The film, starring Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Meagan Good and Adam Brody, earned $30 million in its opening weekend, despite poor reviews, thanks in large part to Hart's star power. It opened several million dollars shy of its predecessor, Think Like a Man, which pulled $33.6 million in its opening weekend.
Last week's winner, 22 Jump Street, just missed out on No. 1 with $29 million. How to Train Your Dragon 2 took third place, with $25.3 million.
Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys, a screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, opened in fourth place with a disappointing $13.5 million.
Maleficent settled in fifth place with $13 million, bringing its domestic total to $186 million.
