Goofs

The Bean Bag Boys play Ascension: Deckbuilding Game. In order to make fast cash, they attempt to sell a rare and valuable card that they purchased a few years earlier in a random pack. Ascension does not sell random packs. It is made of a base game and preset expansion decks, thus making it impossible for rare cards to exist (outside of promos which are still not available in random packs), making this plot point impossible. Magic: The Gathering, however, is purchased by buying blind, random decks that may or may not include rare cards. See more »

Interesting Bildungsroman Film
30 October 2019 | by samyoung-82648See all my reviews

The good: This film takes a risk. It shows three boys learning about the world as they transition into their teens. There are some very funny moments. Also, there is very little political correctness in this movie which is as rare has hen's teeth in modern Hollywood.

The average: The film relies too much on bad language, drugs and sex to tell the story. It's really unnecessary and doesn't add much to the story other than a few laughs.

The bad: This movie could be used to help young boys understand the world around them and that it's ok to challenge your boundaries. Sadly, this movie can't fulfil that role because the film was made as an r rated movie. Also, it spends too much time on smut, vulgarity and illicit substances for no benefit.

Despite giving the film an 8/10 I would be far more likely to recommend Stand by Me. Good Boys took a risk and I think it paid off for sheer entertainment. However, it could have been so much more, especially in our age of mandated political correctness. We could really do with a risque movie for young boys that is free of Hollywoodisms. This movie is so close, yet so far.
