Booksmart manages to be inclusive and progressive, without being precious about anything or sacrificing an ounce of humour.

Every generation needs its own rowdy high school comedy, and Millennials deserve one that treats the anxieties teens have been grappling with for millennia with the same urgency that Jerry Bruckheimer would bring to a high-stakes action movie.

"Booksmart" is sharp but not mean, warm without feeling too soft or timid.

Booksmart is inclusive and progressive without feeling forced and announces Wilde, an actor who hasn't always found her groove on screen, as a major director, one of the more impressive behind-the-camera transitions I have seen for a while.

Deliciously brash, occasionally devilishly bawdy and just darn entertaining, Booksmart earns an Easy A from me.

"Booksmart" leaves you feeling unaccountably hopeful for the state of humanity - and the state of American screen comedy too.

I adored Olivia Wilde's Booksmart, a movie that has a deep well of empathy not just for its brainy lead characters, but for teenagers in general.

I'm certainly not a genZ-er but this film is just plain fun, and kinda insane but warm and the lead performances are just perfect, its awkward and hilarious and just hugely likable

Despite an overloading of pop culture references and at times cartoon-y (yet thoroughly thoroughly entertaining) supporting characters, Booksmart is brazen and funny in its delivery.
