"Frog" centers around a young boy Arlo (Scott Grimes) who loves to collect reptiles and amphibians. His basement is full of them. His parents are concerned about his development but do nothing but talk. Despite his geekiness a girl named Suzy (Amy Lynne) likes him though Suzy's friend Kathy (Elizabeth Berkley) does not. Typical budding teen relationship behavior so far. But one day Arlo acquires a new frog for his collection. The frog turns out to be an enchanted prince turned into a frog. The remainder of the film centers around Arlo's attempts to find a beautiful women who is willing to kiss the frog and turn him back into a prince. For some reason women have a distinct adversion to kissing frogs so the quest is not without difficulty. Particularly when parents and friends do not understand whats going on. Over all the acting is fine with each actress and actor convincing in their role. As a coming of age film, "Frog" is also fine. The viewer watches Arlo learn that there is more to life than reptiles and amphibians, Suzy learn that Arlo is a nice boy, and Kathy learn that you do not need to like all your friend's friends to be a friend. The film has some genuine humorous moments as well. Particularly the frog in the popcorn and Arlo and Suzy in the pond.
