Very funny film! I was a little unsure at first, with the slow motion impact music cutaways that have been done to death on Brooklyn 99. But the writing was really sharp and surprising, excellently delivered.

It reminded me quite a lot of Blockers. Go see if you enjoyed!

Saw this tonight at a pretty full Wimbledon Odeon. A pretty awful, stereotypical teen film with a predictable plot, under-developed characters and where nothing really happens. There was lots of screaming, sexual innuendo but with very little comedy. A few walkouts in the first 30 mins (I was also tempted but it would have been too disruptive for the other people in my row!). If you’re a teenager then go and see it, you might find it funny – otherwise I would recommend giving it a miss. 1/10

Yay. I was beginning to think that I was the only person who disliked this. Glad to see I'm not. I certainly won't be boosting box office by seeing it on release with my Limitless card. Once was more than enough.

An original take on the high school movie. Strong female leads and diverse cast without the usual easy stereotypes. No walkouts at my cinema (Birmingham) but lots of laughs.

Me too. I absolutely loathed it. Thought I was the only one as my screening was in stitches throughout.
Couldn't wait for it to end. I can't believe it has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 104 out of 105 critics.

I'm always suspicious when a film appears to be universally loved and has almost top scores on film sites. There isn't a single film that doesn't have detractors.
