| Film Synopsis |

Three sixth grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for their first kissing party.

| Video |

Universal’s 2.39:1 AVC HD image looks good from start to finish.  Shot using Arri Alexa cameras (at 3.4K) and finished at 2K for the home video release, the 2.39:1 framed Blu-ray looks exceptional. Colors are warm and natural looking. It's a good looking film on blu-ray disc.

| Audio |

Good Boys come on Blu-ray with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. Due to being a comedy, a majority of the mix is front-loaded. The dialogue is distinct and clear from the front channel.
