Good Boys Review

REVIEW: ‘Good Boys’ Break Bad In Crude, But Fun, Comedy

The best comedies are generally those with some heart. Think Eighth Grade, Booksmart, Superbad (this is a particularly relevant comparison to Good Boys; Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the screenplay for Superbad, and produced Good Boys). They have plenty of laughs, yes, but they make you feel something too. Whether you relate to characters’ friendships or life experiences, something exists to balance out the humor.  And finding that balance is key. Jokes can only take a movie so far. And Good Boys certainly has plenty of laughs. It’s arguably the funniest movie of the year. But it also has a heart. There’s something endearing, and admittedly nostalgic, about the main kids here.  Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon), and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) are best friends trying to navigate the treacherous world of sixth grade. When they get invited to the “cool kids” party – a kissing party, no less – panic sets in. They have no experience and need to take a crash course before the party.  They settle on the idea of using Max’s dad’s (completely off-limits) drone to spy on next door neighbor Hannah (Molly Gordon) and her boyfriend. Things predictably go wrong as Hannah takes the drone and holds it hostage from the boys. And from there hijinks and hilarity ensue as the trio works to get the drone back before Max’s dad (Will Forte in a brief but brilliant turn) comes home.   Said hijinks and the jokes are largely sexual in nature, mostly focusing on the boys’ paper-thin grasp of the subject. While it’s not often truly offensive and rarely ventures into gross-out territory (though to be fair, when it goes there, it really goes for it), it does grow tiresome at times. Even when the jokes remain funny independently, there’s a definite feeling of sameness that sometimes sticks around a little too strong.
