Emma Roberts Best Film Of Her Career Till Date (by FilmMan47)
I found out about this film few months ago people were talking about it when i heard that John Cusack & Emma Roberts are in it i decide to watch it and believe me Emma is really the best actress she has proved it here. the script is filled with almost everything you need in a dialog oriented comedy film the direction by Scott Coffey is wonderful the characters chemistry is very high never for one second you feel the pace is gone not a single dull moment the lines in this film are extremely funny it will stick to you for a long time its not a sex comedy its a very deep film with strong <more>
messages.The Plot:Amy just graduated from college she wants to be a poet but gets a job at sex shop her obsession with writer Rat Billings works for her as she gets to be his protégé.The Cast:i don't know what to say if it wasn't for this great cast i would have never saw this John Cusack,Evan Peters,Armando Riesco did their best but the show stealer is Emma Roberts she outclasses everyone with her brilliant performance i don't know why she is not famous she is highly underrated just have to love whatever she is in she made me laugh out so much then any other film in Roberts career this film will go down as her best.If you get bored watching this means you don't understand what its about beyond the jokes and all the funny poetry there are hidden meanings all the discussion between Amy & Billings are really amazing eye opener for everyone i have always said this that films don't need critical reception i am a audience member and can proudly say this is a audience entertainer plus a new age classic.Overall I Loved Adult World 2013 For What It Was You Will Too My Rating For This Masterpiece Is 10/10.A Must See Film:Highly Recommended.
I have loved Emma Roberts since I first saw her in Aquamarine. I was about 8, and it was my favorite movie. Then in Nancy Drew, and the show she had on Nickelodeon. As I grew up her characters became better and better for me. I loved her as Noelle in It's Kind Of A Funny Story, Molly in Twelve, and as Grace in Valentines Day. She was great as Sally in The Art of Getting by, and obviously amazing as Madison in American Horror Story. Emma Roberts always seems to pop up in all of my favorite movies, and now I am adding Adult World to the list. This movie was honestly one of the best movies I <more>
have ever seen in my life. Showing a good, young girl being exposed to the real world. She has an interesting journey, and I loved the ending. The movie had serious moments, and other moments where I was laughing out loud. I promise you, if you watch Adult World, you will not regret it. And I mean, It has Evan Peters in it. Can anything really be that bad if it has Evan Peters in it?
Oh, I loved this movie at first. I can say, it's a unusual movie of Cusacks. I found it very interesting, a little bit similar to other Roberts movies, which is good. I like her acting in this movie, she's really great actress, so natural and also so extraordinary. You just watch her movies enjoyable. This movie is so real, imaging reality like how it really is. It's like a fan is meeting his hero,star or whatever it could be, in this case we say it's Rat Billings John Cusack . But it's surprising that writer accepts the idea of hers, and let her to be his <more>
"protege". So it's very funny and interesting story going on. Moreover I can really praise Armando Riesco Rubia acting, he was made for that role, that South American accent, manners... All was looking so real like he really is transsexual. Evan was also great, everyone was in their places where it should be,everyone was just incredible. It wouldn't be wrong if I tell that this role is the best John Cusack role ever. Really worth seeing it. And I give for this masterpiece 20 of 10.
it's so touching. it's like describe my whole life, actually what my life right now. living in the world that i thought is full of stupid but actually the stupid is me. don't realize the actual world is here. and i am mess up with this world.i truly believe in my dream. this movie teach me a lot. a lot of stuff. and the point is, that is the adult world mean? leave immediately the dream that never bring you any where. this movie ending is priceless. why you don't give the sad ending that really tell what actually adult world end? of course with desperate and hopeless. <more>
Adult World I won't necessarily call a coming of age film, but more so a wakeup call. (by Amari-Sali)
Adult World is one of the many films I wanted to see at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival that I was unable to. But, in Adult World's case, it wasn't a timing issue, but more so the fact it was sold out. A year later though it has become available, and with Emma Roberts just ending a season, with Evan Peters who is also in the movie, of American Horror Story I thought this film became available at a very opportune time.Characters & Story Amy Emma Roberts has lead a very privileged life. She grew up in a middle class family, of which both parents are still together; she is their <more>
