The Press Reviews

  • A hilarious, blazingly paced teen comedy that also happens to mark the feature directing debut of Olivia Wilde. Full Review

  • Booksmart is inclusive and progressive without feeling forced and announces Wilde, an actor who hasn't always found her groove on screen, as a major director, one of the more impressive behind-the-camera transitions I have seen for a while. Full Review

  • Every generation needs its own rowdy high school comedy, and Millennials deserve one that treats the anxieties teens have been grappling with for millennia with the same urgency that Jerry Bruckheimer would bring to a high-stakes action movie. Full Review

  • Booksmart manages to be inclusive and progressive, without being precious about anything or sacrificing an ounce of humour. Full Review
