I liked a couple of things in particular about "Adult World". Emma Roberts is crazy cute. And snow. Other than that, not much else to recommend from this limp tale of a vintage porn shop clerk cum wannabe published poet. And all the while she's stalking a washed-up once lauded "punk poet" (John Cusack, who will evidently take anything he can get in terms of roles these days) whom she begs for mentorship but who wants not a damn thing to do with her.
Sound interesting? It's not.
Even the great Cloris Leachman's cameo disappoints in this woeful "World".
Poetic justice, I suppose.
