Adult Life Skills

Critics Consensus

Adult Life Skills covers familiar territory, but an endearingly quirky story -- and starring turn from Jodie Whittaker -- make this coming-of-age comedy well worth a watch.

Jodie Whittaker's performance humanizes the film's troubled protagonist better than the story.

This is one of those so-called British comedies that is not remotely clever or amusing, even in the rare moments when you can decipher what comes out of the mouths of actors who sound like they could be from Mars.

Sweet but less oddball than it thinks.

Whittaker is easily the best thing about the movie. When the script fails in its attempts to flesh out Anna's character, Whittaker comes to the rescue. She can be funny, profane, dour, and heartbreaking. Oh, and quirky.

By the time I had finished watching the aggressively whimsical British comedy "Adult Life Skills," my eyes had rolled so far back in my head I could barely focus.

"Adult Life Skills" is a relentlessly quirky British comedy-drama that demonstrates why more is not always more.
