Storyline

Woody's friend George has given him a couples ticket to the upcoming Hi-Teen Carnival at their high school. As such, Woody, who has always just hung out with friends in groups, contemplates asking a girl out on a date for the first time in his life, but being inexperienced, he doesn't know how to go about it or how to act on the date. He ponders who to ask. The prettiest girl or the most outgoing girl may not be the best choice, but rather the girl with who he thinks he would have the best time may be. His older brother Ed may be able to give Woody some pointers as his own examples of what he does from the time he talks to the intended to ask her out to the time he drops her off at the door after the date is over. Several specific events within that span are shown showing the wrong ways to handle the situation to one of the right ways. These situations include who to ask, how to ask her, if he needs to buy her a gift such as flowers, and what to do when he drops her off at the door ... Written by Huggo

26 October 2004 | by (Maidstone, Kent, England) – See all my reviews

Again, much like 'Are you popular?' this is funny stuff. Obviously it wasn't intended to be amusing when it was made back then - but then I find it hard to believe that even kids and teenagers who saw this when it came out took it completely seriously. Things haven't changed that much - this is very polite but 'the man,' 'the nanny state' or whatever you want to call it, is still trying to control and 'advise' teenagers. It's all just about sex - and making sure that purity and abstinence are values that teens aspire to.

I have to say I love the scene when they say goodbye - three possible scenarios are given. It isn't until the last one that it's 'just right.' It completely reminds me of a 1950s teen version of the fairytale/fable 'Goldilocks and the three bears.'

Funny, not particularly effective and very, very kitsch.
