AdjectiveEdit

uproarious (comparative more uproarious, superlative most uproarious)

    • 2019 August 14, A. A. Dowd, “Good Boys puts a tween spin on the R-rated teen comedy, to mostly funny effect”, in The A.V. Club[1]:
      Yet as with Booksmart, the summer’s earlier riff on that Apatovian classic, there are times when Good Boys feels a little too nice to actually be uproarious. In more ways than one, it’s the training wheels for a better comedy—a slightly edgier and funnier one.
