One day, 12-year-old Max (Jacob Tremblay) gets invited by the cool kids to a kissing party. Panicked because he doesn’t know how to kiss, he enlists the help of two of his friends, Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams), to help him uncover the mystery of kissing. After online research proves to be unproductive, they decide to take the drone owned by Max’s father (Will Forte) in order to spy on the neighboring teens. When the drone unexpectedly crashes, the boys are thrust into an adventure. Directed by Gene Stupnitsky.
This R-rated comedy is about a trio of tweens (Room and The Predator's Jacob Tremblay, Last Man on Earth's Keith L. Williams, and Brady Noon) who want to learn how to kiss for an upcoming party. The kids are naive and their attempts to learn land them in a series of increasingly insane situations. And I loved it.
The movie is insanely funny. Joke after joke lands. I haven't laughed so much during a movie in a long, long time.
The three leads are all distinctive and likable. The actors do an excellent job. The entire cast is strong.
They do try a little too hard at points to push the boundaries of what you can do with children in a movie. There is one scene that is especially uncomfortable. I'm not trying to censor, but ask yourself: how far is too far?
The film has a good ending, but I felt a few parts could've been edited down. The film runs briskly at an hour and a half. Part of strength is it pacing, jumping constantly from situation to situation without driving a joke to death. However, you expect things to slow down once you reach the wrap up.
Unless you feel uncomfortable with children in some pretty mature situations, I highly recommend this.
This had to be one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while. My husband and I laughed almost the entire movie. These boys reminded me of almost ever boy I went to school with in middle school and my husband completely agreed. Their logic and thought process really takes you back to your younger years. Great movie to see if you're feeling down and need a good laugh. I would even consider purchasing this movie just to have it around whenever want to reminisce and laugh
