Elsie Fisher is convincingly awkward as a 13-year-old in her last week of middle school. There have been other movies to tackle this self-conscious, gawky time, but this may be the most authentic (and the most social media conscious). Even though most of the student actors look/act like they’re really adolescents, that doesn’t make it a good film. Sure, there are astute observations and clumsy interactions, but the character’s painful discomfort becomes tedious (and is seldom amusing). The age-appropriate members of the audience hooted at the “comedy” and verbally exclaimed “awwww” in sympathy, but despite the genuine moments, the film felt flat and tedious.
