  • Critic Reviews
    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hile Theron's fearless performance is admirable and gutsy, it's Patton Oswalt's turn as her former classmate Matt that is the hands-down stand-out of the entire film."
    Box Office

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[Oswalt is] the key to the film's success. Theron is flawless at playing a cringe-inducing monster....Oswalt's Matt is human, realistic, sardonic and self-deprecating."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "When it's done right, as it is in YOUNG ADULT, there is something absolutely mesmerizing about watching a train wreck unfold on screen. Theron and Oswalt turn out to be a terrific odd couple."
    Los Angeles Times

    "YOUNG ADULT shrouds its brilliant, brave and breathtakingly cynical heart in the superficial blandness of commercial comedy."
    New York Times

    "[W]ith Theron doing the impossibly heavy lifting of making a woman inclined to selfishness, irresponsibility and condescension somehow worth our time and interest..."
    Movieline

    "[A] one-of-a-kind comedy....YOUNG ADULT bumps along with nasty swerves, middle finger proudly in the air, toward and ending blessedly free of anything warm, fuzzy, or optimistic." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Winningly played by Patton Oswalt, misfit Matt serves as the picture's conscience..."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 - "With a black wit and a bracingly hard-boiled heart, YOUNG ADULT is pithy and pitiless -- adult comedy through and through."
    Uncut

    "YOUNG ADULT is much funnier and infinitely more savage than Cody's earlier collaboration with director Jason Reitman....Mavis's wickedness is deliriously refreshing..."
