Trivia

The original title of the movie was supposed to be "Cherry Pink", based on the song of the same name. However, when the producers wanted to buy the right to incorporate the song into the movie, they found that the price was too high. Thus the name and the song were dropped. See more »

A great coming of age movie
15 February 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It is refreshing to see a coming of age movie where the boys (and this time the girls) are not portrayed as village idiots. No bodily fluid or slap stick jokes. It is all believable and humorous to watch. Suspense without insult to the viewer's intelligence. I have watched it twice and will watch it again. I guess I can identify with the main character and his learning the facts of life from friends.
