What the Critics say

24.com
Ilan Preskovsky quote iconIt’s made with real skill and doesn’t allow its crude humour to overtake its fundamental sweetness, but, most importantly, it made me laugh all the way through it. And if that isn’t a sign of a good comedy, I don’t know what is.

Leon van Nierop quote iconGOOD BOYS is meer kru as enigiets wat jy agterop ‘n toiletdeur sal aantref. Dit is ‘n moedswillige vulgêre, weerbarstige en onthutsende stuk stuitigheid, wat uit ‘n volwasse oogpunt grynslag oor 12-jarige kinders wat te gou grootword.

Tomatometer quote iconood Boys is undermined by an eagerness to repeatedly indulge in profane humor, but its appealing cast and ultimately thoughtful message often shine through.

Jeffrey M. Anderson quote iconExceedingly raunchy comedy has heart, but it’s not for kids.

T. Durgin quote iconThis is a funny, entertaining late-summer sleeper … for anyone BUT the 12-year-olds starring in this flick!
