Anybody who thinks that this is just a female Superbad would be wrong, because it's so much more than that. This is a film about friendship, and in some respects it feels more of the same compared to other coming-of-age films, but it delivers past that expectation with the help of Olivia Wilde's excellent direction and the strength of Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein. This is a film about friendship, but it's also about a celebration of youth and empowerment of one's own life. Dever and Feldstein are perfection but Billie Lourd is hilarious as well! But seriously, it's also the hardest... read the rest.

‘Booksmart' is a fun, hilarious, and instantly and infinitely quotable film, making it a must-see for all ages and sexes. But most importantly, it's exciting.

If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog :) Last year, I missed A Vigilante from Olivia Wilde, and I still haven't watched it. Over time, I gradually lost interest, and I might have even forgotten about its existence. However, after watching Booksmart (which arrived late as hell to my country), I'm definitely watching the former soon. I was never that big of a fan of the young-adult, high-school, coming-of-age type of movies, but some of my favorite films of the last few years (Lady Bird, The Edge of Seventeen) actually belong to that genre. Why am I enjoying these... read the rest.
