LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Late Monday night, at a theater somewhere in the world, "Titanic" became the biggest moneymaker in movie history, breaking the global box-office record set by "Jurassic Park."

20th Century Fox said Tuesday the disaster epic has grossed more than $919.8 million worldwide, surpassing $913.1 million for "Jurassic Park." And "Titanic" did it in just 10 weeks.

That's great! And I saw the movie for the fifth time Monday, so my $4.25 helped make history! YAY!!!

To those who want some food for thought,

I realize that Titanic is not as bad as some of the movies produced these days, but I wonder how many nude painting scenes and explicit (albeit not shown) sex scenes it takes to make a movie unfit for consumption by decent, moral, law loving people? I'm not attacking the first amend., though no doubt some will say I am. When media produced under the Freedom clause alters negatively the behavior of a citizen and fuels criminal behavior as in the case of Ted Bundy, it seems we would learn that violence and/or sex in the media ought to be avoided.

Concerned . . . that's all.

Hey Tod, where's the explicit sex scene in Titanic? If your talking about the scene where Jack draws Rose, all you saw were her breasts and I do not consider that to be 'explicit'.

All you have to do is take a look at films regarding African, Aboriginal and Amazonian woman, to name but a few. They do not hide their 'breasts', it is apart of their culture/dress.

Todd, what does Ted Bundy have to do with Titanic?? Where is the relevance? If you're implying that violence,sex,etc. in movies promote corruption, I think you'd better pick on another movie.

a film like titanic would be considered graceful but the explicitand nude material with the breasts and all that turned this movie into a pile of junk
