Booksmart ★★★★½

Lioke Brigsby Bear and Night is Short, Walk on Girl, this movie feels like it was made in every way specifically to please me as a moviegoer. Well, in every way besides the raunchy stuff, but it's a teen movie so you kinda know what you're getting ahead of time.

But c'mon, folks. This is a coming-of-age teen comedy about friendship, about growing up and growing apart, and that's well-trodden ground. What makes Booksmart fantastic is that it has a bonkers-level script with some of the best characters I've seen in a comedy since... well, Lady Bird. The movie is super gay, avoids cliches like the plague, and has an absolutely gonzo weird sense of humor--and it's all up my alley.

We'll see if I can get past the raunchy stuff in repeat viewings for this to become one of my favorites, but one thing's for sure: Booksmart is one of the best movies of 2019 by a wide margin.
