Good Time Max is the story of two brothers, Max and Adam. Both have genius intelligence. One is a doctor, the other a computer expert. Until drugs get involved and turn their lives around. It's a story about how we grow up and sometimes grow apart. The struggles we go through, and how no matter what, family is family.
This film was written, directed, and starring James Franco. It was also dedicated to his own brother, making me think that perhaps in part he took from real life for this story. James Franco is an amazing and versatile actor, who has grown into his craft remarkably well. I really appreciated what he did for these two characters.
I really enjoyed this movie. It did have a few slow moments, but it was still a moving story. I thought that James Franco and Matt Bell, who played Adam, had wonderful on screen chemistry. You really felt they were family, and could feel their pain and struggles. There were a few gross out moments, and some comic relief thrown in.
All in all, I have to give Good Time Max a positive review. I was tired when I watched it, and it still managed to hold my attention. I would have to say it's worth the watch.
