Storyline

Greg is near the end of his senior year in high school, wanting to go to the prom, eyeing Cinny (the school's beauty with brains) from afar, and regularly trippin', daydreaming about being a big success as a poet, a student, a lover. His mom wants him to apply to colleges, but Greg hasn't a clue. One of his teachers, Mr. Shapic, tries to inspire him, too. He finally figures out he can get close to Cinny if he asks her for help with college applications. But friendship isn't enough, he wants romance and a prom date. So, he tells a few lies and, for awhile, it seems to be working. Then, things fall apart and Greg has to figure out how to put the trippin aside and get real. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hilarious!
19 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite comedies even though it is a little more low budget than most. I enjoyed it because of the hilarious characters in the movie like the grandfather, and Greg himself, also Greg's daydreaming scenes are hilarious. I found it to have a realistic portrayal of African American families,unlike some movies and tv shows that display black families differently and wrongly. This is another reason why I enjoyed the movie, I could relate to a lot of the characters in the movie and everybody was simple and down to earth. I will never get tired of watching this movie, it is great. It is not a comedy for everyone, that's for sure. To really enjoy this movie you would probably have to be able to relate to the characters, if not you won't find the humour in it. For a low budget movie, it is really funny!
