Ashley's/Taylor's hair colour changes throughout the film. At the beginning, her hair is quite blonde, but when she arrives in Bishop, her hair clearly has had more brown put in, but nearer the end, it lightens again. See more »

The glory of Toast!
28 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie made me want to eat my own face. I'm always excited by how attractive the Olsen Twins are becoming, and the thought of them as young women in their twenties is more encouraging by the day, so where this movie has both of them getting their driver's license...well, I'm just happy to see time passing by so quickly. However, wow! Their movies are BAD!

Clearly, I'm not the ideal audience for this. Not rich, not a girl, not 13, no acute brain trauma that I'm aware of. So I shouldn't have rented this expecting highbrow entertainment, or a steamy seduction scene. Rather, I was treated to smoldering montages of youths enjoying winter sports, miscommunicating as per various modes of transportation, eating at a buffet. And, yes, the wonderful boy-clown, Toast! Good, funny Toast! Toast is a young man who is given the distinct comedic trademark of unintentionally wetting meals that people are excitedly preparing to eat. This happens on more than one occasion, and is surely the high point of the film. God love you, Toast!

I want to stop thinking about this film, it really is making me want to cry. Loud, racking sobs. Oh. Oh.

On another note, and a rather unexpected one: This soundtrack for this movie isn't half bad! Seriously! (I was rather hoping to hear "Fashion Junior High" though. That song rules!)
