Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish‘s comedy flick Night School held off a challenge from Warner Bros.’ animated film Smallfoot to top the weekend box office with a $26 million debut.

Night School was directed by Malcolm D. Lee, who also directed Girls Trip, which debuted with $31 million in 2017.

Night School follows smalltime con artist Teddy Walker (Hart) who is forced to go to night school to earn his GED and get his life back on track.

Haddish plays Carrie Carter, a single mom of 3, who uses humor and unorthodox teaching styles to motivate her students to earn their GED.

Night School‘s $26 million weekend debut is just shy of the $31 million that most movie critics had predicted.

    Multiple post on a Saturday!!! Thank you Ms. Rose ?. Congrats Kev and Tiff!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Good for them, and this is under Kevin’s production company, which makes this success even sweeter!

    Hopefully, his success continues as more Blacks are employed, like Tyler Perry and many others (Malcolm D. Lee, Spike, Ava Duvenay, Byron Allen, Mario Van Peebles-Awesome TV Director/Producer, Shonda Rhimes, Oprah Winfrey, etc.)!

    We must create our own projects, fund and cast them!

    Congrats

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I hate that slick back hair look on her. You have to have the right face shape and hairline, Shaunie O’Neil looked awful with her hair like that. Along with the trashy Kardashian/ Jenner ho’s.

    Unfortunately we are not all perfect. Sometimes we want to try different looks because we ourselves like it….

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Congrats Tiff and Kevin. I know with all the back and forth with Katt and his crew it was looking a little shaky, but you made your keep.

    Went to see the movie tonight – a waste of time and money. Not funny at all. Boring as hell!!

    I guess Kev speaking up for Tiffany actually worked. He put that cape on to save his movie after so many people were debating if Tiff was funny.

  • RentEmSpoons

    Not bad. Hart ain’t the funniest, but salute to his hustle.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I do admire how Kevin & Tiffany. Especially Kevin! Interacts with his fanbase on IG. He REALLY loves his fans! Unlike my favorite comedian of ALL time. Who could careless about them. Smh

  • KcoolMuziq

    U forgot Will & Jada Smith.

  • Yardgirl

    I agree, I follow him on IG

  • Yardgirl

    Congrats to them! I had a free movie preview but was unable to go because of the weather. I will try and go see it soon.

  • MRiGOThim

    I mean its Kevin & Tiff what did u expect lmao :P

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Ooh shit

  • dontgetblocked

    That’s not a lot and this is probably their biggest week. There was no competition.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Damn Kevin really short. Well that killed my sexual Fantasy…?

  • Li-Wright

    Girls Trip went to make $100+million. It had “legs” and was in the top boxo for about a month. This should have long legs too. $26M is a good amount for a comedy. The comedies are killing it this year.

  • Li-Wright

    It could have legs like Girl Trip. I predict it will be in the top 5 for about a month.

  • MookieFly

    I saw it last night. It actually wasnt bad. I wouldn’t say non stop chuckles but it was a decent movie. I liked the message about education and people with learning disabilities, although it was played for laughs.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I am so happy and proud of Tiffany,due to the fact that she has accomplished one of her goals and that was to be in a position to take care of her momz.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yes, indeed, Will and Jada…”The Karate Kid”…”The Secret Life of Bees”…”Annie” the movie…Fela the Broadway music, along with The Carters, among other projects!

  • ALLMINE?

    I never noticed his height until now

  • KcoolMuziq

    Also the hit movie “ATL” that Will refused to greenlite unless it starred rapper/sex symbol/social activist T.I. Whom they didn’t want to cast as the lead.

  • the chosen one
