Our Score
Strait-laced best friends Max, Lucas and Thor (Jacob Tremblay, Keith L Williams, Brady Noon) embark on a perilous mission when they break a drone belonging to Max's father while trying to learn about kissing. This raucous comedy frames the adult misadventures of The Hangover through the eyes of 12-year-olds, an initially odd prospect that actually works well. It may be shocking to hear such strong language out of young mouths, but their inexperience leads to some hilarious incidents. It's hard not to be won over by the numerous incorrect phrases ("two weeks into sixth grade and I'm already a social piranha!"), or the trio's earnest respect for the dangers of drugs. The more edgy scenes are a little hit and miss - their comedy fight in a frat house is fun, but the numerous sex gags get old. Ending with a sweet message about friendship, Good Boys is the pre-teen comedy you never knew you needed.
