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 »
This is one of my favorite movies. Many characters are outlandish and ridiculous, but that just adds to the fun. The direction is creative and original, and the plot is both hilarious and believable. This movie is great for anyone who likes teen comedy or likes to laugh. Just don't set your expectations too high -- this is plain fun, not high art.
Dunst is in top form, and the other actors are simply a joy to watch. Shane West's unbelievable accent will keep you rolling. Short is excellent. Foster is fabulous. Hanks is great.
The music is another excellent reason to watch this movie in itself. If you hate it, you probably don't have a soul. (I kid.) Seriously, this movie deserves to be watched at least once.
