Booksmart QuickViews

July 15, 2019 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

From Olivia Wilde comes her directorial debut: Booksmart.

 

Always at the top of their classes in terms of grades, 2 high school graduate best friends (Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein) decide to show everyone in their school what they’re made of through partying, after being teased that they never enjoy life and fun outside of school.

 

Although Booksmart has lots of charm, amazing performances by Dever, Feldstein, Billie Lourd, Skyler Gisondo, Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte and Lisa Kudrow and fantastic directing by Wilde, it has lots of jokes that are targeted mostly to women that some men will absolutely not get.

 

Office Rating: 5/10
