HOLLYWOOD, June 25, 2000 –- Jim Carrey, Jim Carrey and Jim Carrey. Who else did you expect?

That’s right, the titular comic’s just-released "Me, Myself & Irene" bowed at No. 1, topping the weekend box office with a nice (but unspectacular) $24.2 million, per estimates released today.

Claiming the second-place spot was DreamWorks’ poultry-centered "Chicken Run" with an estimated $17.5 million.

And what happened to that self-proclaimed "man," Shaft? Well, the Samuel L. Jackson-toplined remake took somewhat of an emasculating nosedive from No. 1 to third with a paltry second weekend take of $13.3 million.

Fourth place went to the car-chaser flick "Gone in 60 Seconds." And Martin Lawrence’s "Big Momma’s House" rounded out the Top Five for the weekend.

Here's a rundown of the weekend Top 10, according to the box office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations Co.:

1. "Me, Myself & Irene" ($24.2 mil; opening weekend) 2. "Chicken Run" ($17.5 mil; opening weekend) 3. "Shaft" ($13.3 mil; $42.9 mil overall) 4. "Gone in 60 Seconds" ($9.5 mil; $68.9 mil overall) 5.
