Director: Jason Reitman. Cast: Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, Patton Oswalt. 94 min. Rated R. Comedy/Drama.
A self-proclaimed "famous" author who writes teenager novels is down on her luck, and decides to go back to her hometown to steal her high-school sweetheart, whose married and has a new baby girl. Her efforts ... are just pathetic. Because she won't wake up. SHE JUST WON'T WAKE UP! (Watching Theron made me want to shout.) After an astounding climactic scene at the baby-naming party, she concludes she must be mentally disturbed. But here's the ticker: the society convinces her she's their idol. Made by the Jason Reitman/Diablo Cody (Juno) team, this is a must-see for Theron fans.
