1996 Everyone Says I Love You. Elsewhere, Goldmember dropped a naughty 57 percent and Stuart Little 2 looks like the mouse that bored.
