Bad Boys: Ride or Die has beat the odds in its box office success so far, as it was released during a time that has been very unsuccessful for blockbuster films. Various highly-anticipated films, including Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga and The First Omen, have underperformed expectations at the 2024 box office. This year has had several record-low box office weekends, including Super Bowl weekend and Memorial Day weekend, which saw some of the lowest overall numbers in years. It has been difficult for theatrical releases to gain momentum again, but Bad Boys: Ride or Die has allowed the box office to pick up a little bit.

 

Though Bad Boys: Ride or Die is getting mixed reviews, with a 64% Rotten Tomatoes score, audiences are loving the movie. The film has an impressive 97% approval rating among audiences, who are taking to social media to appreciate the film's action-packed conclusion. Audiences especially appreciated the roles of Reggie and Armando, younger members of the Bad Boys team, who took on more prominent roles in the sequel than they had in previous films, leading some to call for a Bad Boys spinoff that focuses on these characters.

If the online reactions were not enough of a good sign, the box office totals for Bad Boys: Ride or Die make the prospects of Bad Boys 5 even more promising. The series has done fairly well commercially and is now one of the few series that can claim that much-coveted $1 billion franchise title. With this milestone hit, the franchise talents will be more likely to want to eke more life out of the Bad Boys franchise, whether that be through a direct sequel or a spinoff series.
