Playing in 3,332 locations, its first weekend grosses are quite good, seeing as it was produced for little more than $40 million (not counting marketing costs). But audiences gave it an A grade at CinemaScore.

Universal Pictures' "Kevin Hart: What Now?" garnered $12 million and placed second, according to ComScore, compared with a forecast of about $13 million from Box Office Guru.
