A movie I did not like: Young Adult



Spoiler: I saw Young Adult last night. If you like movies about destructive, delusional narcissists who make the world a lesser place and never get their comeuppance, all packaged too cleverly within a novel being written by the protagonist, then this is your feel-good holiday movie of the season.

    Pat loved this movie. I’d like to see you two argue about it.

    Sat it isn’t so? I would love to argue about it. As my friend Ed pointed out, there is no moment at which you like the main character at all. The movie is just a drag with a handful of good lines sprinkled in.

    I absolutely loved this movie. I felt like I could relate to the main character Mavis Gary. She is a bit crazy but there are definately similarities between Mavis and me. She’s a character I feel like a lot of people can relate to in one way or another.

  • @Hollie – I can see why people would like this movie. I am just not one of those people. Do you have redeeming qualities? Because if you do, then you and Mavis are not that alike.
