I can see what this movie was trying to do - a bright, fun and
feel-good smart movie about a group of "nerds" graduating high school,
who want to make up for all the experiences they missed in high school
before they go to their respective ivy league colleges. Unfortunately,
instead you got a 20% there movie that made me cringe more than it made
The characters were two dimensional, at best. It focused primarily on the least interesting character - in an attempt to give him some depth maybe? The two other guys, Lion and Spice, were completely overlooked - despite the fact that they both had a lot more potential than the main guy. As for the girl, her primarily role was that of a "woah she's actually hot!" nerd-girl-who-takes-her-glasses off. The plot was predictable, riddled with unrealistic and unnecessary moments, the dialogue didn't do anything. Most scenes were either cut too short for anything to be developed, or developed so far that it wasn't even satirical or funny; it was just overkill.
"Good kids" treads on the coming-of-age, feel-good youth high school movie - only without any nuance, any likable characters, any ability to resonate with an audience.
Four high school students look to redefine themselves after graduation.
