The Spectacular Now will get under your skin and stay there. Full Review
The movie wasn't smart enough to deal with the interesting protagonists it started with, and so it reverted to trope. Full Review
[A] culturally astute drama, spiked with enough comedy to make it splendidly intoxicating to watch.
Los Angeles Times
Much of this patiently achieved success flows from Miles Teller's winning, seemingly effortless performance as Sutter, in all his laziness and charm, open-mindedness and fatalism, always with a glimpse of the unease beneath.
New York Times
Tim Tharp's unsentimental tale of adolescent frustration comes to the screen in this comedy-drama following the story of a sociable high-school senior whose self-delusion shattered by his emerging friendship with an unpopular classmate. Sutter Keely is one of the most popular kids in his class. Outgoing and fun-loving, he's completely oblivious as to what awaits him beyond high school. Lately, however, his drinking has started to become a problem. So when Sutter's girlfriend breaks things off, he reaches for the bottle without hesitation. Awakening in the grass under the gaze of studious, practical-minded sci-fi nerd Aimee Finicky, he isn't quite sure how he got into such a predicament. Over time, however, the two teens who couldn't be any more different on the surface realize they have more in common than either ever suspected. Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead star.
