WOW!!!!!
8 September 2000 | by (BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on Superchannel when there was absolutely nothing else on. The synopsis was something like "Teenagers have a party in the kitchen when their parents aren't home". I thought, "that sounds lame, kinda like 'Can't Hardly Wait'". I watched it anyway. During the first few minutes I thought it was a little slow, and prepared myself to be bored out of my mind. Then the movie got going.

Finally, a good Canadian movie!!! I had no idea it was Canadian, until about half-way through, when I realized that none of the cast had accents!

Anyway, on to the movie itself. Such a great little film. It completely brought me back to my high school/college days. The characters were REAL - they didn't seem like they were reading scripts or trying for laughs. I didn't feel like my emotions were being fooled around with. This is an HONEST movie.

The acting was really great (I thought). Each character was very well developed.

The ONE problem (very minor) I had with this movie, was the fact that the parents of Scott and Steve were so anal about keeping their carpets perfect, yet they did NOT seem like those type of people when they were out with their friends. That part just didn't gel for me.

But, aside from that very minor set-back, I really liked this movie. I can't say enough good things about it. It was so ON. A REAL movie that actually describes the feelings that go with being a teenager, old enough to move out of the house, but STILL living with your dreaded parents. I can't recommend this movie to enough people.

After seeing this movie, I've GOTTA go rent "Suburbanites".
