Adult Life Skills (2019)


Critic Consensus: Adult Life Skills covers familiar territory, but an endearingly quirky story -- and starring turn from Jodie Whittaker -- make this coming-of-age comedy well worth a watch.

Sweet but less oddball than it thinks.

Whittaker is easily the best thing about the movie. When the script fails in its attempts to flesh out Anna's character, Whittaker comes to the rescue. She can be funny, profane, dour, and heartbreaking. Oh, and quirky.

By the time I had finished watching the aggressively whimsical British comedy "Adult Life Skills," my eyes had rolled so far back in my head I could barely focus.

"Adult Life Skills" is a relentlessly quirky British comedy-drama that demonstrates why more is not always more.

Whittaker is real and likeable, and there are some very funny lines.

I can't imagine a person experienced with offbeat English-language films of the last ten years not seeing much that's familiar in Adult Life Skills, but it's a lovely movie with some very good performances and it makes some very good choices.
