weekend box office good boys

It took almost the entire summer, but a comedy finally found its way to the top of the box office. The raunchy Good Boys ended up winning the weekend, coming in first and knocking Hobbs and Shaw to number 2. But since Universal owns both Good Boys and Hobbs and Shaw, they still came out ahead.
