Highly Suspect Reviews: Good Boys

Good Boys Movie Review


Oh no, Jacob Tremblay is growing up! Playing 12-year-old Max, he’s deeply freaked out about being invited to a ‘kissing party’ (how come they didn’t have those when I was in Middle School?) as he doesn’t know how to kiss. His best friends help him out by using his dad’s drone to spy on a lip-mashing teenage couple. But things go wrong, the drone is confiscated, and the three kids go on a crazy adventure. As you do. Ben, Kim, and one of our new HSR critics, Mike Murphy, are on the mic for this one. Let’s see how much they identify with this bildungsroman (look it up).


DIRECTED BY: Gene Stupnitsky

STARRING: Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, Keith L. Williams, Will Forte, Molly Gordon, Lil Rel Howery, Sam Richardson, Retta, Millie Davis, Benita Ha, Michaela Watkins, Lee Eisenberg, Stephen Merchant
