Plot Summary

Just how bad can one day get? The creative minds behind Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party take on sixth grade hard in the outrageous comedy, Good Boys. After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Rooms Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesnt know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon, HBOs Boardwalk Empire) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams, Foxs The Last Man On Earth) decide to use Maxs dads drone which Max is forbidden to touch to spy (they think) on a teenage couple making out next door. But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is destroyed. Desperate to replace it before Maxs dad (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth) gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and running from both the cops and terrifying teenage girls (Life of the Partys Molly Gordon and Oceans Eights Midori Francis).

    What a pleasant surprise that the movie is far funnier and more perceptive about this brutal, hilarious time in a child’s life than I anticipated. show more

    For all its claims to be rebellious, Good Boys is surprisingly tame by today’s standards. show more
