Hollywood Buzz #149

O que se diz lá fora sobre YOUNG ADULT, de Jason Reitman:

«Patton Oswalt is, in a way, the key to the film's success. Theron is flawless at playing a cringe-inducing monster and Wilson touching as a nice guy who hates to offend her, but the audience needs a point of entry, a character we can identify with, and Oswalt's Matt is human, realistic, sardonic and self-deprecating. He speaks truth to Mavis.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

«Shorter than a bad blind date and as sour as a vinegar Popsicle, YOUNG ADULT shrouds its brilliant, brave and breathtakingly cynical heart in the superficial blandness of commercial comedy.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.

«Their scenes together are the film's best, with Theron and Oswalt, who have very different tempi and temperatures as performers, parrying and thrusting with great expertise.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.

«YOUNG ADULT bumps along with nasty swerves, middle finger proudly in the air, toward an ending blessedly free of anything warm, fuzzy, or optimistic. Now that's adult entertainment.»
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.

«With self destruction as destiny, Reitman has made the equivalent of a Roland Emmerich disaster movie writ small, an apocalyptic scenario internalized by a single person.»
Eric Kohn, indieWIRE.
