The plot has a coming of age story while being in familiar territory with another comedy movie.

The jokes fly quickly and mostly land in this coming of age story.

The convenient store scene, the swing scene, and the teenage girl scenes I knew were coming and left me feeling bored after how much I had already seen them.

Very fun and enjoyable.

It's an enjoyable comedy film.

Good boys is the coming of age movie everyone should see..

This movie was like watching paint dry.

The good boys gone bad/caught in a bad situation sub-genre of comedy is nothing new but thanks to a likeable collection of young stars and some solid laughs, the Seth Rogen backed Good Boys is an enjoyable comedic romp that showcases the doom and gloom around big screen comedies is far from correct.

Don't Waste Your Money or Your Time .

Fortunately, it avoids the latter throughout, impressing with genuinely funny comedy, three great central performances, and a story that - while pretty much another rehash of Superbad - has got a little bit of heartwarming depth to it, making Good Boys a genuinely enjoyable and often really sweet watch.

It is a good story because it is entertaining, touching and relatable all at the same time.

Comedy doesn't have to be a good story, It can be as stupid and plot-less as anything.

Yes it very much is, but the humor misses quite often, They try and make it funny every moment, but it gets kinda boring.

It's a total waste of time.

Would most definitely watch it again if it was to come on the TV at home and would recommend it to anyone who finds silly films entertaining - thoroughly enjoyed!

It is simply a funny raunchy tale about coming of age.

I can gladly say that the humour is improved upon since Sausage Party, and rather the main joke throughout the movie is that food is swearing, Good Boys manages to keep the swearing kids from becoming boring and repetitive by putting them in all kinds of hilarious scenarios which keeps the movie fresh and entertaining.

This had the possibility of being a cute coming of age movie, instead it's full of filthy puns and overstated sexual innuendos.

Worst movie i've ever watched.

It was actually funny but I hated its ending it shouldn't end that way it is just 2 predictable

The movie delivers a more or less dialogue, with funny bits and overall corny and predictable storyline with a boring plot.

It's funny I'm saying this, but this was a coming of age movie.

It's a summer afternoon at the movies, light comedy and some early coming of age, no heavy drama.

Who Knew Coming of Age Could Be This Funny.

"Good Boys is sporadically funny, but it quickly falls apart due to lazy writing, wonky plotting and repetitive gags...

Also a good coming of age story.

Tedious .

A simple coming of age movie with some laughs along the way.

Good Boys is sporadically funny, but it falls apart due to lazy writing, wonky plotting and repetitive gags.

Despite some repetitive jokes and an over-reliance on putting its oblivious heroes in icky or dangerous situations, Good Boys more than lives up to its name.

This movie feels discombobulated the comedy feels great at times, but then it instantly goes to sad right after which makes it feel more disjointed and broken.

All three are likeable, funny characters with well written, compelling character arcs.

89 minutes of fun , silliness and enjoyable script.

If anything it's a raunchy coming of age comedy.

Maybe it is not as funny , but still worth the watch if you liked the other two.

Total waste of time.

These kids find themselves in one ridiculous scenario after another, which makes for a very entertaining time at the movies.

Coming of age comedy, raunchy adventure.

It is entertaining from the very start to the very last word spoken.

I found the film to be pretty enjoyable & fresh!

But apart from that I really enjoyed it.

Surprisingly funny and intense!

Stupidly funny in places which makes an otherwise OK movie well worth the watch .

Mildly funny, kids seem to young and was pretty boring this movie was over hyped

In an age where the female lead comedy or the man-child filled bromance comedies are the hot property in Hollywood, Good Boys focus on the awkward tweenage years brings something fresh to the table, that while certainly not appropriate for the age group it represents, offers up everyone else a comedy that feels both fresh and familiar, enjoyable without ever threatening to become overly memorable.

This is formulaic to the extreme.

I really enjoyed it and would buy it on Blu-Ray.

Today's movie decides to analyze that, but in a different light that hopes to be entertaining while touching at the same time.

Great coming of age story from THE Seth Rogen !!

Of the finest films you have seen in this year really very funny and fascinating especially Max very shine in his role

I think this is my lowest rates movie on here and the only reason I'm writing a review is because I'm bored on the ride home.

Well written, wish my 6th grade year was that exciting.

The film coasts along relying on the innocence and ignorance of kids as it's template for cheap punchlines, and it quickly grows tiresome despite an occasionally chuckle-worthy line.

The one thing I would nitpick about is that the movie is too long.

There are some jokes that don't land and the first third isn't anything more than, I suppose, 'quaint', but the picture gets moving as it enters its second act and its generally good vibe creates an enjoyable viewing experience.

A little too long and a bit too much swearing, but humorous and enjoyable throughout.

Worst Movie I've Ever Seen .

And the best part was this kind of tone stayed consistent throughout the whole film as well as developing on more sweet heartfelt coming of age kind of tones and issues.

Let me start by saying this is an entertaining movie.

Because this movie is made for neither I think..the jokes are clearly made for adults, while there are situations only a kid can laugh, because they are "childish" and for me tedious to watch.. Superbad was fun, ok, this one, isn't!

This movie is really bad, really cliche, and beyond stupid.

