  • Upon returning to her small Minnesota hometown to win back her high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson), now a happily-married father, divorced young adult fiction author Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron) forges an unexpected bond with another former schoolmate (Patton Oswalt) who's had a particularly difficult life. JUNO collaborators Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody re-team for this Paramount Pictures production.

  • 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

    "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..."

    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

    "[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 - "With a black wit and a bracingly hard-boiled heart, YOUNG ADULT is pithy and pitiless -- adult comedy through and through."

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

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