Good Boys - Nothing for little boys

Film plot and background

Comedy about three students who skip school from one misery to the next - and all the trouble just to look cool at a party.

The three sixth graders Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) want to prove how cool and grown up they are and are already looking forward to the upcoming party of a classmate. The program item “Spin the bottle” and possibly the kiss with a girl panics Max in particular, as he is absolutely inexperienced in this area.

So the three friends decide to use Max ‘father's drone - who of course has forbidden the boys to play with it - to spy on the neighborhood and watch a teenage couple make out. However, the plan backfires and the drone is pulled in by a few girls.

To get the drone back, Max, Thor and Lucas skip school and stumble from one wrong decision to the next. In the meantime, they are on the road with drugs in their luggage, get caught in a student paintball tournament and are soon not only being followed by a group of teenage girls, but also by the police.

  • Good Boys - Nothing for little boys review

    Good Boys - Nothing for little boys: Comedy about three students who skip school who get from one misery to the next - and all the trouble just to look cool at a party.

    Comedy in which three sixth graders want to prove that they have almost outgrown and want to learn something about girls and sex - with turbulent effects. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, among others, are the producers behind the exuberant story that "Highligen Three Kings" sent on the "Pineapple Express" trip at a young age. Gene Stupnitsky, author and director of "The Office", is making his feature film debut.
