Dec 26, 2000 by Ian Evans
Tom Hanks didn’t get voted off the island as moviegoers filled his stocking with an estimated $40.5 million and the number one spot for his new movie Cast Away.
Mel Gibson’s What Women Want dropped to number 2, with roughly $21.5 million, while Nic Cage’s The Family Man was third with $15.2 million.
Jim Carrey’s Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas was in fourth with $15 million but the Grinch has still stolen the year’s number one spot from Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 2.
The top five was rounded out by Sandra Bullock’s Miss Congeniality, which also features Michael Caine and Benjamin Bratt.
