2016 movie viewings #3: Adult World.

(For all my 2016 movie reviews, click the "movies2016" label at the end of this entry, or just "movies" for every movie write-up I've ever done.)

2016 movie viewings, #3: Adult World. ONE STAR. A movie about a 22-year-old girl with a poetry degree who gets a job at an adult bookstore to make ends meet, written by someone who apparently has never read a poem, has never been inside an adult bookstore, and has never met a 22-year-old girl. Featuring characterizations so bad as to be actively embarrassing to even watch -- including a poetry-major college graduate who has never done drugs, has never met a gay person, and is so embarrassed by adult toys that she throws them in the air and runs screaming from the building when she accidentally picks one up -- how this POSSIBLY attracted the likes of Emma Roberts, Evan Peters and especially John Cusack is way beyond me.
