Did You Know?


The main conflict Lucas faces in the film is his parents' divorce. The bench that he runs into while fleeing from Lily, which causes him to fly off his bike into a bus and dislocate his shoulder, advertises divorce lawyers, to further show how divorce is hurting him (also note that the bus he flies into says "Airborne Delivery").

The Bean Bag Boys play Ascension: Deckbuilding Game. In order to make fast cash, they attempt to sell a rare and valuable card that they purchased a few years earlier in a random pack. Ascension does not sell random packs. It is made of a base game and preset expansion decks, thus making it impossible for rare cards to exist (outside of promos which are still not available in random packs), making this plot point impossible. Magic: The Gathering, however, is purchased by buying blind, random decks that may or may not include rare cards. See more »

Stand by Me meets Superbad
19 August 2019 | by DarkVulcan29See all my reviews

Figured I would go in this movie with low expectations, I thought was going to leave this film feeling the same I felt about Role Models(2008). And has I sat through this movie I found myself very entertained by it, the film proved to be an enjoyable misadventure after another. It never goes to overboard with the raunchiness, I believe it was cause the boys age, and the foul mouth dialogue said by boys in the movie has a funny realism to it unlike Role Models which was intent on shock value.

The boys make you forget there child actors and they feel real friends, and at no point they never come across has annoying, you simply enjoy and root for them all the way. Never takes itself too seriously at any point. It is simply a funny raunchy tale about coming of age. But I must say if you are easily offended, you should avoid this.
