Good Boys

Good Boys ★★★½

First we had Superbad, then we got Booksmart, and now we have Good Boys. What makes this movie enjoyable is the age of the kids. The three main characters have the perfect blend of naivete and bravado that is appropriate for a trio of sixth graders who are navigating their first encounters with sex/relationships, and drugs/alcohol. The movie obviously pushes the boundaries on these themes to the extreme, but the pure innocence of these kids gives a fresh and relatable take on the coming-of-age trope.
