Newark Star Ledger

"With Juno, Up in the Air, and Young Adult, Jason Reitman has hit three home runs in a row. And the script from Diablo Cody has more depth and nearly as many laughs as her Oscar-winning screenplay for Juno. Everyone in the cast is excellent here, but it’s the gorgeous, mesmerizing, messed-up Charlize Theron who delivers one of the most impressive performances of the year in one of the very best movies of 2011. I give Young Adult an A"
