Superbad ripoff, this time with chicks


And I didnt even know Beanie Feldstein was Jonah Hill's sister when I saw it! I found some of the young supporting cast had fairly good comic presence and I wouldnt be surprised if some of them go.on to bigger work. The near-unanimous praise from critics is what led me to see it. It currently has an inexplicable 84 on Metacritic. I was hoping for a sensitive high school dramedy about smart students who actually care about school, but that's not where it goes. Save your money and wait til it shows up on streaming or cable. Good for a few mild chuckles but hardly deserving of the hosannas the critics are singing for this derivative piece of work.

I liked it.

It flopped at the box office despite a near-unanimous positive critical reception. That 84 Metacritic is what made me want to see it but I felt like a fool afterward.

Still, since at least it received great reviews and it's a good story, it's worthy to see anyway.

No it isn't.
