However did Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman get the funding to make this film? It eschews so many of the conventional narrative tricks for character studies like this, namely our main character doesn’t appear to change much by the end. We’re stuck with a dark, sour, alcoholic woman whose personal highlights are behind her, and who has crystallized her power-bitch prom-queen persona into a fright... read more

An honest and brutally funny character study.

"Sometimes in order to heal a few people have to get hurt."

The last collaboration between director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody was back in 2007 with the Oscar-winning Juno. Now, after the amazing Up in the Air, Reitman reunites again with Cody, and the result is Young Adult. It's definitely a far-cry from Juno, but Reitman and Cody handle the subject matter amazingl... read more

When I watched the trailer for this film, I thought this would be a fun light comedy. But a few minutes into the movie I found out I couldn't be more wrong. Although there are some funny moments (mostly black humor), this is essentially a drama. Not that that's a bad thing, I found this to be touching and beautiful, even though I know quite a few people who deeply disliked it. I guess it's just no... read more

An average movie

“Starting with 3 critical successes in a row, it seemed that Jason Reitman could do now wrong and was set to become one of the most exciting directors at work nowadays. However, his impressive progression seemed to have slow down with this 4th directing effort which didn’t get much love when it was eventually released. To start with, in his previous movies, the main character was flawed but still likeable whereas, here, even though Charlize Theron gave a fearless performance which was universally heralded, she was basically a selfish obnoxious bitch so the whole thing was harder to sell. But that wasn’t the main issue, in my opinion, the main problem was that it took way too long before she realised how insane her whole plan was. Even though the outcome was pretty obvious (except for Ma” read more

"November 18 "Mary Ellen, you were great tonight. It's so inspiring to see a single mother with so much confidence on stage. Really." This was a very interesting movie with great dialogue and characters. It's not a perfect movie. There were a couple parts in this movie that could've been removed, but I really enjoyed this movie and proves that Jason Reitman is a better director than his father is."

"Eu tive a impressão errada sobre esse filme. Algum trailer ou inside the movie sobre ele me deu a impressão errada. Mas eu gostei, achei bem interessante, bem não-clichê. Só foi um pouco chato, e eu não curti nenhum personagem. Mas foi interessante, e final realista. Odeio finais hollywoodianos. Esse foi bem mais realista."

"Katsottu: 3.11.2013 Ihan mukavaa krapulan tappajaa, jossa vitsit olivat osuvia. Minua huvitti suunnattomasti, koska yritin varmaan 20 minuuttia etsiä netflixistä jotain mahdollisimman paskaa romanttista komediaa katsottavaksi ja vahingossa sieltä löytyikin oikeasti hyvä elokuva."

"I felt so sorry for Charlize Theron character, at times I wanted to punch her because she was so sad and dump. Than I laughed my ass off, because her character was so sad you just had to laugh because you knew she was going to get what was coming to her. It is a really good movie, and Charlize did a fantastic job in the lead. "

Movie Diary - 2013 (500 movies items)

"28.2.2013 Charlize Theron on hyvä roolissaan nuoisokirjailijana, joka lähestyy hiljalleen keski-ikää mutta ei ole henkisesti juuri kypsynyt matkan varrella. Päähenkilö yrittää lapsellisesti hommata lukioaikaisen poikaystävänsä takaisin. Leffa tarjosi muutamat naurut ja mukavan määrän myötähäpeää. "

Not that that's a bad thing, I found this to be touching and beautiful, even though I know quite a few people who deeply disliked it. I guess it's just not a crowd pleaser. I'll admit it has a slow pace and I don't recommend it for those who have little patience when watching films. But it's a compelling story and the main character (Mavis) is really relatable. She's a woman who used to have everything when she was younger, but somewhere along the way she lost herself and she can't seem to be able to pull her life back together.
