The Spectacular Now was quite likable but not as great nor different as I was hoping. The R-rated teen film is far better and more appropriate than any other R-rated teen films right now. That being said, it's your typical girl meets boy, boy changes girl, boy falls for girl and becomes a couple, couple gets in a fight, girl forgives boy kind of movie but it's not a comedy, it's a romantic drama with high school teen issues. Nothing really new here and nothing really spectacular about it, however, the two leads Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley played teenagers very realistically, the acting was spot-on and the story is worthy so I give it 3.5 stars. Here we meet popular, alcoholic party boy Sutter Keely (Miles Teller) who gets his heart broken by his perfect long time girlfriend Cassidy (Brie Larson) and gets incredibly drunk one evening and finds himself passed out on someones front lawn, he is woken up in the morning by sweet faced Aimee (Shailene Woodley), a plain high school girl doing her paper delivery. They bond and are soon hanging out together on a regular basis and getting to know more about each other like Sutter's idea of living in the now, who knows where life will take him. He tries to change Aimee by getting her to drink like him and not be afraid to use coarse language. Finally, Sutter kisses Aimee and a relationship blossoms, but Sutter is Aimee's first boyfriend. Sutter takes her with him to meet his estranged father whom he learns isn't quite what he was expecting and true emotions start to surface. There is a lot of drinking throughout because Sutter is an alcoholic, spiking his every drink with alcohol and even has Aimee develop the same habit. There is also drinking and driving on some occasions and smoking. The language includes lots of f-words in various forms (I'd say about 20), also uses of sh*t, @sshole, hell, d@mn, p*ssy, plenty of religious exclamations like Godd@mn, Christ's sake, oh-my-God, Jesus...etc. Violence includes some family arguments and situations, teen driving while drunk and almost crashing and a character gets hit by a bus and she ends up in the hospital. Sexual content includes a quick flashback scene of a characters girlfriend thrusting on top of him during sex but not explicit. A girl sleeps with her boyfriend for the first time - we see them undress on a bed, he puts on a condom and rolls on top of her (the scene is a bit lengthy but not explicit showing a partial breast). A character tells his shy friend that he'll get him some "sweet, sweet action" as he tries to hook him up with girls. Some other remarks throughout. References to a father cheating on his wife while married. Older teens will most definitely enjoy this movie as much as some adults...I'd recommend it to ages 15 and up only.
