“So since The Hangover has now been crowned #1 for last weekend with a take of $44 million, don’t you think it’s time to retire its status as a sleeper hit?,” a publicist friend asks. “This is all semantics but hasn’t it entered the realm of a straight-up blockbuster? To me, the all-time sleeper hit is While You Were Sleeping, which in the spring of ’95, never took in over 11 million on any single weekend on its way to an $81 million cume. The Hangover is certainly a surprise hit, but I don’t think anyone has been sleeping on it for quite a while.”
