It brings me no pleasure to tell you how disappointing Young Adult is.
Who doesn’t love Charlize Theron?
And the Mr. Mudd people, I know them and applaud what they do.
It is a fantastic story idea.
There was barely a true note in it.
Of course, if you know that going in, that it’s a great idea poorly executed and you just want to see them all do this thing then I say go for it.
(Note: I was not a big fan of Diablo Cody’s Juno, either.)
There is a brilliant switch of point of view toward the end, which is pretty refreshing and a great way to hinge a film. But then the roll out, too, is also unbelievable.
Oh well. It’s just a movie.
