The movie of my childhood
28 May 2004 | by (Kranj, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

The movie itself isn't very special, it is a typical teenage comedy where a nerd become very popular, and all the "bitches" are punished... But i think that a growing teenager needs this kind of fairytales. Angela represents a dream, we all wished to come trough.. its very optimistic, with a positive ending. All persons in the movie accept new ideas, thoughts, they realize what they want, need, and who their real friends are. Now i know that this is just a movie and that things like that don't happen, but still i like to watch it over and over, because it is funny, optimistic, and it helps you, when you're down for some guy,or....

My advice: this movie, popcorn, lot of friends, and you'll have FUN!
