A Hilarious, Well Made Coming-Of-Age Film

This movie is not only hilarious and extremely clever, the positive messages and role models way overhaul any bad messages in this movie. If anything, it's just realistic. There is some, not a lot, but some swearing. There's drinking, mention of masturbation, and a whole ton of interest in girls. But there's nothing in this movie any more vulgar than what teenagers are hearing in school every day, and I honestly think it would be appropriate for anyone over the age of 13. The "overbearing parents" in this movie are actually, literally overbearing, and don't just give kids unrealistic ideas of what a parent should do. It's a hilarious coming of age movie with incredible writing and characters that are real and relatable and really good people to look up to or learn from their mistakes. It will certainly spark smart conversation among friends and family alike.

Underrated Brilliance

This movie totally surpassed my expectations. It has deep routed meanings and LOADS of symbolism that is extremely worthwhile talking to your kids about. (Example: The house they created representing their friendship). The acting was amazing. This movie is extremely similar to "Stand By Me" (Also one of my personal favourites) but a little more action packed. Although it is still slow at some parts so you just need to keep in mind if you or your kid can appreciate this type of chill movies. There is some violence and not much mention of sex. This movie is also very atmospheric and yes, made me cry. Overall it's an amazing movie that can give more good messages than bad.
