I’ll sum it up for you. It’s Superbad but with two hilarious girls. Olivia Wilde about to knock it out of the park with her directorial debut.
Being a book worm in high school, can’t say that was me. Honestly I think that would have been a better title for this film, but what do I know? This was one of the two comedy trailers to drop today, and this really took me by surprise. Hot of the heels of Eighth Grade and Lady Bird, we are going hard R here for what appears do be a great time.
I’m getting a big time Superbad vibe here and ironically enough, Beanie Feldstein is Jonah Hill’s younger sister. Who was in Neighbours 2 and Lady Bird and terrific in both. The other star Kaitlyn Dever is also terrific in anything she is in. This will have a ton of laughs and I’m sure full of messages for young girls and plenty of heart to go around. I actually think Beanie Feldstein is one of the funniest Young actresses working today, and she is going to kill it here.
The premise is nothing new, but quote on quote “losers” going to their first party is always a great movie trope to grasp onto. The rest of the cast is rounded out nicely, and I hope Skyler Gisondo who you might recognize from Santa Clarita Diet plays a big role, because he’s funny as hell.
Word is spreading that Olivia Wilde crushes her directorial debut and I couldn’t be happier. Playing at SXSW right now, it’s the talk of the internet today. Potential to be 2019’s funniest comedy.
