THE CHARTS

'WEDDING' BLISS

Marriage has been pretty sweet for Nia Vardalos. Her ethnic blockbuster My Big Fat Greek Wedding, still enjoying a historic 45-week (so far) honeymoon in theaters, walked down the aisle with a first-place video debut. But the Greeks weren't the only ones cooking on the charts: Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan added some flavor with the nostalgic urban romance Brown Sugar, which dropped in at No. 6.
