It has it's moments..
18 March 2002 | by (Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is about 2 boys who return from war, one is a geek and the other is a big High School star. The movie is pretty much about dating and sex. The movie has it's moments of Drama, and the relation-ship between Sonny and Gunner is nice. This movie has wonderful acting, and great setting, near the end it becomes worth sitting through the whole thing.
