I didn’t expect to so thoroughly enjoy this film, but the film is a lot of fun with a great cast of to compliment it. Specifically the adults in the film, who are only in the movie to compliment Olive (Emma Stone) and have little character of their own, are so well played with excellent comic timing.
The film centres on Olive, a high school girl who makes a quick excuse to excuse herself from her BFF’s family camping extravaganza. Her excuse being a date… EEE! When she denies losing her virginity to this college boy, her friend assumes the worst1. Olive figures she might as well play along, and overheard, the rumour quickly spreads throughout the student body. Emma, loves the attention, until a rapey date. Sigh. She quickly learns that it’s better just to be yourself.
So, while it’s not the greatest setup for a film, it’s the execution and clever dialogue that makes the film fun and interesting. It was definitely a good way to spend 92 minutes.
Jolly Snowflake Day, cats and kittens.
