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.
Director: Gene Stupnitsky
Cast: Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon
Review: Jacob Tremblay proves he’s really good at goofy comedy and I’d love to see him do more like this. I also hope that Brady Noon and Keith L. Williams get a big boost from this flick. They’re both funny as hell and give it their all. Their dynamic is just as strong as Jonah Hill and Michael Cera’s in Superbad, even if the movie around them is a little choppier. I did notice some pretty jarring editing in the first third of the film. Stuff that was cutting back and forth wasn’t matching and the pacing felt a tad off, like things were missing and they were trying to blow past it. Nothing major, but it was something that I noticed.
Verdict: Worth the Popcorn
