Good Boys Review

Good Boys movie posterSynopsis
Max (Jacob Tremblay), Lucas (Keith L. Williams), and Thor (Brady Noon) are going to a party hosted by the most popular kid in the sixth grade. When Max loses his dad’s drone, the three friends go on an epic adventure to get it back.

When the trailers dropped for Good Boys, comparisons were made instantly to Superbad. The analogy is not too far off. Where Superbad dealt with high schoolers trying to hook up with girls, Good Boys deals with sixth graders trying to hook up with girls. And since these are elementary aged kids, “hook up” means kissing. That doesn’t mean the film is approached any differently. What made this film so enjoyable for me is that the plot of the film is exactly what you would expect to see in a sexcapade like Superbad, Eurotrip or Sex Drive except starring “tweens” instead of teenagers or young adults. Despite the language and vulgarity, they are still naive children who have no experience in the adult world of sex and sex toys and their innocence makes everything ten times better. The casting was great, especially Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, and Brady Noon, the three leads. They had me laughing non-stop throughout the entire film. If they are this outstanding as kids, I can’t wait to see them as they grow up.

I thought Good Boys was GREAT 😀 The raunchy comedy in this film is what you would expect to see from an older cast. The age-appropriate innocence of the characters mixed with the maturity of the subject matter makes for a unique and hilarious blend that had me in stitches throughout the entire movie.
