Charlize Theron puts the Young in Young Adult

Sit up, Charlize Theron fans, here is another movie from the critically acclaimed and damn gorgeous actress. In a not-so-typical comedy, Theron takes on the role of the unlikeable protagonist who heads back to her home town, making waves as she does and not everyone (in fact, pretty much no one) is happy to see her return.
