AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Good Boys is undermined by an eagerness to repeatedly indulge in profane humor, but its appealing cast and ultimately thoughtful message often shine through.

Movie Info

After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room's Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn't know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon, HBO's Boardwalk Empire) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams, Fox's The Last Man On Earth) decide to use Max's dad's 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 Max's 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 Party's Molly Gordon and Ocean's Eight's Midori Francis).

Critic Reviews for Good Boys

All Critics (241) | Top Critics (42)

Overall the movie delivers on its premise.

February 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Some of this is fun and inventive, some of it repetitive and feeble, especially the heavy emphasis on the naivety of the protagonists and the hopelessness of their attempts at cool.

September 18, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This might be my favorite studio comedy of the year.

August 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Mostly, the story is just scant scaffolding on which to hang cheerfully crass jokes about Stranger Things, anal beads, and cocaine. But it's a winning showcase...

August 19, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The movie's charm comes from its ability to conjure up the innocence of the twilight of childhood; its humor arises from the adult perspective of certain not-so-innocent things. Good Boys may not be for everyone but my funny bone was tickled.

August 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

For all its wacky, gross-out, shock-ya humor, Good Boys has a lot of heart.
