Sure, it might not be the most original take on the coming-of-age story (Jonah Hill even admitted it is a movie built on tropes), but what makes it unique is the chemistry and exuberance shared between the 5 boys. It's also irreverent AF, which feels incredibly refreshing.
The easy comparison would be The Sandlot, a nostalgic tale of friendship formed over a shared passion, but this has a deeper emotional layer that feels at times like Short Term 12 (and also like that movie, I predict we'll look back at Mid90s in 5 years and realize this too was a breakout platform for numerous stars).
