Invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max asks his best friends Lucas and Thor for some much-needed help on how to pucker up. When they hit a dead end, Max decides to use his father's drone to spy on the teenage girls next door. When the boys lose the drone, they skip school and hatch a plan to retrieve it before Max's dad can figure out what happened. Written by krmanirethnam

Meh. Amusing, but not amazing.
4 April 2020 | by mikoyan-51104See all my reviews

It's a coming of age comedy movie with - slight original twist - tweens. It's mostly good fun, but certainly not laugh out funny. However, it didn't make much sense, unlike the likes of the classic Superbad, the more recent Booksmart, or what not. Recommended for a very light evening.
