Charlize Theron is gorgeous and she is great in the leading role in “Young Adult”. The movie, however, is otherwise terrible.
Three thumbs down.
Unless you are a huge Charlize Theron fan and absolutely have to see her in everything she is in do not go. It is slow moving, depressing, boring, and predictable. I am not a critic who spoils movies for people so I will not give anything away other than the fact that I would be very surprised if you liked it.
John Malkovich were involved with the project, Diablo Cody was the author (and we know she can write) and the film was directed by Jason Reitman, so I was surprised at how bad it was. Ho hum.
I was excited to see a trailer for an upcoming film starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston though. And the popcorn at Battery Park wasn’t bad today. Just ask my stomach, which is now quite full.
Merry almost Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all.
