Trailer Review by Matthew Muccia
Soon after her divorce a fiction writer travels back to her home town of Minnesota. Gorgeous as Charlize Theron is, in Young Adult she more resembles her character in Monster than lets say…The Legend of Bagger Vance.
Meet the female version of Hank Moody…
Soaked in alcohol and delusions Theron’s character, Mavis, wishes to re-obtain her ex, Buddy Slade (played by Patrick Wilson), who she believes is “made for her”. Truthful or Delusional is another argument, Mavis believes that she is made for this man and is filled with regret. Some may say this is a cliche for writer caricatures, but the arena for Comedy is huge.
Reflection is shown with an old class-mate from high school, played by Patton Oswalt. Instant one liners are overflowing. Check out this instant comedy classic from Paramount Pictures Inc. at Apple trailers: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/paramount/youngadult/
