Funny, witty and full of that instant teen "naughtyness"
12 June 2003 | by (Norwalk) – See all my reviews

All men have had that girl that they had their eye on forever but never really had the cojones to say anything. We'll in this movie Brad (Friedle) gets his chance when he gets into the bedroom "studing" w/ Brooke (Shelton), the popular blond that has caught his eye. Brad has no idea that his best friend since they were "sperm", Leah (Hewitt), has a crush on him. Everything is great until Brooke stops Brad's fun by asking for some protection which starts one hell of a bad night for Brad, just to get a friggin' condom.

The dose of humor also can come from Leah and Brad's friends; Seth (Masterson) and Josh (Mardsen). The whole movie has it's angle. So one man is trying to get laid with the girl of his dreams not knowing that his bestest friend in the whole world has the hots for him, all and all the movie is a great movie to sit down and watch, especially if Jennifer Love Hewitt is in it.

Hewitt steals the show and the only reason why 90% of the people watch the movie because she is the only one besides Danny Masterson that keeps the movie together. Will Friedle needs to stick at being the brother on "Boy Meets World" then TRYING to act in a movie. So the movie had it's funny moments with the appearance of Anthony Michael Hall as the demented bus driver wanting 65 cents.

I give this movie a 7/10 because some of the actors suck at what they do, but other then that this movie is a great movie because of how funny and witty it is... a "guilty pleasure" movie... :)
