In his feature film directorial debut, comedian Bo Burnham deftly encapsulates the awkwardness, angst, self-loathing and reinvention that a teenage girl goes through on the cusp of high school. Given that the 27-year-old stand-up comic achieved fame as a teenager himself through YouTube by riffing on his insecurities, he is uniquely capable as the film's writer and director to tell the story of Kayla, an anxious girl navigating the final days of her eighth grade year, despite creating a protagonist w female instead of male. Like Burnham did more than a decade ago, 13-year-old Kayla turns to YouTube to express herself, where she makes advice blogs in which she pretends to have it all together. In reality, Kayla is sullen and silent around her single father and her peers at school, carrying out most of her interactions with her classmates on Instagram and Twitter. Her YouTube videos are a clever narrative tool that provide insight into her inner hopes and dreams, much like an inspirational online diary. One of Eighth Grade's biggest triumphs is in its realism.

I found this movie to be somewhat of a personal favorite, and also one I enjoyed on a slow day. It's a strange type of film that seems to have its roots in a true story and to have been particularly popular during the 60s and 70s. This film is an adaptation of one of the most iconic pieces of literature ever. It is certainly not for everyone, and I had some difficulty following some of the events. Still, the film holds up well today. The performances are all fairly good, and it is extremely well-acted. It is also interesting to note that this is the first film that produced a hit for the Academy Awards, and then again for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. This is due to the fact that there was not a ton of acting competition in those years, so there was no competition for those awards. It also helps that it was a young, up-and-coming director, Gary Fleder, and I think he did a fantastic job, and his style of directing is very distinctive. The casting is really a lot of fun. Who could forget the character of "Mum?" If I had to pick a favorite, I would have to say "Goofy" Bob, but "Mum" was the standout in this film. Also, I enjoyed the whole situation where Bob decides to kill his sister, and he and his "good" sister are both in prison together. The story is also a lot of fun. You can tell how much thought went into the script, and there are also some really amusing and well-done sequences in this film. The ending is very good. I have to say that I really liked the ending, but some people may not, but I really enjoyed it. The ending is quite an interesting thing. It is a little bit unusual in the sense that you can really tell that these two characters were in a relationship that wasn't necessarily strong. It is also good to see the relationship between Mum and Dad. I have always enjoyed seeing them together. The performances are good, the script is very good, and the editing is great. It is also very good to see this film on the big screen. It is an important film to see if you are interested in film, because I think you can't really get the same sort of experience on television or DVD. This is one of those films that I would definitely recommend, but even for people who aren't interested in film, it is an important one. It is also a good example of what not to do with a story, and also a great example of how not to do with a story. The film is all about personal life, and the main character has his family life, but he also has his story. It is very interesting to see how everything fits together, but also how it doesn't. I'm glad this film was made, and it is very well-acted, but it is also a film that is not for everyone.

This movie is so funny. The casting was very good, the jokes are good and the acting is good, especially Elijah Wood. The special effects are pretty good, but the story isn't that interesting. I think this movie is more of a comedy than a drama. This is an interesting movie that will keep you laughing the whole time.

Everyone who says this movie sucks is in the wrong neighborhood. This movie is not a classic, but it is definitely not a bad movie. It is a nice little movie that doesn't fall into the typical cliche movies. This movie is fun and sweet and i would recommend it to any teen or teenager that loves a cute story.

I saw this movie in 1988 when I was 13 years old. I have never forgotten it. I watched it again and again. It's one of those movies that you remember. Then, years later, I happened to catch it on TV one night. I fell in love with it. It was even more enjoyable when I remembered it. I was surprised that it was that good. The kids were great and the actor who played Uncle Willy was amazing. I think this movie would be really good for teenagers, adults, and even adults who just can't get enough of movies with teenage characters. It also shows that sometimes a movie doesn't have to be some kind of adult movie to be good. As long as the movie is good, it doesn't matter what it's about.

This is one of the best films of the year. I think that it is an incredibly clever movie that goes beyond being a funny movie. This movie is so original and not really made for a common American audience. The actors did a fantastic job and the writing is superb. One of the most surprising things that I found about this film is that it is not at all exploitative in the sense that we see sex and nudity. The acting is top notch. I really loved this movie. It had so many funny moments that made me laugh and made me cry. This movie is one of the best movies of the year.

I'm not a huge fan of "kids movies" but I thought this movie was a little different. It was good, not great, but still good. It had a good story, good acting, a good plot and good direction. There were a few flaws, but that's a minor thing compared to the overall goodness of the movie. The movie was great and I'd recommend it. But don't expect to see a lot of gross-out humor, it's not for that audience. I give it a B+.

