The indomitable “Spy Kids” held the top spot at the box office for the third straight weekend, while the abduction thriller “Along Came a Spider” held the second spot again going into its second week. In the new movie sweepstakes, Renée Zellweger enjoyed a solid opening with the breezy comedy “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” while David Spade’s lowbrow “Joe Dirt” did mediocre business, according to studio estimates.
