good boys movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Drugs, language and adventure creates a chucklesome sense of raunchy humour in Good Boys, still best for older and mature teens. This awesome comedy is also sweet, but VERY crass!


Three sixth grade boys ditch school and embark on journey whilst carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by a pair of teenage girls, trying to repair a drone, and making their way home in time for a kissing party.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon and Keith L. Williams star in this sweet, but exceptionally raunchy comedy designed to make you laugh. Good Boys is the complete opposite to a dull kids’ comedy packed with slapstick and potty jokes, in which it features a pleasing story of typical tweens obsessed with grown up material.

Basically, Good Boys snatches the story of Superbad and replaces the teens with tweens. Partying and trying to fit in with all the “cool kids” is the largest and most realistic topic in the film, and is added to with the style of humour that numerous teens and adults love. You simply cannot expect to be coated in childish humour whilst watching good boys, as the film is undeniably not for kids. As most films and shows contain, there are always unnecessarily prolonged scenes in Good Boys. Although they each feature several hilarious jokes, it makes this comedy almost fully great, but not 100%-the-best.

Looking for a dull, childish, and dumb humoured film for a popcorn movie night? Well Good Boys is the direct diverse to those words, but is enjoyable popcorn fun for adults. The children are sweetly crude, the humour is absolutely hysterical, but the funny story is very naughty!
