Trivia

In an interview, Jonah Hill admitted that he was afraid he would accused of being bigoted because of the repeated use of words like f*****t throughout the film and considered a shooting a scene where the kids debate over whether they should be using that kind of language. He showed the scene to producer Scott Rudin, who asked, "Would you guys have had this conversation back then?" When Jonah said no, Rudin said that the scene would be "more offensive to put that in the movie than to show it how it actually was." See more »

Embrace the nostalgia / cliches
13 September 2018 | by jsph_calabreseSee all my reviews

Sure, it might not be the most original take on the coming-of-age story (Jonah Hill even admitted it is a movie built on tropes), but what makes it unique is the chemistry and exuberance shared between the 5 boys. It's also irreverent AF, which feels incredibly refreshing.

The easy comparison would be The Sandlot, a nostalgic tale of friendship formed over a shared passion, but this has a deeper emotional layer that feels at times like Short Term 12 (and also like that movie, I predict we'll look back at Mid90s in 5 years and realize this too was a breakout platform for numerous stars).