only child; got good grades in school and was in the 97th percentile when it came to her SATs; and yet the thing she really wants, to become a big time poet, alludes her. Why you may ask? Well, because her writing is sort of, I wouldn't say shallow, but it seems like her love for the great's influence her work to the point it sounds like she is mimicking more than expressing her own feelings.And she isn't the only one who thinks her writing isn't that good. She spends tons of money sending off her writing, and this is despite student loan debt. So, with her parents cutting her off, she ends up in Adult World, a XXX store run by an elderly couple one of which is Cloris Leachman and Alex Evan Peters . But, while Adult World may pay the bills, a good portion of the film deals with Amy trying to gain the admiration of Rat Billings John Cusack who, from the start, shows hardly any interest in her writing. However, through him she gets her wakeup call, and also with the help of Rubia Armando Riesco she finds herself finally learning that all the childhood praise, awards, grades, and etc., don't mean a damn thing in the adult world.PraiseWhat I liked about this film the most is the story. There has been a lot of talk about dubbing this generation "Generation ME" and this film sort of shows how the mindset is developed. You set a person up thinking that everything they do needs a plated gold trophy; tell them they are the best, can do anything; and have them believe getting good grades can lead them to success; and then they become an adult and realize that dreams rarely come true. Hell, if you can even get a glimpse of your dream in reality you are lucky. And with that, you see Roberts play a 20 something who slowly becomes disenchanted and has that moment a lot of young people have when they transition into the adult world. This includes slight depression as you think your dreams are dying; realizing that the only job you can get, or are qualified for, is the type of place you only end up due to desperation; and that the people you look up to, more often than not, can't really help you. And, outside of that, what I liked about the film is that the progression is all about her learning to adapt. Which isn't easy, at all, but thanks to friends, co- workers, and her family to a point, she finds a way to make it.CriticismLeaving only the slightest bit of criticism, which there isn't too much of. The first issue I had was that Rubia isn't really given a lot of time to be her own person. For the most part, she is just this sassy trans-gendered character who plays the role of pushing Amy toward something. And, with this being a indie movie, you sort of expect that with a small cast everyone would be able to be given a meaty role since no one here is an A-list star, or at least anymore. But, really that was my main issue, though, for some, Roberts could get on your nerves since her character is very bougie and seemingly a child who whines at the drop of a hat. That critique though is more aimed at the character than Roberts though.Overall: TV ViewingThough a likable film, it is not one which really stands out. For while it has a good cast, good story, and is easy to follow, it just doesn't have anything which makes it really become something you must see. For while its depiction of Generation ME and the issues of transitioning into adult hood are interesting, it isn't dramatic enough to really make you emphasize with Roberts, nor funny, really in anyway. Hence why I say it is just a TV Viewing type of movie.
There once was a girl from New York Who had never been porked She worked at a job Selling plastic knobs Then she lost it all to a dorkBilly Collins said we all have about 200 bad poems in us. Middle school and high school is a good time to get it out of our system. Amy Emma Roberts has about 20,000 bad poems in her and thinks she is good. She majored in poetry acquiring no jobs skills, setting back her parents $90,000. Depressed she moves out and gets a job at Adult World and hangs out with a crowd of fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Local poet Rat Billings John Cusack is her idol and she <more>
forces herself, to his dismay, into his life.The film is another luke warm indie dying to be clever and finding an audience, which it has among would be poets. Amy's dreary life is symbolized by the dreary scenes of a depressed urban area in upstate New York. The actors saved a bad script. The use of a cross dressing gay Armando Riesco was funny in "The World According to Garp," but now it just shows lack of writing skill and originality which is what I really want in an indie.
I won free pass to Tribeca. It was awesome. I saw Robert DeNiro in the crowd, at least I think it was him. But he got me so exited for this movie. I had not heard of it, so expect didn't know. But it turns out to be very funny. Amy is Emma Roberts, he plays her well. She is so cute and funny. It makes her play her well. John Cuesack is also funny but not as cute but I like him to. The story is worth watching so I won't tell it to you. It is funny so I think you should see it. I hope it plays in every theater. But I do not know if commercials are playing. I saw none. I watch TV and I <more>
did not see it. Remember when you make up your mind to go see it.
