    Nothing gels, the characters don't come together and the entire movie is built on a thin premise that can't last more than 10 minutes. The so called comedy is lazy and comes across as forced, especially from the father. The Kings of Summer accompanied by weird and pointless music, is a terrible film.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. No vi comedia, solo 3 chicos repitiendo la historia de reencontrarse y darse cuenta de que irse de la casa esta mal, debería estar en otra categoría. Expand

    The director's background in online shorts manifests itself in an occasional, montage-heavy scattiness, and the broadly conventional closing act can't quite maintain the laugh rate, but there's a lot of warm-hearted and commendably daft business along the way.

    Vogt-Roberts manages the neat trick of making his film feel both nostalgic and current.

    A gorgeous, amusing ode to the pleasures of stretching your wings a little.
