    My one-word, capitalized review of Booksmart is RELATABLE! You won't be surprised to read, I imagine, that I was academically-focused in school, and not so great with the social interactions. The story of these two girls, who feel like they wasted their youth studying and who embark on a Superbad-type graduation's eve night of partying to catch themselves up, may be told from a completely different generation than mine's point of view, but the feelings behind it are pretty universal. I don't even think the relatability is limited to bookworms or teens. Some of the moments I felt best resonated with me happened in college, or as an adult, perhaps even in the last few years. Regret, social anxiety, unfairness, these are themes that stay with us. As a comedy, Booksmart has a little of everything. Amusing characters, a bit of gross-out humor (but only a bit), smart dialog, truthful observations, fun directorial bears courtesy of Olivia Wilde, completely absurd moments, and at the center of it all, a lovely friendship with a lot of heart. I would be totally into catching up with Molly and Amy in college if the right story were to come up. They're my people. 2 weeks 5 days ago

    It's Superbad with females, even replaying a couple of moments and plot points. Saying that, it's extremely entertaining and may be funnier than Superbad. 3 weeks ago