This is an absolutely excellent movie. I just finished watching it for the second time and I was already very interested in the story. I haven't seen a movie that touches me so deeply, and then put me in such a dark place as this one. It is one of the most realistic movies I have ever seen. And that's saying a lot. I didn't see it until it was released in theaters and was hooked to the movie. I'm a huge Quentin Tarantino fan, but I didn't think I'd like this movie as much as I did. I was right. I'm sure I'm going to buy this movie when it's available on DVD, but I wouldn't mind seeing it again just to make sure I really like it.

I don't know if it's a good movie or a bad movie, but the first part of the movie is so good that it's hard to see how they got it rated so low. It's a story about a 12-year-old boy named Mike (Ryan Reynolds) who is kidnapped by a gang of violent thugs and taken to the only place he's ever been to: the high school. Mike has a crush on one of his classmates named Grace (Eva Mendes) and he wants to try to win her heart. He gets in a lot of trouble from the gang members and even more trouble from Grace and her new boyfriend. This is a pretty good movie that's got some fun parts, some heart and some great acting. I like the fact that the movie is funny and the message is really important and it's even kind of heartwarming. The fact that they were able to get a 12-year-old boy to do all this stuff is amazing and I also like the fact that they weren't using a lot of blood and guts and things like that. I'm a big fan of Ryan Reynolds and I think this is one of his best movies, but I'm also a fan of Eva Mendes. She's very good in this movie. She's funny and sweet and she's a good actress. I also like how the movie is a little on the serious side, but it still has a good message. The music in this movie is also great. I also really like how it's set in the middle of nowhere. It's so easy to get lost in the forest and be a part of the whole world. It's a little bit of everything. It's a good movie, but I'd recommend it to people who are into movies and movies that are fun to watch. It's not the greatest movie ever made, but I really like this movie because it's an enjoyable movie.

The title may sound like a cliche, but it is actually a clever statement about the ambiguity of life and the ability to be in the moment. The movie is a must-see for any parent who wants to see their child succeed. The movie makes you feel as though you are there with your child, which is a huge benefit of watching it. While it is definitely not an amazing film, it is a great movie for parents to show their children. The characters are relatable, and the humor is at times hilarious. Overall, the movie was very entertaining, and it is definitely recommended for parents to watch.

F*ck this movie. OK, I'm not the biggest of fans of Pixar, but for this movie I was really impressed. It is a comedy and it is the most funniest I have ever seen. The funny part of the movie is that it's not serious, it's a parody, which is what it is meant to be. It is a movie with a lot of hidden messages. I don't think that I have ever seen a movie where the main character was actually a kid. I don't know how they can do it, but they do it and they are doing it with a lot of animation. It's so funny, it's just amazing. The animation is great. The characters are actually based on real people. They are so funny and they're so realistic. There are a lot of different characters, but they are all based on real people. You can see a lot of real people in this movie. The one thing that I like the most is the story. It's different, it's not normal, it's very interesting. It's a story that is not typical. I don't think that people should watch this movie, it is really funny, but I don't think that you should watch it, because it's a little bit sick. I'm not saying that it's funny, but it's good. It's just not usual. The movie is funny, but it's a little bit sick. But, it's a little bit funny.

It's great to see that a movie like "Wise Kids" still exists today. This movie is a good example of how to make a movie like this. There are many good actors in the movie, like Jack Black, John Travolta, Luke Wilson and Steve Buscemi. Most of the actors give great performances. The writing is also great. This is not just a comedy, but a drama as well. There are many good things about this movie, like the actors and the story. So, for me, it was a great film. I recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of movies like "Mean Girls", "The Breakfast Club", "Blazing Saddles" or "Mr. Deeds". I give this movie an 8/10.

I am no Roger Ebert. I'm no Joe Eszterhas. I'm no Oscar-winning critic. But I'm pretty sure I'm not in the minority when I say that I liked this movie. I don't think it's Oscar-worthy. I think it's a great movie. I think it's actually pretty good. The plot, which is well done, is an interesting take on adolescent life. There's really nothing revolutionary about it. It's something that a lot of people have been talking about for decades. But if you can get past the "hey, it's a movie, how bad can it be?" question, it's an interesting film. There's a couple of things that I was surprised about. I'm not one of those "not a fan of Lizzie McGuire" people. She's pretty cool, and it was interesting to see her in this role, in my opinion. But then, a lot of people will also see this as a coming of age film. I don't think that's the case. This is a great film about adolescence. And it is very mature. People who are 20, and 30, and 40, or even 50, have probably seen this film a million times, and it doesn't make them a teen anymore. So, if you are a teen, this is a film for you. If you are over 30, and even 50, then you probably know who Lizzie McGuire is, and you probably know what I'm talking about. If you don't, then you probably will like this film, but not too much. But I think this is a great movie for anyone over the age of 18. It's a great, intelligent film. I liked the acting and the writing. I thought it was pretty good. It was more of a coming of age film than a teen film, which is why I liked it so much. I think if you're looking for a film that is going to make you feel old, then you shouldn't see this film. I thought it was a pretty good movie.

