During a recent movie outing, I saw previews for “Collateral Beauty,” “Inferno” and “Live By Night.” One down, three new ones to go. This coming weekend, I’ll be going out to see “The Edge of Seventeen” with my best friend. I’ve known her since high school and I know we’ll get a lot of laughs from it, just as we do with the teen comedies of our generation. There’s always something to relate to in that genre from one age group to the next. I love the comparison of this new high school tale to many of my favorite teen comedies throughout the years.
