Told from a wildly original, fresh, and modern perspective, this is an unfiltered comedy about high school best friends and the bonds they create that last a lifetime. Capturing the spirit of the times, it is a coming-of-age story for a new generation.

I love this movie so much

I thought this was excellent, super funny with some true emotional depth. The secondary and tertiary characters had actual character depth (a rare sight indeed). It had diversity in characters, clever jokes, matching outfits, feminist rants. Amazing.

fun teenage story

This film is SO great! Love opening scene of two friends greeting each other by dancing, more specifically BreakDancing. Based on that alone I decided to start a trend of greeting whomever I like with dancing, they usually reciprocate. Interesting directed by actress Olivia Wilde from “Drinking Buddies” Film. She did a good job. Highly reccomended it. I also loved how involved the parents are in their kids life, cool. JF

Thought it would be funnier. It's no Superbad, but a few laughs.

Really awesome coming of age teen movie! It has Superbad DNA which I really like. Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever are really amazing together, their chemistry pops!

I wanted to like this, I really did. A smart, female-centric comedy? I love those! One of the main problems was that one of the two protagonists, Molly, was so unlikeable for most of the film. Bossy, controlling, snobbish, egotistical. Ugh. It made it very difficult to root for her. Amy was much more likeable, but why, just when things were working out for her, did the writers ruin everything by writing in the awful vomiting scene? It felt contrived and unnecessary and just an excuse to humiliate the most likeable character in the movie. Ugh again. And why did two such allegedly smart girls keep behaving so idiotically? Ugh some more. Wanting to cram all that partying into one night was such an unworthy goal for two allegedly smart characters. It was frustrating, because this movie had so much potential, and has some good bits, but for me it never lived up to its promise.

This 2019 film didn't work for me - far too ALT or whatever. This whack view of high school was too cartoonish - but didn't hit my funny bone.

Laugh out loud funny portayal of two teen friends on the cusp of adulthood. Like "Superbad" but with girls. Expect intense high school friendship, hijinks, fumbling romance, and lots of awkwardness.

Molly: It's fun your mom thinks we're boning.

Amy: It isn't you who has to deal with their awkward looks when I say that I'm going to the library with you and I'm actually going to the library with you.

Many quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors. Most are too raunchy to post and a few are too subtle without the actions on screen like this one:
