Seth Rogen has ridden the tight rope between outrageously crass and authentically sweet to great success in films like Superbad and Sausage Party. In Good Boys, he lowers the age limit, taking on the fortunes of three sixth graders.
Max (Room's Jacob Tremblay) is the leader of the Beanbag Boys, three inseparable friends. But with Keith’s parents breaking up, Brady getting bullied for his musical theatre dreams and Max being invited to the cool kids' 'kissing party', are the boys going to make it to the seventh grade?
With unaffected performances and a lively sense of the concerns of real sixth graders, this is a twisted yet adorable comedy that will make you very glad you’re no longer in short trousers.
