Great Weekend for 'Bridget'

04/07/1998 AT 12:00 AM EDT

Good news for Renée Zellweger. Her two-week-old comedy vehicle "Bridget Jones's Diary" zoomed to No. 1 this weekend, supplanting the seemingly unstoppable "Spy Kids." The weekend's two new movies did only ho-hum business. "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles," the third of Paul Hogan's comedies about the colorful Australian outdoorsman (and the first in about a dozen years), opened at No. 4., and Tom Green's "Freddy Got Fingered," which got butchered by critics, was an unimpressive No. 5. 1. "Bridget Jones's Diary," $10.5 million 2. "Spy Kids," $10.2 million 3. "Along Came a Spider," $9.1 million 4. "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles," $8 million 5. "Freddy Got Fingered," $7.3 million 6. "Blow," $6 million 7. "Joe Dirt," $5.4 million 8. "Kingdom Come," $4.7 million 9. "Josie and the Pussycats," $3.1 million 10. "Enemy at the Gates," $2.1 million
