Adam Sandler’s low-brow comedy “The Waterboy” was deposed by an animated film about babies in diapers. “The Rugrats Movie,” based on a popular cable cartoon, topped the weekend box-office returns with a take of $28 million, while “The Waterboy” slipped to No. 3 after two weeks in the top spot. “Enemy of the State,” a political thriller starring Will Smith and Gene Hackman, opened at No. 2 with $20.3 million. The Brad Pitt vehicle “Meet Joe Black” slipped a notch to fourth with $8.6 million, while the horror sequel “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer” slid three places to fifth with $7.2 million. The new Woody Allen movie “Celebrity,” which features a neat cameo by Leonardo DiCaprio, made its debut with $1.7 million on 493 screens (vs. 2,782 screens for “Rugrats”).
