These days, it isn’t too often that we get low-to-mid-budget comedies in theaters, and when they do, a lot of them tend to fall pretty short of expectations. This is often due to either poor reception or them being released too damn close to the more frequent Hollywood blockbusters that permeate the current landscape.
As such, one such film, Good Boys, was expected to make a modest $12-15 million opening, coming in behind Hobbs & Shaw. Of course, that didn’t ultimately happen. Instead, Good Boys took in roughly $21 million in its opening weekend, curb-stomping Hobbs & Shaw, which only made $14.1 million.
According to THR, this is the first time an R-rated comedy has started out at number one ever since The Boss usurped Batman v Superman back in 2016. Needless to say, producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are likely very pleased with their latest Superbad-esque offering and the reception it’s had from both critics and fans.
