Critic Reviews for Good Kids
Plays like third-rate Richard Linklater, minus the acclaimed filmmaker's eye for keenly observed characters and ear for realistic dialogue.
An average, uneven, coming-of-age flick with decent performances.
... has some amusing moments of awkward silliness, yet the jokes eventually become more lazy and obnoxious while the plotting turns predictable.
Nothing very original here, but it's well played and shot, capturing one summer's hectic span for four kids about to enter college.
It's not a great first feature for McCoy, but it's surely a competent one that speaks loudly -- and somewhat profanely -- to a budding talent with intriguing possibilities.
Audience Reviews for Good Kids
Far from a game changing high school comedy but not bad by any means. I think the second they take the conventional road it starts the inevitable fall into cliche which at first didn't seem to be the case. Guilty pleasure film that serves an age old genre well, seeing Weitz in the producing role made alot of sense considering the involvement in American Pie.
