Watching this the first time may be your last!
3 March 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

A movie about a college boy who learns tricks of the trade about accepting love isn't what I had in mind. It's hard to decide on calling this either a teen comedy, a school play, a boy-meets-girl satire, or a hodgepodge of weird film shorts. Or all of the above! Personally, the movie has a hard time at what it really stands for. Nothing is problematic at low production values and fair acting as intended, but there is a touch of immediate diversion missing. If you were to call it an amusing satire on the sexual revolution, then it would be the correct dominant choice to take. It is funny on occasion, and has some delightful moments. Take a chance at THE FIRST TIME, but use with caution. For its odd sophistication, a heavy dose of unintentional laughs won't fill your prescription.
