The Lion's Share

Disney pounced on videophiles yet again this week: The Mouse House's direct-to-video animation The Lion King 1 1/2 -- a new look at the heartfelt jungle tale through the eyes of Simba pals Timon and Pumbaa -- made a killing at Nos. 1 and 6. But the Coen brothers' loyal fan base put Intolerable Cruelty second in sales and first among rental debuts. Clooney and Zeta-Jones, hear them roar!
