Movie Review: Young Adult (2011)

Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron) ghost writes a young adult book series (like ‘Roommates’, ‘Sisters’ or ‘Sugar & Spice’) and obsesses over her high school boyfriend Buddy (Patrick Wilson) who still lives in her hometown of Mercury. She wants to be loved by Buddy and heads home to win him back.

She stumbles across Matt (Patton Oswalt of ‘Caprica’ and ‘United States of Tara’) who fancies her but she overlooks. She is too busy chasing the married Buddy, ignoring her dog, watching reality TV and being bitter and pathetic.

It all ends in public humiliation as Mavis has a meltdown thanks to the horrible Buddy and his equally horrible wife. No lessons are learned. This was sadly dull but still better than the horrid 'Juno'.

Best Lines:
Take that liver!”

“Weren’t you that hate crime guy?”

“We’re way less of a hick town.”

“I’m a married man.”
“I know, we can beat this thing together.”

“Everyone here is fat and dumb.”

“I hate this town. It’s a hick lake town that smells of fish s---!”
