Movie Reviews

Tampa Bay Times - 10/10 by Steve Persall It's the most unsettling nice surprise of 2011.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Mick LaSalle A dark comedy that confirms Diablo Cody as a screenwriter of importance, eliminates the last shred of doubt that Jason Reitman is a major director and gives Charlize Theron her best showcase since "Monster."
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Betsy Sharkey When it's done right, as it is in Young Adult, there is something absolutely mesmerizing about watching a train wreck unfold on screen. When the wreck in question is a narcissistic beauty played to scheming, sour, downward-spiraling perfection by Charlize Theron, cringing is definitely called for, but so is laughter.
The New York Times - 9/10 by A.O. Scott Shorter than a bad blind date and as sour as a vinegar Popsicle, Young Adult shrouds its brilliant, brave and breathtakingly cynical heart in the superficial blandness of commercial comedy.
Movieline - 9/10 by S.T. Vanairsdale Young Adult is the first of Reitman's films from which I haven't felt him choking out a message; ironically, its rawness yields the humanity that he thought he was wringing from "Up in the Air."
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 9/10 by Joe Williams Clear-eyed, fearless and ferociously funny, Young Adult is mature filmmaking.
Variety - 9/10 by Peter Debruge Reteaming pop-savvy scribe Diablo Cody with "Juno" director Jason Reitman, Young Adult revels in breaking the rules of safe Hollywood storytelling.
Entertainment Weekly - 9/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum Young Adult bumps along with nasty swerves, middle finger proudly in the air, toward an ending blessedly free of anything warm, fuzzy, or optimistic. Now that's adult entertainment.
Film4 - 9/10 by Catherine Bray It's so rare that women get to play fully rounded, three dimensional, flawed human beings, that's it's almost kind of unsettling to realise that's what's going on here.
Wall Street Journal - 9/10 by Joe Morgenstern A cockeyed comic triumph that flashes between bright and dark like a strobe light of the spirit. And Ms. Theron, as Mavis Gary, a self-styled author rather than a mere writer, succeeds sensationally at something much harder than playing ravaged.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert Patton Oswalt is, in a way, the key to the film's success. Theron is flawless at playing a cringe-inducing monster and Wilson touching as a nice guy who hates to offend her, but the audience needs a point of entry, a character we can identify with, and Oswalt's Matt is human, realistic, sardonic and self-deprecating. He speaks truth to Mavis.
Arizona Republic - 8/10 by Bill Goodykoontz Young Adult is a horror movie disguised as a dark comedy.
