Matt writes: Sometimes the job of a critic is to provide a platform for films not receiving their deserved attention from audiences. In light of its underwhelming box office numbers, I'd like to place a spotlight on one of the year's most acclaimed movies, Olivia Wilde's "Booksmart," a wonderful comedy about teenage friends encouraged to break the rules in their final hours as high schoolers.
