The shocking and hilarious novel of dating, sex, and distress in an average American suburb, now a major motion picture directed by Jason Reitman and starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, and Judy Greer.The only thing more disturbing than junior high school . . . is adulthood.The story of one town's complicated network of dating and sex, intimacy and disconnection, online and off--at work, at home, and in school--is now a major motion picture by Jason Reitman, the award-winning director of Up in the Air, Juno, and Thank You for Smoking. Reitman's film, featuring a star-studded cast including Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, and an attention-getting cast of young newcomers, is based on the novel by cult hero Chad Kultgen, author of The Average American Male, The Average American Marriage, and The Lie. The novel explores the sexual explorations of a handful of junior high school students and their equally dysfunctional parents. From porn-surfing fathers to World of Warcraft-obsessed sons, from competitive cheerleaders to their dissatisfied, misguided mothers, Kultgen clicks open the emotionally treacherous culture we live in.
