It's a well made entertaining movie .

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

But comedy has to be entertaining.

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

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

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

The story is contrived and far fetched.

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

Tedious .

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

Waste of money.

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

I enjoyed it alot.

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

Great coming of age story from THE Seth Rogen !!

Who Knew Coming of Age Could Be This Funny.

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

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

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).

Let me start by saying this is an entertaining movie.

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

This film was so apathetic and irresponsible and was truly boring too I fell asleep halfway through.

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

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

It's a total waste of time.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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

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

Very fun and enjoyable.

Don't waste your money on this cruel, heartless child abusing film Britons.

Also a good coming of age story.

The whole movie is really entertaining.

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.

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.

Coming of age comedy, raunchy adventure.

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

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

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

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.

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!

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

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.

But apart from that I really enjoyed it.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

The jokes were great & the story was engaging!

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

This movie was just pointless and boring.

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.

It's an enjoyable comedy film.

89 minutes of fun , silliness and enjoyable script.

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

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

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

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.

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

Basically everything was predictable, again thanks to the trailer.

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

I found the film to be pretty enjoyable & fresh!

Worst Movie I've Ever Seen .

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.

Total waste of time.

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.
