DreamWorks' "The Prince of Egypt" was the top animated film on Super Bowl football weekend placing 10th with $2.6M, making a grand total of $90.8M. Disney/Pixar's "A Bug's Life" followed closely at 12th taking in $1.9M for a dazzling cume of $154.1M. "Bug's Life" has already outgrossed Disney's "Pocohontas" ($141.6M) but won't reach Pixar's blockbuster first effort "Toy Story" which accumulated $191.8M. Disney's live-action/CGI "Mighty Joe Young" moved up a slot to 13th with $1.6M amassing $45.5M in 6 weeks. Both Paramount's "The Rugrats Movie" and DreamWorks/PDI's "Antz," have finally run out of breath at the box office, taking 23rd and 36th, respectively. However, the two films can be proud of their box office sums which currently stand at $94.2M for the babies and a $90.4M tally for the insects.
