I loved the part where Emma Roberts gets excited hearing one of her poems is getting published in a book and goes crazy turning on and off the light switch!
Evan Peters.You know what I mean?Evan Peters.
I was expecting a little more from this film but I can't say that I am totally unsatisfied. It's not great but it's not a bad also. It was a sweet little coming of age film.
Adult World tells us the story of Amy, a young woman that just finished college and her biggest dream since ever is to be a famous poet. She spend a lot of her parents money on the pursuit of her dream, so her parents told her that she couldn't continue to live like that and she needs to find a job. After being rejected in some places she finally finds a job at a sex shop called Adult World. But she never gave up on her dream, she starts stalking one of her favorite writers persuading him to be his protege.
The main reason why I wanted to see this film actually was because I saw John Cusack's name associated with it and he has a great lunatic performance but who really surprised me afterall was Emma Roberts. She had a great performance, very natural and funny.
All of the characters have very unique personalities but I think the supporting characters should have had more time on screen and they were underused. One of the other problems with it is that at the end we feel like something was missing. Amy certainly learned a lesson but it leads us to a point that we're already counting on.
