Eddie Murphy's Daddy Day Care was bumped to the third spot with $18 million, while X2 fell to fourth place. The comic book sequel has grossed about $192 million since it opened four weeks ago.
The Warner Bros. comedy, The In-Laws, debuted in fifth with $9.1 million.
Down with Love, the off-beat romantic comedy starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor, was sixth in its third week of release with $5.1 million.
While the behind-the-scenes tumult raged, Disney's The Lizzie McGuire Movie picked up another $4 million. It's earned $37.3 million to date.

Another Disney flick, Holes, held fast in eighth place with $3 million. That film, based on an award-winning book, has grossed $60 million in six weeks.
Two Sony films rounded out the top ten. Identity was ninth with $2.6 million, and Anger Management placed tenth with $2.4 million.
