From Universal Pictures comes a hilarious-looking new laffer from dynamic duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the duo behind “Superbad”, “Pineapple Express” and “Sausage Party”. Flick, featuring young everywhere-lad Jacob Tremblay (“Room”, “Wonder”), sounds like a unique blend of your traditional coming-of-age yarn and no-holds-barred shock comedy – think the aforesaid “Superbad” or Bob Shaye’s “Book of Love”.
“Good Boys”, says the presser, asks ‘just how bad can one day get?’.
After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room’s Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams, Fox’s The Last Man On Earth) decide to use Max’s dad’s drone – which Max is forbidden to touch – to spy (they think) on a teenage couple making out next door.
But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is destroyed. Desperate to replace it before Max’s dad (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth) gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and running from both the cops and terrifying teenage girls (Life of the Party’s Molly Gordon and Ocean’s Eight’s Midori Francis).
From Point Grey producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the writers of Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party, and James Weaver (Neighbors), Good Boys, from Universal Pictures and Good Universe, is written by the team of Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (NBC’s The Office, Bad Teacher). Eisenberg also produces and Stupnitsky directs.
Check out the first trailer above. “Good Boys” hits August 15.
