Acutally ITT: realistic plots are inherently boring.
That's actually pretty true given the type of movie it is. People have shenanigans in mind, not boring shit.
A lot of slang in America is pretty much universal. Some movies are so far off it sounds like the writers just choose slang that was common when they were in high school, not taking into account how stupid it would sound to a new generation.
Not really. Colloquialisms end up making some people not knowing what the fuck the person is saying. They have to appeal to a broader base so they have to really hold back on slang, or else some people will not understand, which takes away from the movie.
I'm not just talking about "party" movies either. The depiction of young people in general, even if they're not the main characters in the movie, frequently misses it's mark.
That happens with all sorts of characters. You can only go into so much depth. Zooey Deschanel and other people in her "quirky" movies don't accurately depict adults, but people almost never complain. It is way too hard to try to accurately capture an entire age group, given the huge differences between them.
