And while all of that was going on, the rest of America went to the theater and saw Homer Simpson be himself. The big yellow fella KILLED the rest of the films out this weekend by grossing over $71 million. Meanwhile Harry Potter dropped to third, Bruce Willis hung on to #8 and Lindsay Lohan's utterly fantastic flop of a film, (destined to win a Golden Raspberry) came in at #9.
