Young Adult

Rated R 94 minutes 2011

There’s a lot to like about Charlize Theron in Young Adult, even if there’s no reason at all to like the woman she portrays. Mavis Gary (Theron) writes sappy teen books for a living, and with her living, Mavis drinks until she passes out most nights. She never moved past her high school boyfriend, and now that he’s married with a new baby, Mavis decides to get him back. A real biting comedy from Juno writer Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman, Young Adult gives Theron a chance to use her comedic skills more than she really ever has, and she gets a great helping hand from Patton Oswalt as the high school geek who’s still a geek. The conflict that’s ultimately resolved is a little weak, but this is still a funny, occasionally pungent movie.
