“Good Boys” was a charming and explicit coming of age comedy that has plenty of laughs and a hint of nostalgia that is open ended enough to tug at the heartstrings of any generation. Now i did free download this movie and my gripe with this film is though it helped with the realism, some of the Super-bad type dialogue & humor seemed forced with the F bombs every other word pulling me out of my experience. Not that I don’t love a good full movie but seeing 12 year old on screen dealing with very mature themes did challenge my comfort zone. The hit or miss slapstick humor aside, this film knew exactly what it was and pushes the bounds of what a child actor can bring to the screen. The leading 3 characters carry you through in an almost perfect even though at times uncomfortable fashion. I’ll give these Good Boys two thumbs up and this movie is so much fun to watch online.
Stars : Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon
