I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“Young Adult”: Charlize Theron Is Quiet, Quirky, and Has A PUPPYYYYY!!!!!

with one comment

There’s not much I can say about this trailer because it just…is. I can’t write a pithy hook or anything. It’s not boring, it’s just…nice.

In Young Adult, Charlize Theron plays Mavis Beacon I mean, Mavis Gary, who writes teen novels. She comes back to her hometown, finds that high school sweetheart Patrick Wilson is married with children, so she tries get him back. Oh, and she also dates Patton Oswalt. That’s pretty much it. This is less zany than a romantic comedy (and that’s not a bad thing).

The movie has a pretty good pedigree: it’s directed by Jason Reitman, who also did Thank You for Smoking, Up in the Air, and (I didn’t know this) an SNL sketch called “Death by Chocolate”. Additionally, it’s written by Diablo Cody, famous for penning Juno and Jennifer’s Body.

Patton Oswalt is funny and it’s nice to see just a “quiet” movie for a change instead of big-budget actioners or even a thriller. One other thing I love about this trailer are the scenes in which Theron converses with the Hampton Inn girl and the assistant at Macy’s. I could just watch two hours of Charlize Theron interacting with clerks and attendants at various shopping establishments.

Young Adult hits theaters soon.
