Name of song
9 June 2001 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie. It's not great film, but it's a nice feel-good movie. I was far more interested in Alex than I was in Janine.

I guess I identify more with the unpopular girl than the supermodel. I'd look for fanfiction about this movie, except that i know it won't exist. It just seemed to me that Janine's relationship with her guy was not as deep. I mean the first words out of his mouth once he found out were "I went out with Janine Adams!" I'm not saying they didn't care about each other or anything. The two of them were just a little more surface stuff. But there's nothing wrong with that.

I'm trying to find out the name of the song playing just after they've switched back. When Janine is looking at the pictures taken in the photo booth, etc. Since they only played the intro, I never found out what the title of the song was.

If anyone knows, let me know.
