georgie’s review published on Letterboxd:
hm. this script is extremely hit or miss! i was almost always either screeching with laughter or cringing at a bad line. but the good moments? were SO Good and spot-on and charming and absolutely earned this 4.5 star rating. i just wish that’s what the whole movie could’ve been like because i don’t understand how it managed to get so many things right while also getting more than several things totally wrong.
also! what’s interesting abt this is how similar it is to eighth grade at certain points. but booksmart is basically eighth grade’s weaker cousin lol. it just can’t match it no matter how hard it tries 🤷🏻♀️
