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.
