Best friends Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) have spent their high school years being as studious as possible, and have consequently landed the colleges of their choice.
So with one night of high school life left before the summer break, it’s time to cut loose! Not Just Another Dumb Teen Comedy, this super smart entry combines the best of John Hughes – The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful – with some inspired moments from Better Off Dead, Mean Girls, and even the first American Pie. The drama is handled with appropriate gravity, and the gross-out gags avoid being crass. Booksmart superbly captures the awkwardness and intensity of being a teenager, and proves that while tech, fashions and language may change, the high school experience has retained an incredible timelessness through the decades.