Perhaps it's the journey of friendships, growing up and the general feel vibes that make this film more enjoyable than just all the crude and crass jokes.

Relevant as it was, the typical plot falls left me a little bored, waiting for either unique comedy or a deep scene to save me from the chaotic adventure.

A great comedy with good laughs and likable characters, as well as a refreshing story with a lot more depth than you might expect at first, it's a surprising but most importantly thoroughly entertaining watch right the way through.

Don't waste you time or money........

It is a joy to watch Lucas and Thor while Max, the "main character" is actually pretty boring (and to think, he is the only child actor who has already made a name for himself in this movie).

One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.

Let me begin with the fact that I am Hungarian so watching an american cliche movie is not promising too much.

I enjoy a comedy movie as much as the next person, but this movie was so bad that I walked out after half an hour.

While the film does have jokes, the method of how our laughs come can feel repetitive.

Good Boys is one of those movies that you can see once and you have the urge to see it over and over again, the storyline was not only very adult and very filthy, but it was very entertaining to where I was laughing for the whole 90 minutes.

I do not understand why this movie has a low rating because honestly, this movie is very entertaining and funny and its one that is worth all the money you spend for it.

Learning about sex is part of coming of age, after all.

Good Boys hits all the notes you would expect and hits all the predictable beats that you would find in most of these comedies.

Had no story line, rushed scenes, I mean...

Only once have I ever walked out of a movie, and this trash nearly became the second one.

However, it has some predictable moments due to it's similarities to other films, especially Superbad.

It's surprisingly tasteful at times and wrapped in a cute atmosphere as the naivety of the three boys manages to dull the blow that comes with the adult themes in this movie, which worked for me in terms of adding a new spin to freshen things up.

They keep hitting the same few jokes into your head throughout the movie, and it becomes a little tiresome.

That it went the 'friendship-message' route (in the end) was pretty clichéd and predictable.

at least it's more entertaining than Booksmart .

He just brings such a good energy to his role and he is a very likeable person and his character was very entertaining to watch.

Then Max, who has a crush on his classmate Brixlee, snags an unexpected invite to a party, and not just any party, a kissing party, and Brixlee will be there!

I enjoyed it.

Basically everything was predictable, again thanks to the trailer.

The worst movie in 2019 I wish if their worse than 1 to give them, not suitable to kids or family a lot of cursing and swearing and the language don't fit for kids I wish if they can delete it from the history that how bad it is

It goes through the usual coming of age film motions so its not a very original effort.

I enjoyed it alot.

The worst movie in 2019 waste of 1 and a half-hour of your life .

Best way to describe it enjoyed it for what it was .

Good Boys manages to balance hard-R comedy, with a heartfelt coming of age story, even with all the bad stuff they are doing, the film never loses sight of the fact that these are really nice boys.

Good Boys manages to balance hard-R comedy, with a heartfelt coming of age story.

This movie was not as Funny as I thought it would be, but still Entertaining.

Waste of money.

In the beginning, it's constant laughs with dialogue, but as the movie progresses, it becomes stale and mediocre, and it would rely on the coming of age storyline as the leading hook of the film.

This is literally the worst movie I've seen in my life .

A relatable coming of age story .

But comedy has to be entertaining.

This movie was just pointless and boring.

This was the worst movie I've ever watched.

It combines the confusion preteen boys have about sex (and I was reminded if misinformation given to me by older neighbor boys) with coming of age.

Williams, Brady Noon LIKES:Good Pace Cute Surprisingly Deep Good Acting Some Great writing at times Funny Decent Use of Cast StoryDISLIKES:Lazy writing A Little Too Aggressive For Me Predictable Some Forced Dialogue Over Board On The Trailers AgainSummary: Looking back at the movie, this was a tall order to try to succeed in putting adult scenarios in the hands of kids.

Hearing six graders swear constantly is funny at first but the film overused that joke to the point where it became boring and irritating.

Def worth watching .

I enjoyed it.

The jokes were great & the story was engaging!

And has I sat through this movie I found myself very entertained by it, the film proved to be an enjoyable misadventure after another.

I look at this as the third installment of the "raunchy teen adventure comedy and coming of age take".

The jokes which the makers solely relied on throughout the whole movie get so repetitive that the film's purpose gets ruined.

It totally fails as a comedy, offering nothing new in the way of presenting humor, and when it tries to be a Stand By Me ripoff about "coming of age" themes it fails miserably.

The film has a coming of age story about three close friends that do everything together.

This movie features three friends at one turning point of their lives through a lot of unexpected fun moments.

The story is contrived and far fetched.

Its a very adult themed coming of age film between three friends who have to deal with growing up.

They need tips on their first kiss, google provides some entertaining answers.

And delivers a very funny,entertaining and sweet comedy that brings a new wave to comedy.

This is what it's like coming of age, growing up, and trying to figure things out and the hilarity of misunderstanding adult things.

This movie is so bad The acting was bad, the story wasn't entertaining, the "jokes" were all clichés and the plot was insanely predictable.

This might be the worst movie I've ever seen.

It's a well made entertaining movie .

The whole movie is really entertaining.

Wife and I went to a mostly empty matinee and laughed our .. bottoms off.

No not really, I found it boring and unfunny.
