    ★★★½

    Definitely dated, and also kind of frustrating because I empathized with Jane Fonda's character and I thought it was unfair of Hepburn to keep telling her that she needed to be okay with her shitty father. That said, some of the scenes focusing on fear of growing old and this last phase of life were really effecting.

    While I do not necessarily love this movie in the same WAY I loved it at 20 (which is only for the best), I still think it holds up as a remarkably sharp and biting black high school comedy. Something that could never have been made even ten years down the line, it dares to satirize topics that are usually untouched, and does it in a way that is challenging and provocative. Still one of the best.

    This is... such a waste. I knew it got bad reviews and I was not expecting very much. But this is way less than I was expecting. And why? This should have been funny! Melissa McCarthy is funny! The weird Martha Stewart-type parody certainly seems like it should be funny! The actors in it are all funny. Girl Scouts fighting in the streets? Funny! And yet not a damn thing is funny. I think I smirked like once. Just a waste of things.
