| Loved it! Wonderful coming of age movie.
After watching Booksmart, I thought it would be a great idea to read the reviews on imdb, only to find out that quite literally everyone thought the exact opposite of this movie as I did. i love coming of age movies because they are always so relatable since we are always evolving, and coming of age is not a one time event. Take Rushmore, for example. It's not a movie you have to google afterwards because you didn't get it, it's a movie that makes you feel hopeful, thankful and just plain jolly, and makes you genuinely care about the characters (same goes for this film).

Booksmart may be a little rough around the edges and has a couple of things that didn't quite pan out (NOT A SPOILER: when Amy and Molly are fighting at that party and everyone is recording with their phones, but where the heck do those videos go?) but it doesn't mean it's not worth watching. It honestly made me feel as if I could do anything and made me value my friendships, as if I could do anything BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IT IS MEANT TO DO, GIVE YOU HOPE. I get it, it's not an arthouse film blah blah blah, but, well, neither is fricking Avengers and you all still seem to enjoy it. Don't be so cynical and try to relate, and you might actually like this film as much as I did.

And also, yes, I agree that some actors are a little too old to play high school kids but Billie Lourd did a fantastic job as usual, and Beanie is PERFECT for this part although she is 26. Remember not all movies have to make you lose faith in humanity, as this one does the exact opposite.

Finally, all I have left to say is: it may not be a masterpiece, but it is enjoyable as hell if you let it.
