it SUCKED, 23 April 2003
Author: Masztaar from sweden

NO this is not a good european verision of a teenage movie, first of all, its in german, and i dont like or understand that language so i had to read the subtitles, thats not an argument but i just thought you should know =) Anyways, the movie is not at all good, mostly its embarassing and its more like a movie for kids age 10-12 so they can learn how it works when youre about 16 yrs old IN GERMANY (obvioulsy), this is not at all how i was when i was 16, neither was anyone i know.. this is more like a german tv-series cut together in to a movie. Everyone just face it, theres NO european teenage movies that are good, except for maybe some comedies.
