>> Rated: R for strong crude sexual content, drug and alcohol material, and language throughout, all involving tweens.
>> What it’s about: Three tweenage boy best friends try to navigate that precious middle school age of learning about sex, drugs and all the complicated aspects of adult life. The film “is a joke-dense and highly original coming-of-age tale that’s sweet and sour in all the best ways,” wrote critic Katie Walsh.
>> The kid attractor factor: Kids and teens may be drawn to the young stars and comedic genre.
>> Good lessons/bad lessons: Stick together, but learn to grow on your own.
>> Violence: A raucous brawl in a frat house, a perilous scene running through traffic.
>> Language: Strong language and swearing throughout.
>> Sexuality: Many often misinterpreted references to sex and sexuality. Graphic discussions, even though they don’t always get the details right.
>> Drugs: Frequent references to teenage drug use and drinking.
>> Parents advisory: Although the stars of this raunchy comedy are kids, it’s for teens and adults only.
