  • Summary: Rob is facing the biggest day of his life. He needs to nail a college interview ensuring his admittance to his parents' beloved alma mater, keep his cool when life-long crush Angela finally seems to show interest, and deal with his best friends as they realize their high school days are ending. As pressure mounts, something weird happens. He finds himself reliving the day's events over and over again. Is Rob stuck in a dream? Experiencing déjà vu? Having a psychotic break? Whether it's finding a way to get into Georgetown, into Angela's pants, or having an even bigger epiphany, Rob must figure out how to break the cycle before losing his mind. [IFC Midnight] Collapse

    Beers' screenplay manages to sustain the outrageous scenario with a string of jokes that don't take the underlying goofiness for granted. Instead, the writer-director builds on its crass foundations with constant inspired one-liners.

    The script, by Beers and Mathew Harawitz, offers a little less invention in this endless-repeat scenario than it might have.

    Premature bops along with a wiseacre self-awareness and a nimble cast... But Mr. Beers and his fellow screenwriter, Mathew Harawitz, also have a numbing Seth MacFarlane-esque weakness for purely attention-getting crudeness and unfunny stereotypes.

    Premature, you will be exhausted to hear, is a teen sex comedy with the plot of Groundhog Day, its supernatural comedy hearkening more to Scott Baio's Zapped! than to Porky's.

    A rapidly wearying comedy that mistakes crudeness with humor.

    Premature winds up resembling nothing so much as the coarsely smutty teen-sex comedies that abounded throughout the ’80s in the wake of “Porky’s.”

    The blatantly misogynistic treatment of the female characters, who exist solely to service Rob and his best friend (Craig Roberts), would have felt retrograde in a movie made decades ago.

    Premature is not the most original comedy you will ever see, but it took me by surprise that it has some fresh ideas, that made the whole movie over exciting and jumped over its minor flaws. Expand
