For a movie to work, the main character simply must have some redeeming qualities. In Young Adult, touted as a comedy, Theron plays a character you wish would get hit by a truck, a big one. A self absorbed drunken ho. There is little comedy here, just a forlorn look at a disturbed drunk, a week in the life. This movie is so pointless I'd give it no stars if I could. Do not rent this, do not buy it when it's marked down to a dollar in the discount barrel. Junk.
