Excellent teen movie with style AND substance
8 October 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A very charming and sometimes funny movie about teenagers at high school, I found this piece very engaging, mainly because it brought so many memories flooding back. The agonies of fitting in, of approval, of being 'cool', NOT being a jerk, and most importantly of all, the agonies of dispensing with virginity.

It includes many staples of the teen movie genre - the coolest and most fancied boy in school,convertible cars, the local hip hangout, and of course the geeky boy who ends up being the one with depth and intelligence. It's shot in a zappy style as suits the genre and audience, but not so much that it becomes a distraction.

Short and sweet (83mins), it ticks along at a zappy pace, albeit at the expense of some character development, and there are moments that feel a bit predictable and contrived, but overall this film has a sharpness and edge so sorely lacking in the standard fare produced by Hollywood.
