Goofs

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 »

Annabelle: I know what cocaine is.
Max: Annabelle! Get the fuck out of here! Beanbag boys only, you little shit! Annabelle's been watching Dateline. She now knows what cocaine is.
Annabelle: Hi.
Max: Oh, my god!
Thor: What the fuck?
Annabelle: Let me a beanbag boy. I'll grow a tiny penis like Thor's.
Thor: Mom!

The movie delivered what it meant to deliver
21 August 2019 | by teoandreea-07655See all my reviews

I can see that most of the bad reviews target the "normalisation" of such an "outrageous" teen behaviour; I understand why it can be debatable, but this is a comedy and gives a comedic spin to a subject that (weather parents like it or not) all teens are experiencing: awkward curiosity and transition to sexual/romantic/gender interest. And, an important aspect: it is clearly advertised for 15+ audience.

Yes, it was cliche; it didn't present any innovative screenplay, some jokes were obviously hyperbolised, but: it was actually a hilarious film. The comedic experience and overall journey throughout the movie was well written; the acting was good; the bond between the 3 bin bags members was quite well portrayed. I like that it carried also a message about friendship; the cast was well selected and diverse; the main characters were actually very strongly individualised which I think gave a big plus to the "glue" of the story. Overall I would recommended for a fun trip to the cinema, but definatelly not a movie for a more conservative taste in comedies.
