‘TRAINING’ WHEELS

It’s enough to make you think somebody plans this stuff: Just as speculation about nominations for Training Day’s Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke came to a head, the video was released to stores. No surprise: The action-drama set on L.A.’s mean streets debuted at No. 1. It also won’t be a surprise if Washington’s Best Actor win lures lots more people to their local video purveyor. Pulling in at No. 2 was Riding in Cars With Boys, starring Drew Barrymore as–get this–a rebellious kid who overcomes enormous obstacles to achieve widespread success.
