(Newser) – In case anyone wondered whether Seth Rogen could make what amounts to a movie-length penis joke and get people to flock to it, the answer is yes.

Coming in third was Pete's Dragon, with a lackluster $21.6 million debut. And rounding out the top five were Jason Bourne with $13.6 million and Bad Moms with $11.5 million.
