- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsOne of the best acted, directed, and best overall movies I've ever seen.
- Rating: 1 out of 5 starsI cringed the entire time. Okay, I laughed a couple times. It felt like it was written by Gen Xers pandering to Gen Z "sensibilities" and nostalgia for 80s teen movies populated by stereotypes figuring out that their classmates are "real people". Only it even failed at that trope- none of the characters got around to feeling real. Watched it (as a Gen Xers) with our Gen Z teens, and they laughed a few times, too. But one said "it was okay" and the other "didn't really like it". I asked "Do you know anyone who acts like that?" -Nope. Okay, thanks-not just me being out of touch! Yeah, the so-called "edgy" stuff felt forced, the "heartfelt moments" shallow, and the humor just cheap. The surreal moments were out of place in a movie that wasn't all-out weird and campy. Not gonna be a cult classic!
- Rating: 1 out of 5 starsgood cast, bad directing
- Rating: 3 out of 5 starsTypical teen type stuff… on the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realise they should have worked less and played more so try to cram four years of fun into one night. It is hardly an original premise and under Olivia Wilde's direction it labours in some sections. There are some memorable elements but ultimately it is pretty overhyped.
- Rating: 2 out of 5 starsSome parts were ok but it really did feel like Superbad with girls but not half as funny. It didn't have the great chemistry that Jonah and Michael had. Also how can you beat McLovin?
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsI don't typically like teen rom-coms (if you can call this a rom-com) but this was just so well done! The humor made me laugh out loud in several places, while also being able to have really tense and emotional moments. The music choices were really good (if not ironically funny in places), the two main characters had really good interactions, and heck, all the characters were fun. Contrary to other reviews, I don't think the other characters are supposed to be accurate representations of teenagers, instead they are exaggerated caricatures to make a point about teen culture. I'm also glad all the characters realized who were the people who actually care about them, it always bothers me when characters push others away. I also enjoyed the mixed-medium doll scene, that was pretty clever. The enemies-to-lovers part confused me, but that's just me.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsPhenomenal coming of age story 👏 Very relatable and authentic. Props to the music being used too. Olivia Wilde knows what and how to use them 10/10
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsI enjoyed every single minute and every single thing about this film.
- Rating: 4 out of 5 starsGreat cast. Wonderfully acted. Excellent script and direction.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsI believe this to be the superior film of the 2 olivia wilde good movies (other is dont worry darling.) So watch this movie and see it as the equally leveled superbadish movie with a delightful spin to it! This movie is an A+ "you ought to know"
