BOX OFFICE GETS SILLY

Adam Sandler’s goofball comedy “The Waterboy” had a $25.2 million weekend to top the charts for a second consecutive week and push its 10-day take to almost $80 million, according to studio estimates. Opening in the No. 2 spot with $17.5 million was the slasher flick “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer” (thus topping the $15.8 million debut of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” last October). Brad Pitt’s three-hour “Meet Joe Black,” which many critics called stupid, made its debut in third place with $15 million. “The Siege” slipped two places to No. 4, and “Antz” crawled down a notch to fifth.
