If you liked the premise of Young Adult but wanted it to be funnier, then maybe Girl in Progress will be your ticket to post-twenties adolescence captured with a few more laughs.

Directed by Patricia Riggen, Girl in Progress stars Eva Mendes as Grace, the single mother of a fiery young daughter named Ansiedad (played by newcomer Cierra Ramirez) who acts out for attention from her less-than-responsible mom. When English teacher Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette) shakes things up, Ansiedad gets the notion that she doesn't have to wait to become an adult all on her own.

The film hits theaters on April 27, 2012.
