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

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.

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 »

I've found that teen flicks tend to be underrated by most critics. While it is true that most such movies follow formulaic and predictable storylines, the genre usually provides harmless fun and often showcases innovative direction and talented young actors.
"Get Over It", however, is an unmitigated disaster. Trying to cash in on the recent spate of teen Shakespeare updates such as the enjoyable "Ten Things I Hate About You", the filmmakers serve up a lame teen break-up movie centered around a painfully unfunny parody of a high school musical production of "A Midsummer's Night's Dream". The musical numbers were so long and dull that my fingers inevitably found my way to the fast-forward button. With the sole exception of Kirsten Dunst, the actors seem too visibly embarrassed by the lousy script to put any effort into their work. Martin Short's egomaniacal producer shtick is woefully old and tired, and should be buried at sea, ASAP. I laughed exactly once, at the culmination of a running gag involving the main character's oversexed dog. Mostly I just cringed.
Only the cuteness power of Kirsten Dunst saves this turkey from being completely unwatchable. I charitably give it 2 out of 10. I advise you to stay far, far away from it.
