A fun film to watch, given some silliness in the plot
1 June 2002 | by (loveland, colorado) – See all my reviews

It may be a "teen movie" but it touched on some current themes in a tasteful manner. I disagree with the previous review that it was "terrible"; it was not. Aiello was a believable, sad and frustrated character wanting to show his daughter (Shanee Edwards) he loved her. I'm sure the topics of abortion, girl-girl loving and poor Harley the dog's death may be anathema to some but in the whole context of the film they were reasonable and well done. So it's not academy award stuff, it was fun to watch and the ending was not what I had expected.
