My choice would be something like... Feeling queasy over a young person having their life co-opted over a 12 year period.

I've tried to learn to never to trust trailers, but this film looks extremely formulaic and schmaltzy and kitschy. There's no indication that they tried anything interesting in terms of story. But I could be wrong, because trailers seem to be designed to turn me off these days.

The trailer's kind of shitty and gimmicky, but Richard Linklater's great.

I will always give Linklater the benefit of the doubt for his films. I don't always love all of them, but he's always exploring and after Dazed and Confused, he gets a free pass from me for the rest of his life.
