THE CHARTS

SANDY'S DUNKIN'

SEEMS LIKE MAY IS SANDRA Bullock's month, as far as video is concerned. After a series of box office and video underperformers, the Texas sweetheart's latest romantic comedy, Two Weeks Notice, debuted at the top of the chart -- two years to the month after her last No. 1 debut, Miss Congeniality. It probably didn't hurt that she had some help from costar Hugh Grant, whose last turn as a moneyed cad, in About a Boy, crowned him a video prince. TOP 10 TAPE RENTALS
