Yeah, sure it has tons of language and sexual references, but at this age it’s common.
I’ll make myself clear, this is one of the darkest “kid” films I’ve seen so far. I know that this is classified as the teen movie genre, however some of the actors are known with Nickelodeon and all of that. Anyways, let’s begin:
The message is fantastic, it shows that even if you have nothing on common with someone that doesn't mean you can't be friends. The protagonists in this movie have some terrible pasts, one of the characters has severe PTSD while another is a juvenile deliquent. Some of the swearing (that I'll agree with) is quite unnecessary, but in certain context it just makes the movie a lot funnier. Sure, you get Straight Outta Compton playing on a tape in a car, but its a great song though. I honestly except this behavior of Benjamin Flores Jr., the kid has starred in a lot of Nickelodeon shows and movies, and this movie really shows a lot of the actors true colors.
This movie in genre is basically a ”teens save the world” type of movie. But, this is a really well done one, a lot of us laughed during the movie. Oh, and by the way, one character gets slashed in the stomach, but not deep enough though.
Don't show this to younger kids though.
