Big Time Adolescence trailer paints a hilarious picture of youth in revolt

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

I hope you're feeling rude this Tuesday afternoon, because Hulu has just dropped the first redband trailer for their original film BIG TIME ADOLESCENCE, and it's packed with underage drinking, illicit drug sales, and dick jokes galore!

In the film, a seemingly bright and mostly innocent 16-year-old named Mo (Griffin Gluck) attempts to navigate high school under the guidance of his best friend Zeke (Pete Davidson), an unmotivated-yet-charismatic college dropout. Although Zeke genuinely cares about Mo, things start to go awry as he teaches Mo nontraditional life lessons in drug dealing, partying, and dating. Meanwhile, Mo's well-meaning Dad (Jon Cryer) tried to step in and take back the reins of his son's upbringing.

Filmmaker Jason Orley will helm the film for Hulu as a part of his directorial debut. Orley also wrote the script, which has actors Emily Arlook, Colson Baker (AKA Machine Gun Kelly), Thomas Barbusca, Oona Laurence, and Sydney Sweeney as members of the feature's supporting cast.

As far as coming-of-age comedies go, BIG TIME ADOLESCENCE looks to tick all the boxes if you're in the market for something unseemly, unapologetic, and unwilling to pull any punches when it comes to depicting the trials and tribulations of the modern day teen experience. Lord knows that I've thrown some wild parties in my day, complete with substances that squeegeed my third eye quite cleanly. Don't worry, everyone survived, and what's life without a character-building flashback every now and then, amiright?

BIG TIME ADOLESCENCE is set to make its Hulu debut March 20th.
