Beanbag boys
18 August 2019 | by slowen1205See all my reviews

After seeing a couple of different trailers and seeing the funny parts I was hoping that the best bits weren't just contained in the trailer like a lot of films now but I was pleasantly surprised that there was plenty of laughs in the film and it had the whole audience laughing.

People complaining that there is rude/crude references and drug references and slating the film because of if, it's 2019 and if you've never heard or seen any of these references before you must have been living under a rock and probably complained and asked for your money back at the cinema.

If you want a funny film with belly laughs and a film you can unwind and watch then this is the one for you. So far seen 72 films this year at the cinema and have to say this is the funniest one I've seen of the year so far and I'd go back and see it a second time.

Plenty of good scenes in the film but one of the favourites for me was the frat house scene but won't give anything away.

If you like funny films then give this a try and you won't be disappointed but if you watch songs of praise this film isn't for you as you probably won't like the rude references
