A nice try
25 June 2001 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

When ever I travel I always buy Arche comics because they provide joyous laughs. Watching this movie a week ago made me realize that some comics shouldn't be made into movies. The cast mainly full of unknowns excepet for Lauren Holly. The plot revoles around the gang at their high school reunion. But where are Chuck and Dilton ? Another flaw is having the same charcters play each other when their 15 which is dumb. The film's low point comes when Jughead tries to rap. I would made this film when the gang was in high school and have them reunite at the end instead of baseing the whole around the reunion. We can only hope that the feature film version in devolpement with a cast incudling Tobey Maugiure,Joshua Jackson and Christina Ricci will be do the comic justic.
