In the bench kissing scene, the editors decided to digitally remove the beer bottle from Kelly's hand. They didn't replace it with anything so it looks like she has a deformed claw for a hand when she walks to the bench and sits down. Later in the scene, the bottle is off to her left where there was no bottle before. See more »
I don't even know what you're doing here Landers, but if some guy dazzled his way into my ex-girlfriends fancy I'd be doing the same thing... only I'd have a bigger part.
You dropped your sword.

No animals were harmed in the making of this film. However, we did manage to sprain two ankles, break one wrist, squirt one extra in the eye with chili and drive our UPM into insanity. See more »
Burke (Ben Foster) is dumped by Allison (Melissa Sagemiller). She then starts dating obnoxious English boy Striker (Shane West). Burke tries out for a school play--a rock version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream"--just to be near Allison. He's totally unaware that his best friend's little sister (Kirsten Dunst) is attracted to him. Guess how it turns out?
Aside from two flashes of nudity and an astounding amount of swearing for a PG-13 movie, this is a cute and harmless teen movie. It's definetely better than writer/director Tommy O'Haver's last film ("Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss").
I'll list the bad and good things about this movie: The bad: Foster is way too nerdy to be likable; West's imitation of an English accent is hysterically bad; Martin Short is really REALLY irritating as the school drama coach and some jokes are real groaners.
The good: Dunst is very good and stops the show when she sings "Dream of Me"; the songs and dances aren't half bad and full of color and energy; Sagemiller is beautiful and very appealing; West (accent aside) is really handsome and hunky and dir. O'Haver has a real flair for directing dance & music numbers--he should really do a musical next.
So--an OK teen film.
