Did You Know?

Trivia

Amy's synopsis for her online submission to Le Passion magazine reads: 'A young girl coming into her own sexually finds herself in a tricky situation. She works at a store where the stock boy is red hot. She takes the plunge and propositions him for sex. Will he go for it? Will he be good? How big will his penis really be? Only time will tell...' See more »

Goofs

Whilst uploading her erotic story to the Le Passion site, it is briefly shown that there is no option for leaving one's phone number. Also, Amy did not attach a file, nor did she include her email address in the spaces provided on the submission form, therefore her receiving a phone call from the magazine is unlikely. See more »

Quotes

Amy: I don't know if you noticed. I put some of my poems in the basket.
Rat Billings: That's great. I'll read those... at some point.

Nah
16 May 2014 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Am I the only one here who's literally blown AWAY from this movie by Emma's performance? Although I liked the premise, the main character is completely over the top,annoying, boring and unfunny. Or Emma Roberts just made her that way... She keeps playing that same type of girl recently and it wouldn't be a problem at all if that type of girl isn't painfully annoying. I generally like coming of age movies, just last night I've watched Bitchkram, which is heartwarming although the main character is supposed to be annoying and bitchy. In Adult world main character supposed to be cute and likable, but she's everything but that. So I just gave up watching at one point, because I couldn't care less what will happen to her.
