After all, how many sensitive, awkward indie-music-loving hipsters can one kid bring to the silver screen?
Thankfully, though, early signs are positive. Dana Stevens offers an effusive review:
Teen viewers accustomed to the rapid-fire vulgarities of Superbad and Pineapple Express may snort at this movie's emo guilelessness. But like its source, a young-adult novel of the same name by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, Playlist is unabashedly romantic. Some people really were made for each other, the movie asserts, and New York does look beautiful by night. You got a problem with that?
No, ma'am. No problem here!
