‘Young Adult’ is not women behaving badly, just real

Nowhere is the old saying “beauty is only skin deep” less understood than in Hollywood where for years women have tried with sporadic success to overcome the notion that looks count for more than brains. This past year two female-starring film comedies, “Bridesmaids” and “Bad Teacher,” became smash hits based on the idea that women can behave badly and on Friday, a third, “Young Adult,” hits theaters with a head-turning performance by Charlize Theron and written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody.
