It's a fun movie. The clipesque/derivative aesthetic is not something I appreciate, but: it's nice to watch. It represents clips/other movies more than the director's sense of reality/experience (Eighth Grade is a great movie and does exactly that).
There is a very fake movie argument coming at the perfect movie time but the wrong story time in this movie/movie that does absolutely nothing to me—and the music didn't help—which illustrates my issues. But you want to watch it with friends, eating crap (not literal crap but you do you).

50% of the jokes come from Twitter, but there was a movie I hated whose name I forgot  that had all his jokes coming from Twitter. Booksmart has some life.

 But I can see movies like that being released as 15 minutes episodes on YouTube in the future. It would defeat the purpose of watching it with friends—but, hey, we'll exchange tweets.
I'm so many people.

movie's tons of fun, exactly what you'd expect for the genre with a smidgen more brain and heart than what's usually afforded to most teen flicks. come to think of it, the only teen gross out comedy flick that comes to mind post-90's is....uh, like, superbad. don't know if i liked this so much because i haven't seen one like it in such a long time, but i laughed a lot and held affection for these characters. a lot of really funny moments. olivia wilde did her thing, keeping the story energized with fitting tunes and raucous gags. the leading ladies let loose in the way of good comedy duos, and best of all, the writing was tight considering the number of scribes attributed to the script. all in all, glad I caught the last showtime before this baby says adios to s. fl theaters.

This one's a freebie, but the next person who posts a Lights Camera Jackson video on this board gets banned so hard their entire bloodline logs out.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.
