'SIMPSONS' FILM TOPS BOX OFFICE WITH $71.9M

Woo hoo! The Simpsons Movie turned doughnuts into dollars over the weekend, raking in $71.9-million to debut as the top movie. The big screen tale of the lovable, if dysfunctional, family rolled over the competition, sending last week's top movie, Universal Studio's I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, into second place with $19-million, a 44 percent drop. Rounding out the top five were Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, $17.1-million; Hairspray, $15.6-million; and No Reservations, $11.8-million.

Steve Martin has surprise wedding

Steve Martin married girlfriend Anne Stringfield during a ceremony at his Los Angeles home, his publicist said. Former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, a friend of Martin's, presided over Saturday's ceremony, publicist Alan Nierob said. Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels was Martin's best man. Most of the roughly 75 guests - who included Tom Hanks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Carl Reiner and Ricky Jay - were not told that he and Stringfield would wed when they were invited to his home for a "party," Nierob said. Martin, 61, was previously married to actress Victoria Tennant. It was the first marriage for Stringfield, 35, a writer and former staffer for the New Yorker magazine. The two had dated for about three years, Nierob said.
