In the upcoming raunchy comedy Good Boys, the movie’s Bean Bag Boys (Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams) are dealing with your average childhood problems: learning how to kiss, playground bullies, getting rid of drugs, and stealing beer. You know, just your normal day in the life of three foul-mouthed middle schoolers. But the three titular good boys are going to learn that no matter how crazy their day can be, they can get through it as long as they have friends — a concept that Universal is leaning on with their “Wednesday Friendsay” advance screening of the Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg-produced comedy. Watch the red band Good Boys clips below.

The raunchy side of comedy is usually reserved for the likes of high school and college. But the next generation is growing up faster and faster these days, and kids in middle school can be total jerks. That’s why we’re not surprised that Superbad writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have taken a nasty dive into adolescence by producing the R-rated comedy Good Boys. And it’s clear that the movie’s Bean Bag Boys (Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams) are not ready for everything growing up has to offer, especially when it involves, drugs, parties, and totally misunderstanding sex. Read More »
A live-action Disney remake of the 1989 film The Little Mermaid is inevitable. And since the studio’s track record with similar remakes of its animated classics is financially successful but creatively questionable, it’s frankly a bit hard to get genuinely excited about individual pieces of casting for future entries.
There are exceptions, of course: the entire cast of Jon Favreau’s The Lion King seems pretty perfect for their roles. And now The Little Mermaid may have joined its ranks by hooking two young actors for supporting roles: Jacob Tremblay (Room, The Predator) and Awkwafina (Ocean’s Eight, The Farewell). Read More »
Good Boys is bringing the raunch comedy down to Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams‘ level…which is about 4 and a half feet? But size isn’t an indication of humor, because the pint-sized middle schoolers of the SXSW hit have plenty of outrageously inappropriate jokes to share in the official new Good Boys trailer. Watch it below.

Charlie Chaplin‘s 1921 silent film classic The Kid is getting the remake treatment. That information alone is unexpected, but brace yourselves, because that’s just the beginning.

There is, despite countless American Pie and Road Trip spin-offs arguing otherwise, an art to shaping R-rated comedies. Rawdog raunchiness and “F-bombs” alone don’t equate to laugh-a-minute genius.
Take a movie like Good Boys. Gene Stupnitsky’s hilarious adolescent comicality boasts heart, message, and humor in the precisely right places. Lesser creators would’ve leaned heavily on cursing “tweens” thinking with their pre-pubescent naughty parts, yet Stupnitsky and co-writer Lee Eisenberg dare to focus on a heartwarming story about coming of age with sixth-grade understanding, and then fill in the anecdotal kinky playthings and pornography gags.

The Predator is in theaters this weekend, and even though it’s not faring too well among critics, yours truly found it to be a truly enjoyable, bloody, pulpy, action-packed extravaganza with the perfect amount of Shane Black‘s signature humor and an outstanding ensemble cast to bring it all together.
