I watched this to get a sense of what happens in Palo Alto. Well, everyone is dysfunctional in this film by a Coppola grandchild. The kids smoke, inhale, drink, purge and engage in non-stop risky behavior. The adults are zoned out, self-involved or preying on the kids. There are two sympathetic characters, Teddy and April, and their stories make the film worth watching. But it's not a pretty picture. I'm leaving for Palo Alto on Friday; it makes want to cancel my trip.

Dark, depressing, and not providing a way out

I'd recommend this movie to 16-20 year olds as it deals with issues related to this stage of development such as socialization and teenage angst.

I must be an outlier, because I liked this movie. It reminded me of Dazed and Confused.

Not bad, but nothing special either. Doesn't really add anything that hasn't been done before.

Pointless. Not worth watching all the way through. No subtitles, either.

Emma Roberts is surprisingly good in this movie; it's the other actors that are unremarkable, or even watchable. I wasn't really an Emma Roberts fan, but this film shows that she has some real potential, if she gets the right roles. James Franco... plays James Franco, basically. I'm not sure why he's a star or people take him seriously. The film itself is very dull and dry.

Boring. Awful. Awfully boring!

I thought the young actors did a great job with this dark material. All the characters are messed up in some way.
I didn't realize until the end credits that Val Kilmer's son was the lead male actor.
