RAU­COUS rites-of­pas­sage com­edy.

Amy (Kait­lyn Dever, right) and best friend Molly (Beanie Feldstein) have for­saken for­ni­ca­tion and par­ty­ing in or­der to achieve their aca­demic dreams.

As grad­u­a­tion looms, Amy is des­tined for Columbia while Molly has been ac­cepted into Yale. The gal pals de­spair at the tom­fool­ery of class­mates so are gob-smacked to learn that lazy peers have also se­cured places at Ivy League in­sti­tu­tions.

It’s a bit­ter pill to swallow: Amy and Molly have need­lessly missed out on lessons in drunken bond­ing, so the over-achiev­ers re­solve to make amends and hatch a hare-brained scheme to gate­crash a party thrown by cool kid Nick (Ma­son Good­ing).
