Apr 08, 2003 by Ian Evans

Joel Schumacher’s Phone Booth, starring Colin Farrell, topped the box office over the weekend with roughly $15 million of loose change being found in the booth’s coin return. The teen flick What a Girl Wants outmuscled the Vin Diesel vehicle A Man Apart, earning $11.4 million and $11 million respectively.

The Chris Rock comedy Head of State took another $8.5 million from taxpayers, while the Queen Latifah/Steve Martin comedy Bringing Down the House rounded out the top five by adding another $8.3 million in its fifth week.
