It's back to the pound for Josie and the Pussycats. Despite mountains of hype, the comic book-inspired teen pic grossed a dismal $5.2 million at the box office over the weekend, bad enough for seventh place. The film's smelly b.o. will no doubt derail plans for a sequel. The news was far better for another big-screen heroine: Bridget Jones's Diary, starring Renée Zellweger as a neurotic single Brit, opened at No. 3 with a respectable $10.8 million. Two other newcomers the David Spade white-trash comedy Joe Dirt and the urban family dramedy Kingdom Come bowed modestly at No. 4 and No. 6, with respective grosses of $8.2 million and $7.5 million. Meanwhile, the kiddie caper Spy Kids spent its third consecutive weekend at No. 1, pulling in another $12.8 million. Along Came a Spider held steady at No. 2 with $11.3 million, and the Johnny Depp drug drama Blow slipped two places to No. 5 with $8.0 million.
