    Summary: Two brown-nose best friends are about to graduate high school, when they realize they've spent too much time worrying about their grades and missed the opportunity of their lives to party with their peers. How much can they pack into the eve of their graduation? Takeaways: The amusing main characters take a coming of age drama and give it a chaotic, hilarious spin. At one point, I'm pretty sure I laughed so hard I cried.

    This coming-of-age comedy gives the genre a more imaginative spin and is fast-paced, witty and rather enjoyable, even for a more mature audience.

    Inevitably drawing comparisons to Superbad, Booksmart manages to distinguish itself with some more subversive and intelligent humour and some really creative scenes. There's one scene in particular that sticks out as being completely out of leftfield and absolutely, brilliantly bonkers. I wish there was more of that in the film, but even then the rest is really well done, and at times, hilarious. It's been a while since a film has made me laugh out loud multiple times throughout the runtime. I guess the message of the film is to not get so preoccupied with and focussed on your future that you end up forgetting to live. Something that I definitely need to be reminded every now and then.

    'Booksmart' is a rather surprisingly well-made coming-of-age comedy. This film will having you laughing out loud several times. Even though some jokes don't always land, since most comedy is subjective, the plot is entertaining enough to hold you through the entire movie. There is a lot of genuine energy in this film, and perhaps without some of the over the top scenes that did not feel necessary to the film, maybe the ending would have made more an impact. Majority of audiences, especially teens and young adults, will find themselves relating to the characters in the film, but it still left off on a note that made me think that there was more potential in the film that had not been tapped into.

    Um dos melhores filmes do ano, foi divertido assistir e enquanto assistia me lembrava de Dazed&Confused, porque é um filme divertido sobre adolescentes curtindo seu último dia de aula, sem vilões nem grandes plots, nem tentando fazer algo fora do que se proporcionou. É extremamente divertido ver como elas se apoiam, se divertem e acabam quebrado expectativas ruins sobre seus colegas de classe e crescendo com isso. É um filme super engraçado, com piadas certeiras, amei!!!

    This was weirder than I expected but I loved it so much. Every character was perfect and it's a great high school comedy.

    Pros: it's a fresh take and a new spin on teenage comedy Cons: Overdone. Tried too hard. It was like a puppy - cute at first but after a while you need a break. I kept looking at the time to see when it would be over.

    8.75/10. Full disclosure - I'm a sucker for coming-of-age stories, even if I'm starting to age out of their target demographic. With that in mind, this might be the best combination of humor and heart-string pulling I've seen in a few years. Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever are a wonderful pair, capable of both making you laugh for minutes at a time and take you to that emotional, personal place on the cusp of adulthood, through each of the ecstatic ups and tumultuous downs that form the high-school experience. Each supporting actor was great as well, from the familiar veterans we all know and love to the fresh faced teens I hope see more of. The actors benefit from a strong script and characters that are worth getting to know. It's a warm, hilarious, and all-around well done reminder of the importance of friendship, endeavoring new experiences, and making memories.

    Amazing movie. A teen movie format but absolutely packed with original and truly hilarious scenes. There are so many talented individuals in this film who brought their own personalities and humour to the movie. Fantastic.

    Super annoying and super stupid. I guess it's just one of those movies which are pointless.
