Seth Rogen has an innate thing lowly writers like me can only wish for.

The funny gene.

It’s an actual, scientific thing that automatically enables the host to be incredibly funny without even trying. Seriously, I’ve never known someone to say, ‘guys, let’s go sink a few cold brewskis’ and it be so amusing.

Is there somehow I can learn this trait? God knows my articles need some much-needed humour injected into them.

I digress: The creative minds behind SuperbadPineapple Express and Sausage Party – hands down the funniest film of all time, well, behind Good Boys that is (wink, wink) – are here to take on the sixth grade in the hilariously outrageous, coming-of-age comedy Good Boys.

And to whet your appetite for the rib-tickling new flick, we’ve got our hands on an exclusive clip.

Check it out:

Why is kids swearing infinitely more funny than adults swearing?

You love to hear it.

Now after watching the clip, you’re probably wondering what the film’s about.

I could tell you, but this official synopsis is here to do all the hard work for me!

What’s Good Boys about?

‘After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he does not know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends, Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams), decide to use Max’s dad’s drone, which they are forbidden to touch, to spy on a teenage couple who are making out.

But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is confiscated. Desperate to get it back before Max’s dad gets home, the boys skip school and set off an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and running from both the cops and terrifying teenage girls.’

I don’t know about you, but the prospect of a ‘kissing party’ at the age of eleven sounds like the stuff of nightmares. Despite practicing on my own hand for weeks, I massively cocked up my first kiss – bit her tongue and made it bleed and everything.

Hopefully Max will deal with the pressure a lot better than I did…

Good Boys is written and directed by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky (The Office, Bad Teacher) with help from Point Grey producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver.

The film’s adult cast members including Stephen Merchant (The Office), Will Forte, Retta (Parks and Recreation), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), and Sam Richardson (Veep).

You can cast your peepers on the film when it debuts in theatres on August 16th.

Someone just made themselves some Friday night plans!
