Goofs

The Bean Bag Boys play Ascension: Deckbuilding Game. In order to make fast cash, they attempt to sell a rare and valuable card that they purchased a few years earlier in a random pack. Ascension does not sell random packs. It is made of a base game and preset expansion decks, thus making it impossible for rare cards to exist (outside of promos which are still not available in random packs), making this plot point impossible. Magic: The Gathering, however, is purchased by buying blind, random decks that may or may not include rare cards. See more »

Great comedy
21 August 2019 | by masonsaulSee all my reviews

Good Boys is a great comedy that's surprisingly emotional and consistently funny throughout and at times laugh out loud funny. Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams and Brady Noon give great performances and have fantastic chemistry. However, it has some predictable moments due to it's similarities to other films, especially Superbad.
