This might be my favorite studio comedy of the year.

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...

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.

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

The main strength of "Good Boys" is that its jokes, while derived from outrageous situations, work because the characters react in realistic ways.

There's an honest heart beneath the racy laughs. If only sixth-graders themselves could actually see it.

Not superbad - but not that good either.

We may wish the boys had found another path, but at the same time, we feel fortunate to accompany them on their journey.

It... trades in lewd and crude humour, to be sure, but it does so by way of a funny story of a trio of Grade Sixers attempting to negotiate the hairpin turn from boyhood to manhood.

Treading the same raunchy path as "Neighbors" and "Superbad," the contrast of child actors uttering obscenities and utilizing sex toys as weapons is a comical mix of one outrageous mess after another.

Mostly... it's more funny and charming than it is raunchy. If these boys are the men of the future, their parents have done something right.

Your enjoyment of Good Boys will depend on how much you've already seen of Good Boys.
