I really enjoyed this but it was pretty messy tone-wise and I couldn’t really get invested in any of the characters. Really a testament to how we become the exact person others were to us. Beautiful film though.
me: okay class, we've rehearsed a few times, now let's see if you all can remember your lines
70s kids: american graffiti made me who i am
80s kids: the breakfast club made me who i am
90s kids: clueless made me who i am
2000s kids: superbad made me who i am
2010s kids: the fault in our stars m-
me: *slaps every single one of the '10s kids' stupid fucking faces* WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?
2010s kids: uh, ehrm, we meant booksmart made me who i am...
me: you bet your ass you did. now get the fuck out
y’all are not fucking ready for this movie...this is more than just female Superbad, anybody who thinks that it’s just that and nothing more is an idiot. this is a film about friendship, female friendship, about celebration of youth and empowerment of one’s own life. Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein are perfection but Billie Lourd is fucking HILARIOUS!!! but it’s also the hardest i’ve laughed in a long time and i’ll be voting for Olivia Wilde in the 2020 presidential election. this deserves Best Picture for the doll scene alone and i will love and cherish my this movie until i die
