    When it comes to other modern day teen comedies and Booksmart, I'm gonna watch Booksmart.

    The premise of the movie had potential, but the story overall was just so poor in execution. This movie had two parts where I laughed, but other then that it was a waste of time. As a viewer, you are not even rooting for the main character and her mediocre acting doesn't help. I may be harsher than others, but this certainly does not deserve a 96% from the tomatometer. Don't waste your time on this one.

    This movie make me think about how much we need comedy movies to step up it's game. Awesome chemistry from the two leads. The music selection is fire.

    Booksmart does very little new, but serves as an overdue update to an old formula. It's impossible to not be instantly hit with a heavy dose of Superbad (even down to the storyboarding), but instead of two high school boys talking about their mom's boobs, we're met with 2 academic obsessed female leads flaunting the colleges they've been accepted to. While Booksmart does archetype its characters to a silly degree, it works. The movie is consistently funny and whimsical without feeling TOO unbelievable. I had so much fun watching Booksmart and despite its predictability and cribbing from similar films, it is an easy recommendation.

    Booksmart does what it set out to do. It's funny, entertaining, fast-paced, and can become emotional. However, there is an overuse of music or just silence when simply the dialogue would've been more effective. It also doesn't work to remind people of their teen years like it seems to want to do at some points because the action is a little too far-fetched. Although I did find myself audibly laughing at times.

    A hilarious teen comedy that's infectiously charming.

    A great movie that deals with teenage life. If you have a teenager, watch this movie with them!
