Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Are Going Back to Sixth Grade in ‘Good Boys’

Universal on Tuesday released the first trailer for the Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg comedy Good Boys, an R-rated adventure starring a bunch of tweens.

Judging from the film’s first trailer — which opens with Rogen telling his pre-teen stars that they’re too young even to watch the movie they worked on — the duo known for high-performing frat boy comedies like Neighbors and Pineapple Express are going for the R-rated gusto.

Max, Lucas, and Thor (Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, and Brady Noon) are just trying to gather some intel on how to kiss when Max’s father’s drone is captured by two vengeful high school girls. What begins as a plan to retrieve the drone before his Dad gets home turns into a city-wide adventure involving some ticked-off cops, a bag of molly, a bunch of frat dudes, and a whole lot of bad decisions. Think a mixture between Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Superbad, only with a bunch of kids whose balls haven’t dropped, and you’re in the right headspace.

As you might expect, a Rogen-Goldberg flick brings with a host of comedy talent like Last Man on Earth’s Will Forte, Get Out’s Lil Rel Howery, Parks and Recreation’s (and Twitter’s) Retta, and Richard Splett himself, Sam Richardson.

Written by comedy mainstays Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (with Stupnitsky directing in his feature debut), Good Boys promises to be well worth two hours for anyone yet to tire of Rogen’s low-brow shenanigans (and you can count this couch potato firmly in that crowd). At the very least, the film’s first trailer is absolutely worth three minutes of your morning.

Trust me.

Good Boys hits theaters August 16.
