Young Adult

Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron as a woman in her mid-thirties who decides to win back her high school boyfriend, really doesn't work. It's a lame, yet short and watchable movie.

Life isn't going well for her, though why is pretty much unclear. She gets an announcement of her high school ex's baby's arrival which makes her, weirdly, decide he's the one for her. So in spite of the fact that he's married and a new dad and they've had little contact in decades, she goes to get him back.

The only good thing in this movie is Theron, who is kind of sarcastic and clueless the whole time. It was kind of funny watching her. But really, the whole thing was lame.

I am in total agreement--parts were actually inept.
