teenage flick
26 November 2002 | by (Brussels) – See all my reviews

14 year old girls will probably like this movie. Dj-lovers all over the world will laugh at it. The story? A farmer's kid from Nebraska who's musically talented mother died when he was young goes off to Los Angeles to compete with the best Dj's of the States. There he meets a cool black kid, a pretty dancer from New York whom he falls in love with and some evil competitors. He wins of course.

Nothing wrong with a standard formula and Eric Szmanda is okay as the lead actor, but who chose the soundtrack? there's no way that a dj could ever win a contest playing the old fashioned pophouse Eric's character spins... it's just not right... I know the dj scene in the States is way different from the one in Europe, but hey, that's no excuse for having the best dj of the competition play stupid popmusic.
