Take that, "Can't Hardly Wait!"
21 August 1999 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

Probably one of the more subtle, original, realistic but no less funny flick about what happens when ultra-tight-ass parents go out to a dinner party and leave the son at home. As the title denotes, this film does involve a kitchen party, and the young actors in the film play it out with such deadpan realism that it could pass for a documentary. Accurate, timely and biting. A fine example of how to make a movie about teens alone in a house.
