The box-office success of “Good Boys” is no laughing matter.

The new release became the first R-rated comedy flick to open in the top spot of the weekend domestic box office since April 2016, when “The Boss” starring Melissa McCarthy finished number one.

“Good Boys” ? which stars Jacob Trembley, Brady Noon and Keith L. Williams ? made $21 million over the weekend, ending a two-week run by “Hobbs & Shaw" atop the box office. That movie, which is a spinoff of the “Fast & Furious” franchise, came in second this weekend at $14.1 million.

“The Lion King” finished third with $11.9 million and was followed by newcomer “The Angry Birds Movie 2,” which made $10.5 million. “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” rounded out the top five by making $10.1 million, followed by another newcomer, “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” which earned $9 million to come in sixth.

“Good Boys” centers on the hijinks that ensue when a trio of 12-year-olds are invited to a kissing party for the first time.
