Movie Review – Beautiful Boy

Movie Review - Beautiful BoyBeing a retired nurse, I feel qualified to recommend this movie to anyone going through recovery, or any friend or family member who’s trying desperately to stand by their side.

Beautiful Boy succeeds —  where so many other have have failed — in showing the insanity of addiction. Never, at any time, did I feel that the ‘powers that be’ had ‘Hollywooded’-up this incredible film. (My family can attest to the fact that I do go just a little berserk when Hollywood has to go and add some bling to a truly great piece of history. Don’t get me started on the upcoming movie, Mary Queen Of Scots.)

What this movie showed, with great detail and honesty, is the bleak underbelly of addiction. It seems that Felix van Groeningen knew exactly how to reach the audience without going over the top.

Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet both gave an Oscar-winning performance. If they gave an award for Best Onscreen Couple, these two actors would win hands down, for sure. Carell is a phenomenal actor that can make your sides split in one movie, then make your heart break in the next. Carell’s performance seemed to come from his very soul. Each facial expression was a reflection of his pain.

Chalamet did a spectacular job of showing the highs and lows of his character’s addiction. This pair had such incredible chemistry that it made us believe everything they were feeling, and everything they were saying to each other, in their many one-on-one conversations. And when you hear David singing Beautiful Boy to Nic, your heart will break. It’s definitely a five Kleenex moment.

This app is the best wingman for a movie goer, especially when you have to go. It even has a vibrating timer that is spot on for those ‘go times’ some of us need! There are many other features that are wonderful. It even lets you know when the kill scenes are coming up for the people and animals for those who may have sensitivities to that type of content. The staff go above and beyond!

About The Peetimes: In a 2 hour movie, I like to get at least 3 Peetimes. Couldn’t do that in Beautiful Boy. The last half of the movie had so much drama and tension that should not be missed. If you do hear the call of nature, my suggestion is that you make a mad dash for the loo, and back to your seat in no longer than 2 minutes.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Beautiful Boy. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Twisters, Fly Me To The Moon, Despicable Me 4, A Quiet Place: Day One, Inside Out 2 and coming soon, Deadpool & Wolverien, Borderlands, Alien: Romulus and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.

  1. I’m glad you liked it, but it seems really sad. I’d probably leave crying.

    Oh yes, you would leave this movie crying I’m certain. When Steve Carell sang Beautiful Boy to his son, that was a 5 handkerchief moment.
