(2019) (Kaityln Dever, Beanie Feldstein) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: Two high school seniors, who've neglected their social lives in order to get good grades, decide to attend a wild party the night before graduation.
- It's the day before graduation, and Amy (KAITLYN DEVER) and Molly (BEANIE FELDSTEIN) are best friends who've pretty much neglected their high school social lives in order to get good grades and be accepted into the best colleges. Thus, Molly, who's the class president, is floored when she learns that the likes of heavy partygoers such as Nick (MASON GOODING), Theo (EDUARDO FRANCO) and Annabelle (MOLLY GORDON) a.k.a. "Triple A" (so named for the promiscuous roadside "assistance" she provides high school boys) have also been accepted into similar colleges.
Accordingly, she convinces Amy that they must attend a big party Nick is throwing and cut loose for once. The only problem is that they don't know where it's being held and thus accidentally end up on a yacht owned by uber-rich classmate Jared's (SKYLER GISONDO) family. The only other student present is wild girl Gigi (BILLIE LOURD) who somehow manages to end up everywhere Amy and Molly do for the rest of the night.
After a series of other mishaps and wrong turns -- including when they get a ride from Principal Brown (JASON SUDEIKIS) who moonlights as a ridesharing driver and accidentally end up high after another encounter with Gigi -- they call their cool teacher Miss Fine (JESSICA WILLIAMS) who gives them a ride to the party. There, and while Theo hits on that teacher, Molly hopes to get Nick interested in her just as Amy tries to do with Ryan (VICTORIA RUESGA), a girl she hopes is a lesbian like her, unaware that Hope (DIANE SILVERS) is the one who actually has a thing for her.
With things not going as they planned and hoped for, the two friends must maneuver their way through the night and those expectations, not to mention making sure they get to graduation the next day.
