Above-Average Teen Flick.
4 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

High school freshman Corey Haim (in the titled role) falls in love quickly with the new girl in town (Kerri Green). She is a couple of years older, but that is no big deal. She is a good soul herself, but she only thinks of Haim as a friend and nothing more. It appears that football star Charlie Sheen is the one that Green has her eyes on. Sheen's current girlfriend (Courtney Thorne-Smith) does not care for this development as it is obvious to her what is happening. Band member Winona Ryder likes Haim, but Haim is oblivious to her completely. Haim will do most anything to get Green so he decides to quit band and play football instead, thinking that will be the way to win her heart for good. A good teen film overall that plays more like a soap opera than anything else. Really funny at times, but also highly dramatic as well. All this makes the film uneven to an extent, but the messages it tries to go for make it a competent work anyway. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
