Adult World

The best part of working at an adult bookstore is the great customer base you get to pepper-spray nightly.

Surprisingly, the X-rated video renters in this dramedy are quite innocuous.

A college graduate with no prospects in her chosen field of poetry, Amy (Emma Roberts) eventually answers a want ad for a porn store clerk.

Under the tutelage of fellow employee Alex (Evan Peters), Amy learns the ins and outs of the adult entertainment and writes her prose in her spare time.

By chance she encounters her idol, erstwhile poet Rat Billings (John Cusack), who begrudgingly becomes her mentor.

But her drive for recognition quickly alienates her new family.

Not as prolific as it wants to be, Adult World does benefit from Cusack's involvement but he is not enough to carry the clichéd laden coming-of-age script.

Furthermore, any poet worth a damn isn't into pornography, they're into pills and booze.
