For Your Anticipation: Expecting Company?

Just to clarify, I was never expecting outstanding quality out of the Diablo Cody-Jason Reitman reunion project of "Young Adult". I've always been expecting a good fun time, and it looks like I probably will get that. But it also seems like Reitman is packing the extra punch in there, as he usually does. Do his films grate on me ever so slightly for their "spry" dialogue and execution? Yes, they very much do. But there's still an attempted honesty below the surface that's desperate to eke itself out. Reitman's films are brutal honesty for those unwilling to conform to more aggressively indie residences.
