Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon), and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) are typical adolescents, sharing misinformation and misadventures. When cool kid Soren (Izaac Wang) invites Max to his party, Max asks if his two best friends can come. Soren reluctantly agrees, but clearly the other kids at school think Thor and Lucas are misfits.

Knowing the big party will include girls, the three friends plan to prove they belong in the cool crowd by learning how to kiss. They use a drone to spy on Max's teenage neighbor Hannah (Molly Gordon), whom he describes as a nymphomaniac. However, when she takes down their drone with a pool net, in retaliation they steal her purse, hoping to trade it for the drone. What they didn't bargain on was Hannah's level of anger when she realizes they have her purse, which contains her stash of drugs, so the boys go on the run, getting into more and more trouble along the way.

  • 5 stars "Did the haters watch the traiel or just go to a movie they know nothing about one of the biggest box office movies of the summer need I say more"
  • 1 star "Nothing funny whatsoever about 6th graders talking and acting this way. Something is so foul about a movie that little kids can act in but aren't allowed to actually go see in a theater in person. (R-Rating). You know that kids are for sure gonna go see this because it is a movie about kids their age. We are dropping the ball on parenting and don't even know it, if this is considered funny or entertainment. I protest this movie values."
  • 4 stars "The most controversial film of the Summer and the second biggest box office hit. Love it or hate it it is a window into the world of 6th grade in 2019 America. This is not the America where most of us grew up in - in this comedy it is a multi-cultural world of drones, potheads, bad language and the kids are a night mare from the 1930's 30 rascals to the lost boys of 2019. Even the look is kind of creepy with mean Gary Coleman character leering back at you and yet, strangely enough it works at times and you can't help but keep watching. This film is just too raw to be reviewed in 2019. It will have to be set aside a decade or so to truly rate it. When the Bad News Bears came out in the 70's many people were horrified but by the 80's it was truly beloved. Expect people to be firmly divided on this picture which is it's draw- people want to see the film that is either getting the 4 stars or the 1 star. The controversy could have only been greater if these actors were retelling The Rocky Horror Picture Show."
