Young Adult’s Patton Oswalt, Jason Reitman Do Their Part For Texter-Free Theaters


OK, so we’re still a little bit mad that Patton Oswalt was whisked away before we got to talk to him at the New York premiere of Young Adult last week. Also, that Charlize Theron’s publicist gave us the evil eye when we asked Charlize about vampires. But whatever, we really, really liked the movie. And Patton steals the show as the man who was literally crippled by high school’s cruelty and tries to act as a voice of reason for Charlize’s nutso character, Mavis.

Anyway, when we were sent this video by Young Adult director Jason Reitman and Oswalt, we decided to share it with you. It’s a spoof on the viral video PSA released by the Alamo Drafthouse theater chain, which purportedly features a recording of a possibly drunk, definitely angry patron who was kicked out of the theater for texting during the movie. We think Oswalt does a fine impression of her. How about you? (Side note: As annoying as it is to see someone texting in the theee-ater, I’d probably be more pissed off about having my movie viewing interrupted by an usher forcibly removing the culprit from his/her seat.)

Also, did we mention we liked Young Adult? Watch our red carpet interviews after the jump.
