Good Boys Review Written By B. Gunn
They say you can’t turn a bad boy good, but once a good boy’s gone bad – he’s gone forever. Hopefully, that’s not the case in the new movie “Good Boys” starring Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams as Max, Thor, and Lucas, three Middle-Schoolers who get invited to a kissing party because, well, that’s a thing. Problem is none of them know how to kiss.
They use their little middle school brains to come up with a plan to learn but somehow that plan turns into a crazy-a$$ adventure involving sex dolls, molly, and beer – among other things! Before I go any further, let me just inform you that Seth Rogan is one of the producers so that you know what you’re getting yourselves into, ok? Cool.
Anything Seth Rogan signs on to, we know it’s gonna be super funny…and borderline offensive.

I was looking around and some of the people in the theater gave that painful “Should I be laughing at this?” laugh, so for those of you easily offended, stay home. This isn’t the funniest of Rogan’s films, and it’s definitely not as good as “Superbad.”
It will make you reminisce of your curious middle school days of when times were simpler when we thought the slightest problem was the end of the world. The best way to view this movie is to put yourselves in the shoes of a teen or tween, and just sit back and enjoy, and for God’s sake, don’t take this thing so seriously.
I’m co-signing “Good Boys” to the fullest. Shout-out to all you parents out there.
