I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. It was charming, funny, and, at times painful. I, however think it was painful to watch because I had such a hard time at high school, and I could relate to this movie.
It reminded me of "Mean Girls" a lot, although this had a softer edge to it.
It was a bit predictable, but, sometimes a good, sweet, romance with a happy ending is what you want in a movie.
The acting was good, and the story was believable-if a bit far-fetched.
The sound track was awesome!
