      Justin Lowe Hollywood Reporter It's really more about the ability of Adrianna DiLonardo's script to elicit humor and surprise as the narrative unfolds, but instead it hews principally to predictability. May 6, 2020 Full Review Valerie Anne Autostraddle Almost Adults is really fun to watch. And it flips the script on a lot of classic lesbian movie tropes. May 6, 2020 Full Review Sarah Marloff Austin Chronicle Is it a life-altering movie? Probably not, but that doesn't make it any less relatable or enjoyable to watch. May 6, 2020 Full Review Casey Reid That Shelf What makes Almost Adults refreshing is that it's reflexive of contemporary queer culture, albeit white centric, in a way that signals a shift in queer cinema. May 6, 2020 Full Review Deborah Krieger Bust Magazine Almost Adults is a clear labor of love and prompts some genuine laugh-out-loud moments, even if the momentum disappears in the second half of the narrative.

      Audience Member The only thing worse than the contrived writing is the acting. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Full of gay tropes, bad music and overacting. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review barry m Refreshingly honest portrayal of best friends whose friendship takes a surprising turn. The dialogue seemed real throughout, as were the actions of the major protagonists. Some people might dismiss it (or praise it) as a "lesbian movie," but I think these characters are relatable to anybody, no matter what their orientation or lack thereof. One of the hallmarks of a good movie is whether you care about the characters--and I cared about all of them. Nothing dramatic, no car chases, no stirring music at key moments, just a nice little film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An LGBT film that did not necessary present the difficulties that one had to face about coming out. Film of a friendship that was bumpy, yet long-lasting which to me seemed true. The story was a little bland, but nice to watch for the first time. The actresses were each beautiful in the movie, with Mackenzie showing some moments of explosion with her acting. Cassie's role did show a contrast, but not as broad as expected in the film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member I've watched this movie many times and always find something new to love about it. I definitely recommend it for anyone in the LGBTQ+ community or anyone who just wants a good story. Also, the acting is raw and makes you feel what the characters feel. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Has potential but gets lost in the middle. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/19 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
