    Spoilers below:

    The film follows actor DiCaprio and stunt double/gofer Pitt through a decline phase in their relative careers. Pitt intersects with the Manson Family, while Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski move in next door to DiCaprio. Eventually the world's collide, but instead of invading the Polanski house, an alternate history has them invading DiCaprio's place and getting their asses handed to them by a stoned Pitt and his dog.

    The production rhymes with Tarantino's other work, as well as having his usual nods to entertainment history. The ending shot is straight out of The Player. And stick around through the credits for a nice little Easter egg.

    All in all, very well done.
    Only thing I didn’t like was Major Dick Winters as Steve McQueen.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    I watched it and it was funny. I think it it were 3 teen girls it would still be funny.

    And I'm fine with movies that pander to a specific audience.

    I saw it. Was pretty unimpressed. Interesting concept... shock humor with tweens talking sex and drugs. But it just wasn't funny.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    It’s frustrating that movie’s like “Good Boys” do so well at this box office, while movies like “Booksmart” and “Blinded By The Light” do so poorly.

    Sure. If they are good. If they are doing something fresh. I really thought the way they were trying to get rid of horny teen males and avoid turning them into entitled toxic males that this type of movie would not be made. Whatever makes money.

    Midsommar looks like a movie worth seeing. Sure it looks like Wicker Man. Not the horrible Cage version.
    But the director is good.

    Who is they?

    Haven't seen Good Boys yet, but Superbad is super good, and a personal favorite. I do prefer Adventureland over it, though.

    They as in who decided to make Good Boys. I’m not expecting Dr. Zhivago here but most of what I have seen of this it makes Momma’s Boy look like The Grapes of Wrath.

    You are right. I forgot about Superbad. It was a good comedy that dealt with high school teen anxiety very well.

    Thinking back to that movie depresses me now. That was TWELVE years ago. 2007 was one of the best years ever for film.

    Good Boys is at 79% with critics and 87% with the audience at Rotten Tomatoes. Generally, that's a good sign. Will have to check it out.
