Good Boys was awkwardly funny. Like really funny. I was worried I was going to pee from laughing so hard, and I can’t RunPee during movies, since I have to get the Peetimes for the rest of you.
There were moments I found myself chastising my inability to hold in my laughter. They pushed the envelope as far as one can be pushed. What I found the funniest was the situations that the boys were getting into was totally over their heads. Them being so young and naive, coupled with the situation, was priceless.
People are screaming over how wrong this movie is. They were scandalized because of the characters being tweens. Sure, it’s not every day you watch little ones swearing like sailors or learning to kiss on a sex doll. But is it any worse than watching criminals kill cops, or a homeless girl turn to prostitution?

There will always be something scandalous on the big screen; that’s what fills the seats. Good Boys is rated R for a reason, folks. Don’t take little Suzy or Johnny; you’re not gonna want to answer their questions afterwards.
The Actors: the Best Part of Good Boys
The actual boys were terrific little actors. Each of them brought just a little bit more spark to the movie. If I were basing my grade on them, it’s an A all the way. My grade faltered a bit due to some gaps in the continuity. There were enough to distract me from completely enjoying the movie.
Good Boys would make a great date night movie, just as long as neither of you are an uptight type. Walk in expecting to see some raunchy jokes, lots of sex toys, and a plot based on drugs.
About The Peetimes: Good Boys is a really short movie, and they pack a lot of stuff into each scene, which makes finding Peetimes hard. I chose these 2 because they were easiest to sum up without losing a lot of punch. I’ll warn you though, there is humor in every scene, and I can’t duplicate that in a Peetime.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Good Boys. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (R) for strong crude sexual content, drug and alcohol material, and language throughout – all involving tweens

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 Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume III, Super Mario Bros. Movie, and coming soon Fast X, and The Little Mermaid 2023. 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.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.

I watched Good Boys on Sunday with my sister and had a great time. LOVED THIS. Laughed a whole lot — it was just what I needed.
But I can’t figure out what plot hole you mentioned. Just tell me here and say SPOILERS so people can skip it if they want. 🙂

I am so glad you enjoyed it!! These comments are dear to me, it feels really good knowing that you laughed and had a chance to space out for a bit. Doesn’t that make life flow smoother? I like to compare it to us recharging our batteries, like our phones.
So here is where I have to admit defeat. I see so many movies that my brain has zero capacity to retain anything longer than a day. I’m always searching for my keys and feel lucky if I can find my phone in under an hour. So your plot hole question has me stumped. I re-read my review hoping to jog my memory. Another brick wall inside my brain…
I looked it up and it’s on DVD now, so I’m going to rent it and watch it over again. This has become personal, I shall find the answer to your question and I’ll get back to you.
I wonder if I was laughing so hard that I may have missed something. So thank you very much for posing this question, not only will I solve a mystery but I’m going to laugh again. A lot.
Talk to you soon.
The girls paid $550 with their own money to buy the drone to give to them to get their molly back. Couldn’t they just use that $550 to go buy a ton of Molly?
