Hollywood's top-grossing automotive starlets of 2005? Glad you asked...
Forbes' automotive listmeister Nate Chapnick has been at it again. This time, he's chronicled the top 10 vehicles in 2005's highest-grossing movies. Automobiles enjoyed a good year in Hollywood, from buxom Jessica Simpson's cavorting around in a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon in the Dukes Of Hazzard redux; to the his-and-hers Cadillac CTS-V and Mercedes-Benz C320 Wagon featured in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. But it wasn't all about more spirited iron...
Katie Holmes Tom Cruise helped save the earth with a little help from a workaday Plymouth Voyager in
War of the Worlds, and Steve Carell's 40 Year Old Virgin had audiences
doubled-over with that drunken PT Cruiser-driving barfly.
Chapnick and Co. must've popped more than a few bowls of popcorn, as in order to compile the list, it was deemed necessary to screen the 25 top-grossing U.S. films of last year to see which "most effectively integrated the vehicles into the storyline."
