In times of crisis, Americans tend to turn to good old fashioned escapism. That might explain why "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" has taken the top spot at the box office for the second week in a row, beating out such competitors as the horror flick Quarantine and the new film featuring Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio, Body of Lies. Movie tickets aren't cheap, so perhaps people are dialing back on movies that might not necessarily lift their moods at this point. Either that, or American audiences just really, really love movies about tiny, talking dogs. [USA Today]
