"The best thing about now, is that there's another one tomorrow."

The Spectacular Now was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the two scribes who were also responsible for 2009's indie smash (500) Days of Summer (let's forget about The Pink Panther 2). In a perfect world, all romantic comedies should be penned by this pair, as their scripts are full of raw honesty and ... read more

“"The best thing about now, is that there's another one tomorrow."

The Spectacular Now was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the two scribes who were also responsible for 2009's indie smash (500) Days of Summer (let's forget about The Pink Panther 2). In a perfect world, all romantic comedies should be penned by this pair, as their scripts are full of raw honesty and tender humour, eschewing a Hollywood approach to present a realistic rom-com tale that manages to be both satisfying and entertaining. Based on the acclaimed novel by Tim Tharp, and directed by relative newcomer James Ponsoldt, The Spectacular Now is simply enchanting. Most every scene throughout the movie's 95-minute duration possesses such a natural disposition that it often feels like we're watching” read more

My Best & Worst Movies of 2013 (85 movies items)

"A teen romance drama that already feels like a classic. Sweet, earnest, and completely heartbreaking. I love how they handled alcoholism here and offered some real consequences without falling into melodrama. Shailene Woodley and especially Miles Teller are stars in the making here and clearly have long careers ahead of them. Also, Kyle Chandler in a bit performance does some of the best work I've ever seen from him."

" Miles Teller is really trying to make a name for himself in the film industry as he proves himself in this charming Indie romance. A really good coming of age lesson. Also the ending was bittersweet. It's worth a watch."

"Shailene Woodley on ihana, mutta myös tämän ja The Descendantsin perusteella varsin pätevä näyttelijä. Päähenkilö aiheutti minulle suurta vitutusta välillä. Siitä huolimatta oikein hyvä elokuva."

Film Journal 2014 (79 movies items)

"6/1 In this cheerful movie an alcoholic in the making creates another from his girlfriend, then has her ran over by a car and is all "oh shit I need to change my ways" and then they get back together in the end but they're both still raging alcoholics. I want this movie to be Blue Valentine'd but unfortunately that didn't happen."
