Really a very charming movie
2 June 2004 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Phoebe is an overachieving college student, with a geeky strange personality. Her tastes are unusual, so she doesn't really fit into college life very well. Her goals in life are written down on pieces of paper, and she crosses them off as she achieves them; so really her ultimate goal in life is to achieve her goals in life. She has a roommate Robin who semi-tolerates her, but even Robin has her limits and eventually grows frustrated by her pompousness. One day Robin just decides to pack up and leave to go back to her home -- she'd basically rather be anywhere but couped up with Phoebe. Robin even feels that Phoebe is a bit obsessed with her; perhaps Phoebe is; Robin implies that Phoebe needs a boyfriend. Getting a boyfriend immediately becomes Phoebe's next entry in her goal-in-life list.

Unfortunately, Phoebe is a bit ill-equipped for this task. She meets guys randomly, things go well briefly, and then all of a sudden she decides to show them how much smarter she is than them and things don't progress any further. She has a friend in the 14-year old neighbor boy Frazier across the street, who she can be her natural self with. He doesn't mind her showing how much smarter she is than him, because he is 14 and she is 21, and so he already expects her to be smarter than him. But he's also pretty smart himself, somewhat wise for a 14 year old. Frazier has a younger sister Bug who provides a frantically geeky comedy relief -- she's more geeky than Phoebe. Phoebe asks Frazier to help her take her kayak classes (another one of her life goals), and a bond develops between them.

Meanwhile, Robin the ex-roommate decides to become a roommate again. Robin has had her own little misadventure across Canada during her trip home, so she decides to come back. When she gets back, she finds out about the little friendship/relationship that's developed between Frazier and Phoebe. So she decides to inject a little reality into Phoebe's life by letting her know that in the real-world 21 year-olds aren't supposed to date 14 year-olds. Phoebe says they aren't dating, but Robin says it still looks like they're dating. This sets up a moral dilemma in Phoebe that she wasn't even aware that she should be feeling up until that point.

How the movie ends, I won't tell you, check it out. I give it a 9/10.
