SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
High school sophomores Ben (Tye Sheridan), Carter (Logan Miller), and Augie (Joey Morgan) are best friends and apparently the only Scouts (a thinly-veiled version of the Boy Scouts) in their school. Augie is a pudgy nerd who takes the Scouts seriously and is about to be made a Condor by Scout Leader Rogers (David Koechner) during an overnight camping trip. Carter wants to ditch the Scouts and get laid -- starting with ditching Augie during the camping trip and going to the senior secret party. Ben is the level-headed one of the trio, trying to keep the peace with both of them; he also has a crush on Carter's sister Kendall (Halston Sage), a senior with a jerk of a boyfriend.
I didn't laugh once during Scouts Guide to the Apocalypse, which is pretty bad for a comedy, and most movies in general. (The movie also wastes the comic talents of David Koechner and Cloris Leachman.) This is simply a unfunny, uncreative, terrible movie.
