Booksmart (2019)

Although I wasn’t fully onboard with the movie and what it set out to accomplish, I applaud the efforts of Kaitlyn Dever. This is considered one of those coming of age tales, but we’ve seen this same theme over and over again. Nothing changed here, except for the sexual orientation of our main character. This particular theme fits in 2019 and probably would have bombed at any other time. I didn’t laugh and definitely couldn’t get past the fact that Beanie Feldstein is a splitting image of her brother. This movie is really a female version of Superbad, with Hill family members switching roles. I really didn’t take anything away from Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut.
