Young Adult

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.
