Two friends decide to let loose and have fun on their last night before graduation
Two best friend decide to let loose in ‘Booksmart’
I have seen a number of coming of age comedies. Can’t Hardly Wait had a great cast and was a ton of fun to watch. Easy A was a bit different but I also thoroughly enjoyed it. I heard mixed things about Booksmart but I decided to give it a chance. I was able to get a review copy and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Booksmart here:
In this fresh, unfiltered modern comedy, best friends and academic overachievers Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) realize 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.
I didn’t like Booksmart that much. The story started off pretty slow and took a good while to get interesting. As far as coming of age stories go, this one was just weak. These two characters were so socially awkward that it was hard to watch at times. Some people may like this movie but I wouldn’t recommend it.
