Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
An ‘R’ rated teen comedy, Good Boys has received a fair share of mixed reviews and I can kinda see why. Yup it’s funny, yup its crude and yup at times it’s even pretty charming. But also it’s lowest common denominator humour and for sure in a post #metoo world it may not be the best timed release. But in the same way that American Pie pushed boundaries in the 90’s Good Boys does here and oddly for the most part its gender politics are far more interesting than some may give it credit for. Best bet here is don’t do a Kermode… watch it and make up your own mind.
Best Bit: An-al beads?
