Anja is a beautiful and very well proportioned high school senior ... and still a virgin. She insists that she wants her first time to be with a guy, who knows what it's about. Her rich (and arrogant, pretentious and obnoxious) boyfriend Peter serves the purpose, and he's more than willing. In fact, he's pushing forward as much as he can, but Victor, a freshman who has a serious crush on Anja, has other plans. Her first time should definitely not be with this buffoon, and he's ready to take it VERY far! Written by
Seriously. How did that happen? I'll admit that this is one of my least favorite books by Dennis Jürgensen(a man whose work I love with few exceptions), but it's far superior to this adaptation. You know what? I'll just say it, with no BS: Not all of his novels(and this goes for those of others, as well) can actually be successfully "translated" to this medium. I didn't dislike Victor as much before I saw this. Anyway, he becomes physically infatuated(no, really, there is nothing more substantial to it; he becomes interested in her without knowing her in the least, and neither of them have a shred of personality to boot, and the same goes for everyone else in this) with a girl a couple of grades above him in high school, and he doesn't let the fact that she's got a boyfriend(fortunately for his case, the dude's an obnoxious jerk, which makes one wonder why on Earth she's with him... he doesn't even put up a facade for her) get in his way. Ah, young love... or immature, selfish, lust-driven destructive behavior, at least. Huh. It doesn't sound as sweet as it would seem they thought it was when you put the right words to it. So, he stalks her as a result of his superficial obsession with her. He has to "resue her" from the other guy because she's blinded by... I don't know, his height or his teeth, and can't tell that he's with her apparently without caring about who she really is. Like our lead. ... Wait. Crap, the plot is imploding upon itself. Even with his nose not yet down on the surface of a mirror, Hansen simply is not charming. I'd also say that Lassen-Kahlke has got *nothing* on Wanting in the looks department, though I guess that's a matter of taste. Anyway, he's not likable, his "friends"(why in the name of all that is good and just are they hanging out with him?) aren't, no one in this whole thing is. Everyone has one dimension(if that) to them. The younger brothers(with the schtick of saying things that you don't expect to come out of the mouth of someone of that age... eugh) are particularly intolerable, on account of them not at all being natural in their performances. On the acting... it gets horrible at times, and mugging and being hammy are featured all too heavily in the nearly invariably failed attempts at humor. Oh, so does humiliation. And situations that no one has ever been in and thus cannot relate to. No one behaves like these cardboard cutouts do. Sense is routinely ignored and sacrificed entirely for the sake of jokes and gags that usually aren't half decent. Everyone is constantly tricking the main caricature(laughing yet?), and things work out for him in spite of the troubling fact he *does nothing*. This is meant to be an R-rated teen comedy, however, it's seldom funny. I'll grant that there are a handful of instances, but it's not worth the rest of this. At one point a spider goes missing, and the cinematic language(that is average for the rest of this) was so unintelligible that I didn't realize at first that they couldn't see where it was. And this contains some of the worst schlocky Danish emo pop music to hit the airwaves that remain in intense therapy to this day. There is plenty of strong language, a little sexuality(several hot chicks) and brief nudity in this. I recommend this to those who simply do not care about quality. 3/10
