Bend It... Straight to Number One
- Box office success for football dream-come-true film

BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM shot to the top of the cinema charts on the first weekend of its release.

The feelgood movie about an Asian girl's ambition to become a top footballer has received lashings pf praise from critics and now the punters appear to agree, pouring into cinemas to knock Ice Age off the top spot.

Bend It... took upwards of UKP2 million over the course of last weekend, perhaps helped by the huge publicity surrounding the injury to the real life David Beckham, whose broken foot bone could mean the England captain misses this summer's World Cup finals.
