OK but thoroughly modern indie teen graduation film - Booksmart review by EP

Spoiler Alert
07/11/2019

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.

Good - Booksmart review by KB

Spoiler Alert
14/10/2019

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.

A smart, ultra-fresh take on the high school comedy - Booksmart review by IR

Spoiler Alert
10/03/2020

Love this. Razor-sharp script, lovingly delivered with real pathos and style by the two leads and by every fully fleshed out supporting character.

Do we truly need yet another coming of age high school story? Yes we do, it seems, when it has this much to say about friendship, pre-judging, righteousness and all that pent up teenage angst.

I starting laughing within the first 15 seconds and basically didn't stop.

Comic drama - Booksmart review by HM

Spoiler Alert
10/03/2020

Girl buddies movie. Endearing, witty and just plain daft. Goes out of its way to entertain with some silly characters. However, it never gives the impression of leaving reality behind so that you lose empathy with the characters. One you can watch with your partner (maybe not Grannie) safely!

Two college girls feel they have missed the racy side of college life so set about a pre-graduation day spree; if only they can find the 'big' party the in-crowd are going to. During the search they discover things about themselves and other people, so gain valuable lessons on life.

Leaves you with a glow that the human race is OK really, maybe a bit gooey. Recommended as a good drama, comedy, life reaffirming movie
