In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
When Berke Landers, a popular high school basketball star, gets dumped by his life-long girlfriend, Allison, he soon begins to lose it. But with the help of his best friend Felix's sister Kelly, he follows his ex into the school's spring musical. Thus endues a love triangle loosely based upon Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", where Berke is only to find himself getting over Allison and beginning to fall for Kelly. Written by
When Berke auditions for the musical, he sees a girl wearing a Big Red T-shirt and randomly sings the Big Red jingle with the help of Kelly, Basin and all the other students. Big Red is also the name of the previous cheerleading captain in Bring It On (2000), another movie which Kirsten Dunst starred in. See more »
In the opening number of the show at the end of the film, Kelly's character Helena sings that she loves Burke's character Lysander, when in the original play, Midsummer Night's Dream, Helena loves Demitrius. See more »
She was the first girl to see me naked. Granted we were 7 years old at the time, but I had a feeling, even then. There's really something about the first girl you play doctor with. Maybe it's cosmic or something. Or perhaps it's just that she's seen your package and didn't run away screaming. Whatever it was, Allison and I were made for each other. A perfect fit. So, when her family moved away, I knew that some day, some how, fate would bring us back together.

This movie falls short in a lot of things but I have to admit...I love it. I KNOW it's just another teen romance movie, but for me the acting of the two main characters, Ben Foster and Kirsten Dunst, as well as the singing that they actually did themselves, combined with the fact that parts of the movie are just plain weird, somehow captivates me into watching it...oh...maybe 25 times now. I think I am a sick freak that needs counseling but I love this movie. I don't really like Martin Short, but I thought he was excellent in this movie. I honestly thought the romance between Kelly and Burke was very believable and sweet in its way. I also am about to join a group about weird obsessive people who like movies that are not that great. Just kidding. Love this movie.
