Booksmart is so unreal. Where do they get all these 18 year olds with huge talent and very developed personas? Like Mean Girls, they all show capability for meanness, but unlike Mean Girls they all have a chance to shine. And the valedictory speech is human. Some great comedy – and in particular, the animation piece (feminists punished by becoming Barbie dolls) and the karaoke (teens singing Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughta Know”). I laughed even though I don’t care about the teen melodramas and I don’t get school graduation ceremonies. Go see. Wiki. Guardian review.
