The filmmakers have their finger on the pulse of the exquisite awkwardness of the tween years.

It banks on your cruelty, which might be interesting if the movie acknowledged its meanness and didn't smother it in the requisite late-act sentimental blather about friendship, family and so on.

In more ways than one, it's the training wheels for a better comedy-a slightly edgier and funnier one.
August 14, 2019
The comedy... hits all the expected marks for raunch and vulgarity, with the bonus that it is actually also kind of sweet.
August 14, 2019
A joke-dense and highly original coming-of-age tale that's sweet and sour in all the best ways.

The comedic situations don't compound. They stay at the same level, and the possible consequences are always mild. So are the possible rewards.
August 14, 2019
The three at the center of what passes for the story find themselves on the cusp of a new, uncertain phase of life. This saves "Good Boys" from its own weaknesses.

It's a bad-taste kids' adventure that welds the spirit of The Goonies and Stranger Things with Superbad and Booksmart...
August 13, 2019
The best and worst thing about this talk-dirty, feel-good attempt to be 'Superbad, Jr' is that it feels like it was written and directed by the 12-year-olds at its center.
August 12, 2019
This is a pre-teen movie that embraces its childishness at every turn.

Happily, Good Boys has a little more to recommend it than gross gags.

At this point, after Superbad and Booksmart, we've hit upon a formula: dorky, essentially sweet-natured kids getting into R-rated trouble scored to DJ Shadow's "Nobody Speak."

Good Boys is a good time.
March 13, 2019
A snappy comedy that pokes fun at those painful pubescent years and, by the credits, grows up into a somewhat mature comedy about friendship.
March 12, 2019
It's inconsistent, but also often very, very funny.
March 12, 2019
While the pace is spotty and not every joke lands, "Good Boys" manages to be adorable and twisted at the same time.
March 12, 2019
Good Boys has an endless fascination with hearing preteens curse. Is it funny the first and fourth and seventh time? Sure. Does the novelty wear off? A bit.
March 12, 2019
"Good Boys" is fast-paced and energetic, but its bad-taste humor seldom rises above the pedestrian.
