Not since John Hughes’ 1985 classic The Breakfast Club has a movie captured the emotional struggle that is high school as strikingly and profoundly as The Perks of Being a Wallflower does.

Everyone seems to have their own story arc to follow as the season comes to it’s conclusion. There is so much going on that it is incredibly difficult to condense it into any kind of Reader’s Digest version of a recap. This rundown is for true fans who need to know all the details. My [...]
When it comes to actual sex in a teen sex comedy, words speak louder than actions. That much is definitely true in the rude, ribald British comedy The Inbetweeners, a film that exhausts all its synonyms for human genitalia within the first 15 minutes. (Our transatlantic cousins are second-to-none in creating euphemisms for “vagina.”) Look [...]
