Good Boys (2019)
IMDb rating: 6.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 80%Watch full movie now
Three sixth grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey that includes accidentally carrying stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.
This blast of an adventure comedy stars kids, but it gets pretty crude, and with a 16 age restriction, it’s very much not for kids – though it might take you back to some of the insane stuff you got up to at that mad age.
It’s produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also gave us Superbad and Pineapple Express, and written and directed by the Emmy-nominated team of Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, who produced on The Office and created HBO’s Hello Ladies.
Millie Davis (who played Ms O in Odd Squad) is Max’s crush Brixlee.
A number one US box office hit, Good Boys was nominated for a 2019 People’s Choice Award for Favourite Comedy Movie and has an 80% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. IndieWire calls it “adorable and twisted at the same time”, while New York Post says, “The filmmakers have their finger on the pulse of the exquisite awkwardness of the tween years.”
