Kings of summer

Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts

Writer: Chris Galletta

Stars: Nick RobinsonGabriel BassoMoises Arias |See full cast and crew

Yes another predictable coming of age film arrived this year.

Teenage boy has family drama, boy runs away, boy realizes he is not yet grown and still needs family, boy runs home with tail between legs.

Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are my favorite real life comedian couple, the pair make a formidable duo and manage to create interesting characters.

Although this theme has been done before, or more accurately is done at least 20 times a year, Kings of summer offers a fresh comedic outlook on the coming of age genre with a burst of wit which is mainly due to Nick and Megans dry performances. Moises Arias is a solid contributor also.

It’s predictable and fumbles at the end but endearing when all is said and done.

5 out of 10.

  1. Nice review. While it wasn’t the best coming-of-ager that came out this past summer, it still had a nice amount of heart and fun to make you feel young, wild, and free all over again.
