Synopsis

Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon), and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) are typical adolescents, sharing misinformation and misadventures. When cool kid Soren (Izaac Wang) invites Max to his party, Max asks if his two best friends can come. Soren reluctantly agrees, but clearly the other kids at school think Thor and Lucas are misfits.

Knowing the big party will include girls, the three friends plan to prove they belong in the cool crowd by learning how to kiss. They use a drone to spy on Max's teenage neighbor Hannah (Molly Gordon), whom he describes as a nymphomaniac. However, when she takes down their drone with a pool net, in retaliation they steal her purse, hoping to trade it for the drone. What they didn't bargain on was Hannah's level of anger when she realizes they have her purse, which contains her stash of drugs, so the boys go on the run, getting into more and more trouble along the way.

  • 1 star "Sophomoric would giving this movie too much gravitas. It's a movie about 6th graders who want to learn how to kiss. There is virtually no plot, no point. It is rated R for language and the occasional sex toy. I went with a friend but if had just been me I would have left and caught an early dinner. It will be on TBS soon enough. Watch it over your shoulder while doing the dishes. That would be plenty."
  • 4 stars "Funny film but hopefully next time they will find better actors to play alongside Jacob Tremblay - especially the kid who looks like an evil version of Gary Coleman. Pushing limits is what makes this film funny but the pushing limits in the language area was not the best way to go as it was like a joke told too many times. Fortunately, there will be a chance for them to get it right as a sequel is on the way. 7th grade will certaintly be better than 6th grade next time around."
  • 1 star "Why would anyone allow children to play in a R rated movie that are not even old enough to go see it after it's done.. Just sexual exploration of children"