The cast was superb. Michael Keaton, Chris Rock, and John Turturro, along with Kevin James and Mike Epps, were all terrific. The writing was sharp, sharp, sharp. I am still not sure what the director's comments were. The story had many parts that I could not tell what was going on. I do not remember much about the film after it ended. My favorite part was the part where the parents are having an argument and the son says, "You don't know what you're talking about!" I have read a few reviews where people say this film is racist or anti-Semitic. I have never heard of a story like that and it is not anti-Semitic. It is just a movie. But, there were some parts where it felt like the movie was going in a different direction. I would suggest you see this movie because it is a very entertaining movie. It was a very different movie than the "Rambo" movies. I think that was the point that it was trying to be. It did not have the humor of the "Rambo" movies. I give it a 7/10.

This is the first time I have watched an Adam Sandler film and I liked it. He does a good job as the protagonist of the film. Although the film is quite predictable at first, the twists and turns of the story kept me interested throughout. The plot is quite simple, but the main character (Adam Sandler) is a good guy and he is always the main character in the story. The performances were good, Adam Sandler is convincing as the protagonist. So I would recommend this film to all movie lovers. Rating: 7/10.

A hilarious look at the antics of elementary school students. Like the classic 80's B-movies, this one is filled with comedy and one liners that have been left untouched since the 70's. It's great to see how close to the original this movie is. The actors play their roles perfectly, and the characters are totally believable. Not as clever as the original, but still good enough. Seven out of 10.

I love the film. I always say I like it because it's really funny. I like the fact that it's not too serious and I think it's one of the funniest movies of all time. It's also one of the funniest films I've ever seen. It's not a really serious film at all. It's very lighthearted, very funny. I think that it's the most original movie I've ever seen. The actors in this film are really talented. They have really good chemistry together. I think that it's a very unique movie and it's a very original movie. It's also very funny. This movie is a really great film. I like it very much. I love the film. I love the actors in this film. I think that it's very good.

I was a big fan of this movie growing up and I'm glad that I watched it at a time when it was released on video. The thing that impressed me most about this movie was the characters, they were so unique and realistic and you could really feel for the characters. The jokes were great, but you didn't have to laugh a lot of the time. The ending was sad, but the rest of the movie was great. I have to admit that it was hard to sit through the first half of the movie. You know you have to, because of the humor, but the last half of the movie was just great. It's a movie that I would recommend to people who are into this type of movie. It is the type of movie that has a great message and isn't afraid to talk about relationships. I am glad that this movie came out at a time when it was released, because it is now one of my favorites. 7/10

The trailer for this movie said it would be a bad movie. Well, it is just bad! So, my thoughts about this movie? I thought it was a very funny movie. The acting was good, the story was not exactly original, but it was very funny. If you can't stand a comedy or a romantic comedy, this might not be your movie. I give this movie an 8/10. I would definitely recommend this movie to people who can't stand comedies or romances.

This is an extremely well made film. It has a very good cast of characters, and the actors pull off their roles extremely well. The film is a little slow in some spots, but it's still worth watching.

As a child, I remember how my parents tried to keep me away from the movies. That is, until I was old enough to be capable of taking the movies in for my own enjoyment. Then I watched the eighth grade film "The Newsroom". One of the most relevant things about the movie was the way it was shot. This is not a film about journalism. This is a film about how the news media was affected by the "news." It shows that when news is about the most important things in life, people will act differently. This movie also shows that a news reporter and his boss can be rivals. The movie also shows that a great many people have a very different opinion on what is newsworthy and what is not. The movie also shows that reporters have a lot to learn about the news media. I personally think that this movie is an excellent example of how a movie can be good and a good movie can be bad.

The movie is very good and has a good script. My daughter saw it and she liked it very much. It is a really good movie. It is an adult movie and a good one at that. The actors are really good and they played their roles well. I am a big fan of Taylor Schilling and I liked him in the movie too. The movie has some jokes in it but they are not too much. The movie is very good and you should see it. It is also very funny and I really like it.
