Right now it feels like everyone is talking about how much they love Netflix's new high school comedy Senior Year, and the reason people can't stop talking about it because they didn't expect to like the new film as much as they do - truly, we're obsessed. Well, there's one part of the new film that has viewers particularly surprised, and, honestly? Us too.
Senior Year feels like it kind of came out of nowhere, but quickly became everyone's new favourite feel-good film. The comedy follows high schooler Stephanie (Rebel Wilson) who wakes up from a coma 20 years after a cheer-leading stunt goes wrong right before prom. Now 37, and having missed out on the last two decades, she heads back to high school to try and pick up where she left off.
Almost as soon as the film landed on the streamer viewers were quick to point out that Senior Year felt like a return to the teen-comedy films of the noughties; there is a whole 17 Again and 13 Going on 30 vibe going on with the film that people are loving.
But, aside from the nostalgia and the odd plot-hole or two there's one aspect of the film that has fans very surprised. Essentially, when we sat down for a high school comedy starring Rebel Wilson we most certainly did not expect it to make us sob... anyone else?
Over on Twitter fans were having the same reaction, and clearly were as shocked by the whole thing as we were.
Mmkay so I sat down to watch “Senior Year” for a playful throw away movie and didn’t expect to cry MULTIPLE times. Also I hear you in that BG song, Ben Platt ❤️

I don't care that critics apparently hated that new Netflix movie Senior Year because it was super nostalgic and made me cry? Plus is has a great soundtrack and a blooper reel at the end like all movies should.
