Step Up

You'd think that the big story at the box office this weekend would be that Oliver Stone's 9/11 drama 'World Trade Center' opened to a better-than-expected $19 million or perhaps that 'Talladega Nights' headed to Victory Lane for the second weekend in a row, accelerating to a $23 million haul. But no, the movie that everyone -- and by everyone I mean Hollywood studio executives and every teenage girl in America -- is talking about is 'Step Up.' The flick, a kind of urban-set 'Dirty Dancing' starring Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, came out of nowhere to earn $21 million and take the No. 2 slot at the box office, proof that no one puts Channing and Jenna in a corner.
