Storyline

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

You can't go into this movie taking it seriously cause it doesn't take itself seriously. It's 90 minutes of dumb fun and that's it.
