Storyline

We all wish we could change the past. For Mel that day has come. In junior high, Mel and Gabby were the biggest geeks. Of course, Mel had a crush on the most popular guy, Drew Hesler. When word spreads of Mel's crush, he plays a cruel joke on her pretending to be interested, only to turn her down in front of the entire school. Eleven years later, our ugly ducklings are now swans and Mel is a PR executive. When Mel is assigned to handle the publicity for a new restaurant, she is shocked to discover that the owner is a handsome young entrepreneur named Drew Hesler. Written by Will N.

Its cheesy but whats wrong with that?
7 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved the fact that this movie features 2 of the cast from Popular. I loved that show in high school and i still watch the re runs now! The movie is a little cheesy but hey, whats wrong with that. I mean if your the type of person who is always critical of the films you watch i wouldn't bother with this, but if your bored and want some innocent fun then hey why not. Besides Brian Austin Green is pretty cute!! Give the movie a shot.

The movie begins with every dorky lovesick girls nightmare. Finally asking that hot guy out only to be completely humiliated. Its painful watching it, but stomach it. We then fast forward to the present and find that dorky girl has now grown up and is working successfully in a P.R company. She is no longer the girl she once was, or so she thinks.

Most people would like to seek their revenge for something that happened years ago. This movie explores the possibility of what if that revenge opportunity presented itself to you. Would you go for it?

Don't expect compelling drama here, but This Time Around is quirky and cute. If you enjoyed the Popular series or just like the main actors then sit back and don't read too much into this film.
