Lizzy Caplan Reviews Drinking at the Movies
In addition to her breakout role as "Janice Ian" in Mean Girls, Lizzy Caplan's film credits include Hot Tub Time Machine, Cloverfield, and My Best Friend's Girl. She'll next be seen in 127 Hours, directed by Danny Boyle. On television, Caplan received raves for her performance as a vegan with a habit for vampire blood in the HBO drama True Blood. Read her review of Drinking at the Movies:
Drinking at the Movies, Julia Wertz's new Fart Party book, may just be her best work yet. My copy is certainly dog-eared within an inch of its life. She exhibits the same hilariously self-deprecating grumpy grump from her previous books, but Drinking brings a whole new layer to the Julia Wertz experience. That's right, I said "the Julia Wertz experience" ... which actually sounds more like a carnival ride to be avoided, one that will leave you inexplicably drunk with holes in your clothes.
In this book Julia is darker, lugubriously introspective, and dare I say, more vulnerable than in her previous works. Yet she's still really, really, obscenely funny. There aren't many authors working today who can illustrate the pervasive despair that sometimes likes to crash on your couch in your 20s--but Julia Wertz nails this. In fact, you should probably get copies for your parents and other assorted relatives who like to mumble things like "youth is wasted on the young" when you complain about stuff. Maybe reading Drinking at the Movies will kickstart your dumb mom's memory, and she'll remember that being in your 20s is actually kind of lonely.
Now I'm depressed. Thanks for nothing, Wertz.
