BOX OFFICE

VALID I.D. No identity crisis for Sony. The studio snagged the two top spots at the box office this weekend, with John Cusack’s motel thriller scaring two-time champ Anger Management out of first place. While Dustin Hoffman and Edward Burns’ heist flick Confidence bowed at a respectable $4.6 mil, the Douglas clan’s It Runs in the Family and the spring-break sex-and-booze-athon The Real Cancun both belly flopped, eking out dismal grosses of $2.8 million and $2.1 million, respectively. And British soccer hit Bend It Like Beckham, approaching a vigorous $10 mil in its seventh week, is still alive and kicking. Cheers, mates!
