Now for some Seth Rogen comedies (Long Shot) can be an acquired taste but at least you know that anything with his name attached is going to have jokes about sex and drugs and the Good Boys trailer is no different.
Jacob Tremblay stars as 12-year-old Max who is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) decide to use Max’s dad’s drone 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) gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of monumentally bad decisions involving stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and hunted by terrifying teenage girls whilst trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.
Gene Stupnitsky directs from a script he co-wrote with Lee Eisenberg which Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver are producing. This is Stupnitsky’s feature film debut having only directed a couple of episodes of the US version of The Office previously but in fairness the Good Boys trailer looks pretty funny.
It promises to be controversial but perhaps perhaps as controversial as when TMZ leaked photos of a stand in for Keith L. Williams wearing blackface makeup during production. Producer Seth Rogen stated “As soon as I was made aware of it, I ensured we put an end to it – and I give my word that on any project my team and I are involved in, we will take every precaution to make sure something similar does not take place again.
“Good Boys” is slated to hit cinemas in the UK & USA on August 16th.