Emma Roberts and Armando Riesco become bonafide stars in Scott Coffey's wonderful comedy... (by ClaytonDavis)
There are always films that seem to define the youth of the decade. In the 1980s, you can make an argument for any of the "rat pack" movies but I remain the closest to John Hughes' The Breakfast Club 1985 . In the 1990s, the hilarious and raunchy American Pie 1999 that bookended a great decade of dramatic and comedic cinema. Scott Coffey's newest endeavor Adult World starring the talented and adorable Emma Roberts is a touching and uproariously entertaining comedy about a recent college graduate Amy that believes she's destined to be the next great poet. When things <more>
don't go in her favor, Amy gets a job at an adult book store called "Adult World." Written by Andy Cochran, who has written episodes for MTV's "Teen Wolf" and "Super Sweet 16: The Movie," the first-time movie screenwriter assembles an assortment of creative and unique characters with genuine deeds that feel credible and realistic. Director Coffey does a commendable job transporting the audience through the story , inserting varieties of colors, beats, and instances of emotional connection. It's one of the best films seen at the Tribeca Film Festival and could one of the crowd-pleasing films of the year upon release.Emma Roberts, best known for her whimsical turns in films like Nancy Drew 2007 and Scream 4 2011 , charms the pants off the audience in her role of Amy. Roberts is head-over-heels hilarious and manages to capture the hearts of all. It's an interesting conundrum that Roberts creates for the viewer, as her piercing voice that should make you pull your hair out, manages to be her supernatural fairy dust that magnetizes our cinematic senses to her cutesy persona. It's a performance that will define her as a capable leading lady with a possible Golden Globe mention to prove the theory down the road in awards season. Roberts is completely lovable. Roberts cannot take all the credit as the terrific cast that surrounds her are just as remarkable. As the awkward and misanthropic poet Rat Billings, John Cusack delivers one of his better works as of late. Playing extremely well off of Roberts, Cusack's character choices and mannerisms are simply comic genius. Taking a break from the creepy, serial killer that we have grown to love about Evan Peters on FX's "American Horror Story," he plays the sensitive and charming Alex with wonderful restrain. Completely stealing the show and delivering my favorite supporting turn of the year so far is Armando Riesco. Best known for his brief roles in Garden State 2004 and Che 2008 , as the flamboyant and lovable Rubia, Riesco commands the screen and steals focus from every actor on set. It's a memorable and dedicating turn by an actor that was in need of a big break into the hearts of viewers. I believe he's found it.Adult World is a must-see comedy. Heartwarming and beautifully tender, the only flaw the film suffers is being a smidge too long. One of the great things that the Tribeca Film Festival offers, Adult World is an absolute delight.Read More @ The Awards Circuit http://www.awardscircuit.com
Delightfully out of the box no pun intended (by StevePulaski)
There is a scene in Scott Coffey's Adult World involving a transgender male and a devout and somewhat psychotic poet riding a bike made for two chasing after an elusive poet who is speeding away in a car so that the psychotic poet can make another attempt at talking to her biggest influence and showing just how weirdly intrusive she can be.Stating that scene and that scene only to a person would make them think said film is nothing but a desperate little comedy, when in reality, Adult World is another one of those films that is actually wise and thoughtful but dressed up in stupid <more>
people's clothes. Seems I'm running into this unfortunate predicament a lot. The problem with this kind of filmmaking tactic, whether it's intentional or unintentional, is that it has the potential of alienating those who need to see the film the most.The film focuses on a recent college graduate named Amy Emma Roberts, whom I never tired of seeing . A poetry major who has racked up over $90k in student loans, Amy wishes she could make a living verbalizing whatever comes to her mind and carry on with a relatively safe but fulfilling life. However, reality - and her parents - prohibit this dream from happening, so Amy must get a real job, and with little options, she accepts a job at Adult World, the local provider of vibrators, sex dolls, pornographic movies, sex toys, lube, etc.Amy is repulsed at first, as she's always kind of sheltered herself from the icky realms of human pleasure and sexual exploration, but she quickly befriends the charming Alex Evan Peters , who shares some of her interests as well as her circumstances. Amy, however, is desperate in trying to win the attention of Rat Billings John Cusack , one of her favorite poets who has recently come to town. She pesters Rat, constantly invading his privacy and bugging him, until he offers her a position as his assistant at Syracuse University.The three main actors rarely misstep in their performances, however, the character of Amy is definitely skating on thin ice in terms of acceptability. Amy, when by herself or with Alex, is fine, but when she's in the company of Rat, she becomes obsessive, hyper, and borderline psychotic. The problem with that is not only is that this side of her is annoying but it lessens her realism as this fanatical behavior is not the kind you'd think she'd be doing. It's almost like she suffers from multiple-personality disorder.And again, there's a sort of convention to the material, despite the film's characters being relatively unique. Then there's a transgender character that is nothing more than a character to have to muster up some shock amongst audience members. But the thing that sets Adult World apart from other dramas is that it doesn't hesitate to explore the blessing and the curse that is being creative in contemporary America. In a country that is advanced predominately by scientific, mathematical, and technological milestones and achievements, opportunities, let alone viable ones, for liberal arts, poets, English, or writers are scarce. It's almost as if in an increasingly complex world, those who attempt to define it aren't wanted. It's a sad fact and Adult World pleasantly recognizes it, giving us a likable protagonist who is good at what she does - confident, amiable, and always friendly - but burdened by a lack of opportunities. She has bravely majored in poetry, but is now facing reality in that the only potentially-lucrative job for her is a published author, but good luck getting someone to read your work. And, oh yeah, here's a bill near six-figures for that college education too.I plan on attending college this fall as an English major with a minor in a business field, perhaps marketing. I'm completely unsure of where those fields will get me and those like me are probably equally unsure. Adult World is a film for those types of people to see - people who know what they want to be, know what they like, and have found a passion at a young age, but are tragically low on opportunities. Starring: Emma Roberts, John Cusack, and Evan Peters. Directed by: Scott Coffey.
