Audience Reviews for Good Boys

  • Dec 30, 2019
    It's not very good, and it is very derivative but man, I guess I'm just a sucker for jokes about drug use? For whatever reason I pretty consistently find it genuinely funny. Probably says more about me than it does about Good Boys, but whatever, it's fine.

    Outside of lowering the age of the central characters this plays out like most hard R coming of age comedies about the inevitability of change. Not to say that this kind of narrative doesn't have merit or that they aren't enjoyable but at a certain point they all start to feel the same.

    Good Boys has grown on me since my first review. Much like Superbad grew on me after my initial post hype viewing. The characters are likable and they work quite well together. The story-line is cliche riddled but it can be overlooked by the amount of successful one-liners and setups. This won't appeal to everyone but I managed to adjust my initial review rating of 2 stars. 05/08/2020 This appealed as something that was not the normal take on the stoner genre. The film quickly tires and is somewhat irrelevant. I'm not sure who the target audience is for this film. Some of the character's lack of life experience and knowledge is quite funny, but overall this is not as funny as expected. The trailer is probably the best way to digest this film. The film is vulgar to only satisfy the older audience, who I'm a little shocked would be drawn to this project. Funny at times, but not my type of film. 01/11/2019

    Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg seemingly recreate "Superbad" for tweens with Good Boys and it's pretty entertaining all throughout. There's no surprise the amount of outrageous humor, gags and innuendo instilled in this film but what's equally surprising is the amount of sentiment and heart the film produces all thanks to swell performances from its trio of adolescent stars. 4/5
