This weekend, the raucously hilarious R-rated high school comedy Booksmart starts hitting theaters. Lauded as a female Superbad, this looks like it should be the sleeper hit of the summer, assuming of course people actually know that the movie is in theaters and pay for a ticket to see it.
Booksmart stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein as two best friends and high school seniors who spent their entire school career studying their asses off and getting the best grades they could in order to get into the college of their dreams. But now they realize it might have been all for naught as the less dedicated side of their graduating class got into the colleges they wanted, but still had time to party it up. That means it’s time to pack four years of partying into their last night as high schoolers. Needless to say, chaos and hilarity ensues, and you can get another taste of it in the new red band Booksmart trailer. Read More »
