Youth Adult Blu-ray

Remember that awful girl from high school? How you always thought that deep down inside she was a sad, mean-spirited person? How she would eventually might grow up and learn her lesson? Charlize Theron's character in "Young Adult," Mavis Gary, is just like that first part.

As Mavis Gary lounges in her Hello Kitty T-shirt, swigging a 2-liter of Diet Coke for breakfast while the Kardashians drone in the background, it's clear the title "Young Adult" (out today in limited release) refers not just to Mavis' occupation as a teen-lit author, but to the protagonist herself, whom at the age of 30-something, has never quite grown up. And she doesn't apologize for it.

The Diablo Cody-penned, Jason Reitman-directed comedy follows Mavis as she returns home to Mercury, Minnesota, to win back her high-school sweetheart Buddy Slade (played by Patrick Wilson), who's now married with a newborn baby. But, again, Mavis doesn't care too much about that. The film is a hilarious (and at times cringe-inducing) tale of perpetual adolescence that you won't want to miss. Here are five reasons to see "Young Adult."



Mavis Gary, Charlize Theron's character in the upcoming comedy "Young Adult," isn't the nicest person you'll ever meet. In fact, she won't even try that hard to convince you otherwise.

In this new exclusive clip from the Jason Reitman film, Mavis, a successful author of YA novels, has traveled to her hometown to win back her high school sweetheart, when she meets Matt Freehauf, played by Patton Oswalt, in a bar.

Young Adult

It seems that Oscar-winner Charlize Theron's writer character, Mavis, has returned to her small hometown none the wiser in the new trailer for "Young Adult."

Lap dog in tow, Mavis, sporting a Hello Kitty t-shirt, is pretty much the queen of denial. The former "girl you hated in high school" comes home, despite how "gross" it makes her feel, with a big mission. One that seems to perplex everyone, but her. The tagline for "Young Adult" really sums it all up: "Everyone gets older, not everyone grows up."



Josh Brolin loves himself some "Goonies." Just yesterday I reported that he told MTV's Josh Horowitz about the now-finished Steven Spielberg-directed, Aaron Sorkin-scripted "Goonies 2." Now he's talking about "Goonies 3"?!?! Clearly we live in bizarro world. First though, he puts to rest a rumor that he'll have a role in Jason Reitman's upcoming reunion with "Juno" writer Diablo Cody, "Young Adult."

"Not true," Brolin said of the rumor. "No. He and I may do something else. I think that's where the wires crossed. He was very apologetic [after the rumor cropped up]. But I did read [the script] and thought it was great. I think Charlize [Theron] is going to be amazing." Read More...

Still riding on the success of "Juno," for which she won a screenwriting Oscar, Diablo Cody is reuniting with that film's producers for a new film she's written titled "Young Adult." According to THR's Risky Biz Blog, the comedy does not involve young adults but rather a thirtysomething author of the YA literary genre. Recently divorced, the character returns to the town she grew up in and links back up with "the one who got away," despite the fact he's now a husband and a father.

The "Juno" reunion for this homewrecker story consists of Cody, Mandate Pictures (and its head, Nathan Kahane) and producers John Malkovich, Lianne Halfon, Russell Smith and Mason Novick. The last of these re-teaming collaborators also worked with the writer on the disappointing "Jennifer's Body" and is attached as a producer on her upcoming (or least set-up) projects "Girly Style," "Breathers: A Zombie's Lament" and the YA series adaptation "Sweet Valley High."
