BOOKSMART | Final Restricted Trailer.
Amy and Molly are two high school seniors who have been best friends since childhood but considered pretentious by their peers. Amy has been out for two years and has a crush on a girl named Ryan. Molly urges Amy to attempt to forge a relationship with her before they graduate. On the eve of their high school graduation, Molly overhears some of her peers making fun of her in the bathroom and confronts them. They tell her that not everything is about school and that they all got into good colleges despite their partying antics. Molly angrily tells Amy everything and says that they should have enjoyed their time in high school more. Molly convinces a reluctant Amy to join her in going to an end-of-year party held by Nick. The pair realize that neither of them knows where Nick's party is hosted. Molly calls a Lyft and is picked up by Jared, a kindhearted and wealthy classmate who thinks that they want to go to the party he is hosting instead. He brings them to his yacht, where they stay for a few minutes before leaving after an encounter with his drug-crazed friend Gigi. The girls call a second Lyft and are shocked to be picked up by their principal, Jordan Brown. After accidentally playing pornography through his car speakers, Brown drops them off at their classmate George's house, thinking they wanted to go to his murder mystery party. The two encounter Gigi again, who reveals that the food that they ate on the yacht was drugged, and both Amy and Molly soon begin to trip and hallucinate that they are dolls. They escape the house and attempt to get the location of the party from a pizza delivery man, deducing only one house in the area will have had so many pizzas delivered there. He kicks them out and chastises them for not thinking clearly. Amy accidentally leaves her phone in his car before he drives off. Molly's phone is nearly dead, lasting just long enough to call for help from their teacher and friend Ms. Fine, who gives them a change of clothes and a ride to Nick's party.
