Two teenagers do what every teenager wants to do, rob a bank, burn down the school, punch policemen...
2 February 2000 | by (Salt Lake City, Utah) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Sundance film festival, and it was fantastic! Two teenagers who decide to kill themselves on new years day (one year away), decide to spend their last year living out their friends dreams (their friends had recently died). They rob a bank, burn down the school, perform surgery, and do many other things. The film was deeply emotional, highly dramatic, and incredibly entertaining. Certainly worth seeing
