This movie was terrible. I’m not sure how anyone is giving it anything better than 2 stars... we sat through the whole movie expecting at some point the laughs were going to come but alas we had only a mere chuckle or two. Someone said it’s a female version of ‘Superbad’, and it’s not even it the same ballpark..

A fun comedy and coming of age story. I saw a early screening of it and thought was a cool concept. Some parts I felt were a bit overdone, and some can use better writing. There’s a good amount of laughs. And discovery. A lot of discovery sexuality. But, overall I enjoyed it.

Absolutely hilarious and the perfect amount of crazy. I haven’t much enjoyed comedy movies lately but this has revived the genre for me. Great watch.

I was really excited to see a comedy but this turned out to be just another movie about high school love and parties. the funny parts were just in the commercial. I kept waiting for the movie to pick up until I realized it was over. half way in I almost left but stayed for something to happen. there was a preview of a movie called good boy which had everyone laughing longer and harder than the actual movie. wouldn't recommend.

Save your money and wait for it to come out on Netflix or Redbox. Booksmart was a Superbad rip off that tried way too hard to be funny.

I love the female perspective in this film. It's funny, real, light, and sexy. I couldn't stop laughing and that deserves 5 stars.

Literally the kind of movie where a whole theater was laughing hysterically together. (At some point I will see this again just to hear all the lines I missed by laughing through them).

At first glance Booksmart might seem an average coming of age tale. But the layers of the characters and realism of their struggles takes the movie to another level. I am glad I saw this movie and would recommend it if this genre is for you.

Taking the generic senior year themed teen movie and led it by two actresses. But funnier and clever. Great cinematography on top of it.

I can't wait until this is out on digital so I can watch every day. It was amazing, the cast was incredible and Olivia Wilde was a unique visual style in her directing that made this very memorable

It was honestly hit or miss with the humor for me, but it definitely had some moments that really made me laugh! There was even a little heart mixed in during the last half that mellowed out some of the over-the-top humor attempts. It's worth checking out but dont expect laugh-a-minute humor. Not a bad indie coming-of-age comedy though.

My friend Directed this movie. I think it was a well thought out movie. I was these girls, always studying and never playing and the last few days of school I partied. This movie was basically my reality. Don't hate on the movie, because it is relatable for many people. It's like a female Superbad.

The comedy is a bit of an acquired taste, but for the most part I enjoyed the movie. The main actresses are the best part of the movie, and I liked the silliness of the plot as well. Don’t see it with parents - this is definitely a movie to see with friends.

I really wanted to genuinely laugh out loud but no part in the movie was truly funny enough for me to do so. Disappointed.

BEST GIRL LEAD HUMOR I’VE SEEN W TASTEFUL JOKES. None were done to be vulgar, cheap or extreme w/o reason. They were genuinely well written and landed so well to the audience. I was cracking up!!! Well done Olivia Wilde!!! Well. Done.

The movie was really funny. There are some parts that are boring but overall it made me and my husband laugh. Recommend if going on a date or just to go see alone.

Loved it. Reminded me of high school and the fun I never had. Very relatable for those of us who were outcasts and never had fun. The movie is funny, cute, interesting, and just plain fun to watch. I loved it.

There are only so many ways to make a teen graduation party/coming of age movie. It’s a tired plot device. This one jazzes the format up a bit with a feminist angle, clever dialogue, and having the leads be proud and sweet nerds. But ultimately it’s lightweight fare. It’s a good date movie for 30 and 40 somethings.

It’s a teen sex romp well suited for the summer of 2019: feminist but not preachy, raunchy but not nasty, emotionally intelligent but not sentimental.

Nothing funnier, smarter, quicker or more joyous has graced the big screen in a long time. Every performance pulses with wit, whether drawing-room-precise or burlesque-broad. Every joke fires infallibly, whether blithe, barbed or raunchy. Every fresh face conceals a surprise. It’s a thrilling achievement by any measure, an AP course in the exuberance of youth.
