TheWrap - Yolanda Machado
Booksmart is, by far, one of the most perfect coming-of-age comedies I have ever seen.
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
The best comedy of its kind since "Superbad," Wilde’s slick, unpredictable romp can sometimes feel like several movies at once. This riotous, candy-colored celebration of sisterhood is so dense with anarchic developments it often threatens to collapse into itself, but avoids lingering on any gag long enough to let that happen.
The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
A hilarious, blazingly paced teen comedy.
Variety - Peter Debruge
Not since “Superbad” has a high school comedy so perfectly nailed how exhilarating it feels to act out at that age ... In this year’s class of first-time feature directors, Wilde handily earns the title of Most Likely to Succeed.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - Emily Yoshida
What makes Booksmart land so delightfully is Wilde’s handle on exactly how seriously to take her neurotic heroines. ... Booksmart manages to be inclusive and progressive, without being precious about anything or sacrificing an ounce of humor. It feels at once like a huge moment for the teen movie genre, and also effortless, effortless enough to make one wonder what took so long.

Booksmart (2019)
