George, a lonely and fatalistic teen who has made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
Alex said he has to escape Amy's friend as she was like an octopus, who had her testicles on him. He later corrects it to tentacles. The same analogy was made in Better off Dead, which also starred John Cusack. See more »
As Rat is giving advice/encouragement to Amy through the open window after she returns his poems, he rises from his crouched position to stand while he is speaking. Rat pauses and the scene cuts to a front shot of Amy, but he is back in a crouched position. When the shot returns to a front view of Rat, he is standing again. See more »
How about a little advice before I depart?
Love... love until you hate. Then learn to hate your love. Then forgive your hate for loving it.

Too many movies use a Christmas backdrop, with cold/snow/snowing, for whatever desired effect it can bring to the audience. Which can be many, varied, and (at times) successful. "Adult World" uses the weather elements, alone, as an enhancement to the overall story. Including, but not limited to, the defining of the the human condition (think -"White Bird") without the need to resort to holiday spirit as a smoothing effect for lack of quality.
John Cusack adds polish to any film, and Emma Roberts has that girl next door,l wanna be next to/outgoing/cuteness when in character. Somewhat similar to Mellisa Joan Hart. So it's a bit disheartening for me to see her (mildly) beginning to be sexually exploited, but I figure that comes with the territory in Hollywood. Not that all young actresses succumb to it. But remember I've been viewing her since "Unfabulose" so again, in character, I guess I'm a bit bias towards her sweetness.
Nevertheless, I did hear she has problems waiting on long lines - and I don't mean fictitious book signings.
