We’ve always fantasized about going back to high school with the wisdom we have today.
Bullies wouldn’t stand a chance!
That’s sorta the scenario for Rebel Wilson‘s character in her new Netflix comedy, Senior Year, streaming today. Except there’s one major twist: She’s going back to high school after being in a coma for 20 years. So she really doesn’t have the wisdom of 20 years under her belt, just a 37-year-old body.
We love anything Wilson does and she brings a bit (but not too much) of her raunchy sensibilities to the affair, but overall it’s a sweet—often hilarious—fish-out-water comedy that’s bursting at the seams with LGBTQ characters.
And a high school experience that looks very different from our own—in the best ways possible.
