Even an 11th hour publicity stunt/pregnancy prank on The Tonight Show proved to be no help to Tom Green's gross-out comedy Freddy Got Fingered. The dismally reviewed pic debuted at No. 5 at the box office with an icky $7.3 million. The news was equally bad for Aussie actor Paul Hogan, whose critically savaged Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles opened at No. 4 with a tepid $8 million. Meanwhile, thanks to a boost in its theater count and repeat viewings by women, Bridget Jones's Diary jumped two places to No. 1 in its second weekend of release. The acclaimed British romantic comedy starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth grossed $10.5 million for the Friday-to-Sunday period. After three weekends at the top, Spy Kids slipped to No. 2 with $10.2 million. The film's 24-day total stands at $86 million. The Morgan Freeman thriller Along Came a Spider was the No. 3 film with $9.1 million.
