    One of the most surprising and creative studio comedies in a while. I can't believe that this is from the same guys behind the atrocious Vacation remake. Some of the best writing and editing in a comedy in quite some time. The score by Cliff Martinez is immaculate and oddly enough fits the tone of this movie. Everyone in the cast is also great, especially Jesse Plemons. I hope Jesse Plemons gets more recognition after this film, because he's one of the most memorable characters I've seen in a film in a while.

    Clint Eastwood has officially lost his touch! If you thought Sully was a pointless story to translate into a movie, then just wait. The main actor is fine for someone who has never acted in a movie before, but that's the only positive thing that I can say about this movie. I'd say that the professional actors (Judy Greer and Jenna Fisher) are worse than the unprofessional actors in this. This also has some of the worst writing that I've ever seen in a major studio film, and there's an insane amount of filler in this movie. Clint Eastwood, make a real movie again, or retire.

    Still my favorite of the year. Despite an abundance of coming of age films released and getting praise in the indie markets this decade, this film somehow feels special. Unlike a lot of coming of age films, nothing feels contrived. All of the performances came off as real, and not "were in a indie coming of age film", which is what I was worried this film was going to be.

    I love how this film doesn't just focus on Saorise…

    It's probably good.
