Senior Year (2022) -- S: Wilson, Chao, Hartley, Richardson, Silverstone -- Netflix








After a cheerleader (Rebel Wilson) falls off a pyramid and into a 20 year coma, she wakes up as a 37-year-old woman, ready to return to high school, regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her.

This is out today.

Reviews aren't great: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/senior_year

It has a really good supporting cast though...

Stupid concept but Rebel Wilson is fun enough to watch that I may check it out.

And not to sound like a former DVDTalk member but it being rated ĎRí piques my interest a little more.

AV club gives it a C+, but also says it might still be something that many folks enjoy watching on Netflix. Their biggest lament is that this film could have been a bit more bold and less subdued compared to the what we end up with. They note that given the quality of the supporting cast, we could have ended up with a less derivative film. Me, I plan to watch and it will be interesting to see Rebel in a role that highlights her new physique.

I had been watching a lot of true crime documentaries lately, so figured this would be lighter fare. You pretty much expect it to be predictable. Alicia has a very short role and doesn't show up until there's 20 mins left. But there's a few snicker moments. Rebel tries pretty hard. Probably still getting used to her new self. I liked it more than the Mike Myers vehicle.

I'm pretty sure the only shot of Alicia is in a poster on the trailer (which is probably a hint), and if the title of this thread didn't feature her I wouldn't have even known she was in it.

Decent comedy. Not really a Rebel Wilson fan, but I thought Angourie Rice was great.

Hated the fact that Rebel Wilsonís character didnít need physical therapy after waking up from a 20 year coma. There could have been a classic montage scene of training and working out haha

I was also class of 2002, so that rally scene was spot on for me. That CD skipping line

Overall 90s soundtrack for this movie was on point. **gets nostalgic for Mandy Moore**

I enjoyed this a bit more than I thought I would, of course it was very predictable, but it was just such an easy watch.
