Shake your pom-poms, shake your pom-poms. The Kirsten Dunst starrer "Bring It On" easily led the box office over the long holiday weekend for the second consecutive week, taking in $15.8 million, according to estimates by Exhibitor Relations Inc.

The weekend's two "high-profile" openers couldn't muster much mullah. "Highlander: Endgame," the fourth in the cult favorite series, failed to make the Top Five, bowing in at No. 6 with $6.6 million. The Amanda Peet starrer "Whipped" failed to whip up enough business to make a Top 10 debut.

"The Cel" starring Jennifer Lopez, Vince Vaughan and Vincent D'Onofrio rebounded from third place to second place this week, thrilling audiences in its third week to the tune of $9.3 million. Its take to date is $45.8 million.

Rounding out the Top Five were "Space Cowboys" with $8.7 million, "The Art of War" with $8.2 million and "The Original Kings of Comedy" with $6.6 million.
