In this fresh, unfiltered modern comedy, best friends and academic overachievers Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) realise they've missed out on pretty much all fun during high school. So, on the eve of graduation, they decide to make up for lost time with one wild adventure in this hilarious coming-of-age story about the meaningful bonds we create, also starring Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis.
Overall i enjoyed this. It's more than a teen comedy . Like a mix of an indie film & mainstream film it's a bit offbeat & gets better & more amusing as it goes along.

OK but thoroughly modern indie teen graduation film
- Booksmart review by EP
This is a film about 2 girls who think that they have lost out on all the fun at school by working really hard and so decide to join the cooler crazier kids for one night before graduation.
It is pretty good, feels more like an indie film and a modern take on the 80s teen film genre although it all felt too politically correct to me and this tone prevails throughout. Don't get me wrong, there are some funny parts and good performances, I just don't think I am target audience. I liked it as the girls are nerds and they ultimately gain the support of their classmates after some funny exploits. There are some other quite amusing characters which evolve with the film too other than the 2 main parts.
Not terrible at all, just not great in my opinion.
