Movie Review: Good Boys


“Good Boys” is yet another movie that I went to see for this blog, that received high scores on Rotten Tomatoes, even though it is far from a movie worth seeing. Good Boys is about 3 friends in grammar school that get involved with stealing a drone, stealing and buying drugs, all because of a kissing party that some young Chinese 10 year old boy is organizing. The story line is all over the place, mostly disconnected and most importantly not funny at all. Nobody laughed in the audience I was in and I was more interested in checking my watch, hoping this mostly bad movie would be over soon. There are so many scenes that were very annoying including, too many times when one or all three of the boys were screaming with these high pitched squealing sounds.

Good Boys stars Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon and Keith Williams who are close friends and fall into some ridiculous situations, the entire plot of this film. The one scene I disliked the most was when the 3 boys were trying to cross a two lane very dangerous highway to get to a mall. Only by some miracle did they manage to not get killed. There is nothing funny or entertaining about a scene like this considering the thought of a young child getting hit by a car. The problem with showing three young boys trying to cross a dangerous highway is there are children in this world who are just stupid enough to try something like this themselves and because of this, the producers of this film were extremely irresponsible by not removing this scene.

I can only guess why the critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave this movie a high 79% rating, because this is at best 40%. I do not recommend Good Boys.
