Honest comment from a user who DIDN'T work on the film
30 August 2002 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

This film seemed more interested in getting teenagers to like it than in getting a story told. The music in the film is an obvious attempt at drawing in a younger audience...how else would you explain such "hip music" playing at such inappropriate times in the film? Often, the music is extremely distracting.

Not to say that there's much to distract us from...you get unrealistic teenage stereotypes that we're supposed to relate with on some level, dialogue written by a forty year old desperately trying to channel a 16 year old, and a painfully predictable storyline that wants to show us that people can change... dramatically... with no reason, thought, or logic involved whatsoever.

In the end, the film comes right out and says, "this was about reality". I'm not sure what that line meant...and i'm not sure that a hip soundtrack will help me through any of the incoherent babble littered throughout this film.
