There are many lessons to be learned from Good Boys that can be applied to everyday life. Things like, how to cross the road, how to talk to police officers, how to buy and offload drugs and how to use sex toys in as many ways as possible that don’t involve sex. Importantly, all these lessons are geared at sixth graders so they’re easy and hilarious for everyone to understand.
It’s a bit confronting coming into a film which essentially markets itself as Superbad but where the kids are even younger. I was worried everything was just going to be too gross and inappropriate. I didn’t want to sit through a film, watching minors do uncomfortably adult things. Thankfully, Good Boys has a decent mix of Booksmart-style wholesomeness which keeps it from getting too weird.
