Wow-ee-wow-we-wow! Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan surprised everyone by becoming this weekend's number one film with $26,375,000 on only 837 screens, MUCH higher than anticipated, and utterly wiped the floor with kiddie contenders The Santa Clause 3 and Flushed Away - making it pretty much a bona-fide phenomenon.
