Storyline

Nicole Maris is a popular high school preppy senior in Utah who gets her life turned upside down when her perfect date, Brad, falls for a cute cheerleader from another school a month before the school's centennial senior prom. After recovering from the shock, Nicole comes up with a solution to save her reputation: find a guy to appear like they're going steady and to take her to the dance hoping to make Brad jealous. Nicole then hooks up with her next door neighbor, prankster and trouble maker Chase Hammond, and tries to model him in her own image while he's looking to make his long-term girlfriend Dulcie jealous too. However, both Nicole and Chase don't expect their charade to lead it where they never expected it to. Written by Matt Patay

Trivia

One of the many references to old teen movies is when Nicole suggests that she and Chase cruise down the strip, just like all the kids did in American Graffiti (1973). A yellow deuce coupe like the one driven in the movie can be seen behind them when the stoplight turns green. See more »

Goofs

When Nicole and Chase come home from the Centennial Dance, the sky is slightly lit, because they were out all night and the sun is coming up, not because they left the dance very early. See more »

Been done a lot better elsewhere.
17 January 2001 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Often when a teenage actress reaches her twenties she's anxious to leave off the schoolgirl roles and try something different, so one might have thought it would take something special to get Melissa Joan Hart ("Sabrina...," "Clarissa...") back in the classroom again. I can't believe that this movie was it, though. It appears to be an attempt at the "sophisticated" style of teen dramedy made popular by movies like "Clueless" and "Cruel Intentions" and TV shows like "Dawson's Creek," but this film is clearly not in the same league with those, mostly because of a listless script. "Drive Me Crazy" is more likely to put you to sleep than to arouse any emotions suggested by its title. The intentions may have been good here, but the execution strikes me as simply uninspired. There's nothing much at all to recommend it.
