Review:

On the eve of their high school graduation, Amy and Molly are coming to realise that their hard work, sacrifices, and assiduously following the rules have gotten them into good universities, but so has everyone else! No one has any idea they’re fun, so they hatch a plan – go to a party, be awesome fun and have everyone remember their name. In the space of a few hours, this simple plan escalates into chaos…

While sounding by the numbers, this quirky teen comedy is a breath of fresh air, with a sharp script and outstanding performances from relative newcomers Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein. Accompanied by a strong supporting cast including Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses), and Lisa Kudrow (Friends), this is the female Superbad you always wanted.

Gail Marshall
