    ★★★★½

    The most satisfying headache I've ever had. Give Adam Sandler his Oscar.

    Genuinely confused with the praise this movie is getting. Not remotely funny and a huge step back in accurately representing high school/adolescence.

    It's weird because the film is so neatly constructed and even innovative at times, yet it fails to convey a single theme or idea. It also does that awful thing at least 20 times where it slows down and drowns out any sound in favor of playing a random pop song because this is apparently the only way the film can think to create any emotional connection between us and its characters.
