Its substance is scantly developed, its clear and simple premise dismayingly oversimplified. Despite the emotional authenticity of the protagonists' dilemma, their journey comes off as a fantasy.

Booksmart is audacious, authentic, and destined to become a new coming-of-age classic.

Olivia Wilde gets rich into heads of young teen girls with her directorial debut. Billie Lourd is outrageously gorgeous as Gigi and Bernie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever have a cinema sisterhood that will go down in history. Welcome back to H.S.

Booksmart is an unapologetically bawdy but smart and touching reflection of what female adolescence means today; it's like if Lady Bird was written by Sarah Silverman.

Booksmart manages to be the funniest high school comedy in years while never losing sight of its powerful emotional core.

A raunch fest that pulls no punches and gives us all hope that boundary pushing comedy need not include hate or regressive ideas to be absolutely hysterical.

Walking out of Booksmart, I knew two things: Beanie Feldstein is going to be a star, and Booksmart has effortlessly earned its place in the classic teen film canon. I can't wait to watch it again.
