The Charts

Going To The Chapel

Alyson Hannigan and Jason Biggs consummated their American Wedding vows with DVD buyers at the top of the sales chart. But their honeymoon didn't last with renters, who were more interested in Colin Farrell's hot S.W.A.T. crew, with the 2003 summer actioner taking out its competition for the No. 1 spot. Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker fans were buying up Sex and the City's fifth season as the urban comedy's final episodes began airing on HBO, and Heath Ledger's box office dud The Order redeemed itself in the rental top 10.
