Booksmart

Comedy


 

As high-school comes to an end, two young academics realise they didn't party enough. On the eve of graduation, they seek a chance to redeem themselves.

"Booksmart" is a modern teenage comedy perfectly suited to its audience. It expertly handles diversity with an all-inclusive cast, insightfully capturing the innocence, naivety and goofball fun of its female stars. Girls just wanna have fun, and they are downright hilarious as they navigate all kinds of obstacles to reach the climactic party. They might be precocious, but it doesn't matter when the dialogue is so good. Street smart.
