Trivia

The film takes place in 1955. See more »

Goofs

Lenny refers to the comic book "G.I. Joe" when he is almost caught by Heddy when he is hiding in her closet. The "G.I. Joe" character/toy was introduced in 1964 and the related comic book much later. Since the story was set in the 1950s ~(1953-55), Lenny could NOT be reading G.I Joe comics. See more »

Quotes

Polinsky: Has anyone ever told you about the birds and the bees?
Lenny: [sarcastically] Yeah, we learned about it in biology. Bees sting and birds crap on your head.

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.
