Let me start by saying I know I said I was going to review this when it was still in the theaters, but I have to say I am very glad that I didn’t. Having read all the books, and I was very concerned about this movie because of this tweet
Lots of movies and TV show talk about being ‘coming of age” stories. In those “adventures” however what we get is an adolescent of some kind making a mental leap from being a child to becoming an adult because of some situation they may or may not have had control over. Not the case with Big Mouth. It is the tale of several kids forced into a adulthood because their bodies have said it’s that time.
