During the opening credits, Vitamin C ('Colleen Fitzpatrick' ) performs Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together" as people dance around Ben Foster. The walk down the street (and all the dancing) is in one continuous shot. See more »
OK, i picked this film to watch on a night in with the girls because it looked funny and it had Kirsten Dunst in it, and lets face it everyone loves her! But I have to say it has now become one of my favourite movies, its filled with funny dialogue, funky songs and jam packed with cool stars. I love Martin Short as the over dramatic Play director (being a drama student i have had directors very similar to him!)
The movie does constantly slip in and out of reality but the amazingly funny songs do hold it together and leave the the audience with the tunes stuck in there heads for days! With Vitamin C appearing in the opening sequence and the finale alongside Sisqo, it is hard not to fall in love with the music! I think it is clever that the movies narrative is based on Shakespeares "A midsummer nights dream" which is also the play that is performed in the finale of the movie. And Get over it could be used in schools to help desperate teenagers to understand the sometimes complex story lines of Shakespeares plays. Overall the movie fits the typical teen movie criteria, but at the same time it has some quirky gimmicks that are really funny. Its a perfect film to regain that feel good feeling after a rubbish day!
