  • James Ponsoldt's funny and touching coming-of-age tale covers old ground with disarming freshness. show more

  • A movie of uns — unforced, unhurried, unpretentious. Though it's sometimes underdramatized, this story of adolescents on the brink of adulthood is refreshingly, and endearingly, unlike the overheated features that have come to define the genre. show more

  • The Spectacular Now feels genuine in almost every respect, from the unflashy cinematography and the sparingly deployed music cues to the natural, unhurried performances of its two stars. They will get to you, truly. show more

    WORST OF THE WORST! Walked out after forty five minutes! A waste of money and time!

    This reminded me of Lost in Translation (Bill Murray 2003). It was realistic, but NOT entertaining. Now I know why I never went back to MHS reunions.
