Young Adult (Jason Breitman)

High expectations are a bitch. Nothing like them to ruin a film for you. If I had never seen 'Juno' and had not read so many positive reviews of 'Young Adult' I would most likely have been a lot less disappointed.

Yet, there is much to like! An unusual and intelligent plot, an atypical female leading role (so embarrassing it hurts), great acting, a realistic setting, an unexpected and clever ending...

So why did we feel a bit let down? Perhaps because the dialogues were not as witty and bright as we had hoped. It felt as if this film could potentially have been funnier and therefore even better. Bummer.
