Not what it was cracked up to be - humour fell a little flat.
Verified purchase
Was really looking forward to watching this, but was left disappointed. There is absolutely no character development, so you’re left struggling to feel any connection to the characters. The kids were cute and the script had it’s funny moments, but it was simply written in a manner that wasn’t believable. Kids just don’t speak that way... The time line was also a little jumpy and the humour fell flat more often than not - a real shame.
If you just want something on in the background or fancy a REALLY easy watch, then this if for you. I’d wait until it’s released on one of the streaming platforms though as it’s not worth the current £1.99 rental fee.

A hilarious and charming comedy
Verified purchase
This really could be a prequel to Superbad, it's that good. I have no idea why this film isn't more well known.

The 3 leads are brilliant, all with their own arcs and quirks. I grew up in Scotland so you'd think this film wouldn't resonate with me but I remember forcing myself to sip White Lightening cider and hating every drop...but it was the desperate need to be grown up and having no idea what that meant. The mystique of old kids in the late teens and early 20's is captured wonderfully here but also exposed for the reality of them being just older kids with their own silly ideas.

Anyway, ignore the negative reviews and give it a go, I was honestly surprised.

Generally okay, but a bit of a let down.

I was expecting more from this in all honesty - all the best bits are in the trailer and the rest is just filler. It has less moments of laugh out loud physical comedy than other films of the same ilk - the only one I can actually remember is where one of the kids crashes into a van and emerges with a dislocated shoulder ‘ah, hell no!’ But again, this is already in the trailer... There is a better film in here waiting to get out. Glad I watched it if only because otherwise I’d have wondered if I’d missed out. 90 minutes not exactly well-spent.

Tween Trouble
Verified purchase
A film that owes it's sucsess to its three main leads who stumble through the adult script with prepubescent charm. The material may exclude a young audience but the general coming of age theme of exploration, disappointment and confusion is a well worn path, handled here with skittish humour in Gene Stupinskys inimitable style, which should resonate with males of any age. Humour aside, there is a defining theme of the fragility of adolescent friendship and the consequence of actions within the family and, more importantly with those we call our true friends.

An all round good time!

If you’re going into this movie expecting some kind of masterpiece or comedic genius, you’re going to be disappointed.

The film is funny, absolutely, but this isn’t a film that’s supposed to be taken too seriously. It’s slapstick humour and although the comedy can fall flat at moments, the movie uses these young actors to its advantage. Of course it wouldn’t be nearly as funny using the same skits with adult actors, thus using the younger lads to its advantage (sexual references etc...)

The actors done a great job, although Jacob Tremblay, I truly believe is one to keep your eye on for the future, that kid is going places.

If you’re into silly humour and don’t have the personality of a wet onion, the movie can be quite enjoyable. 4/5 for me

Hilarious and heart-warming
Verified purchase
It's a hilarious movie, and quite bold. Normally they'd have the kids be in their mid-to-late teens, and played by 20-somethings. Here, the comedy is just as mischievous, yet the kids are so tiny and adorable. They all have amazing talent too, and the comedic timing is amazing throughout. Plenty of burst-out-laughing, hysterical moments.

Funny film !

Lockdown birthday movie night for a pre-teen!
There are some cringy places in this film if you are watching with your children but all in all a really funny film which made us really laugh out loud as a family.
Looking forwarding to watching this again which is always a good sign.

Exactly what I wanted it to be

Great film, a must-watch if you like out there comedy. The fact it's 3 kids makes this even funnier. I see other reviews saying "kids don't act like this" man some people need to get a life and unwind for an hour and half. Ignore the low star reviews it's people who just like to moan and not actually understand movies. WATCH IT!!
