I was so downtrodden and depressed after the recent announcement that Mel Gibson was rated the most powerful/rich crazy person in Hollywood, since his standing was due 100% to the frightening success of "The Passion." But here's something that cheered me up, and maybe this time next year it will be Michael Moore at the top of that list:

"`Fahrenheit 9/11,'' Michael Moore's assault on President Bush, took in $8.2 million to $8.4 million in its first day, positioning it as the weekend's No. 1 film, its distributors said Saturday."

The movie blew away the Wayans' Brothers horrifying movie "White Chicks," even though "Farenheit 9/11" was playing in 1/3 the amount of theaters! What if this becomes the feel bad movie hit of the summer? I've got a teeny amount of hope restored....
