Booksmart ★★½

I tried to watch this again... the first time I thought it was mildly funny at times. This viewing however opened my eyes as to how astoundingly overrated this movie is. I found myself cringing more frequently whenever Wilde tried to throw in gen-z political jabs (again, the “Malala” safe word... gag 😖). Was Booksmart’s script supposed to be immature? Judging by its absurdly high ratings, apparently so.
