You had sex didn't you? Well talk to me you big slut, how was it?
Disappointing. I wish I'd saved it.
Oh, no way. You gotta get that first one over with. That way when it really counts, you're not sitting there the whole time going, "I'm not a virgin anymore, I'm not a virgin anymore." Think of it as a warm-up.

When I saw this movie my last thought after previewing it was: WOW!! Finally, a movie that speaks to everyone who views it, a film that never had one dull moment in its running time! I was so amazed I had to watch it over and over again. I love Dominique Swain after watching this! I thought Sean Patrick Flanery wasn't bad either, even though I hated his character, Todd Sparrow. I liked it how this film was made when all these stars weren't as popular as they are now, like Tara Reid and Selma Blair. The film explores Dominique Swain's character coming out of her shy shell! She goes through all these emotional changes and grows stronger because of them and you really feel she has grown up by the end of the film and she's realized know one should ever use her like Todd Sparrow did throughout the whole movie up until the finale. The movie just relaxes you and takes on Andrea's journey of self-discovery of herself and the movie shows you that with a comedic outlook and I really like that touch. I give this film 8/10 stars! You'll love it like I did!
