Storyline

Gretchen has bigger problems than abysmal fashion sense: She's 17, painfully awkward and stuck in the most unforgiving place on earth - high school. When her obsession with school bad boy Ricky gets out of hand, her mother sends her to an emotional treatment center to recover. She has to travel elsewhere, however, to truly begin to understand why she fixates on the wrong kind of guy. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Gretchen and her mom, with Ricky following on his motorcycle, leave their house and head off to the prom, it is still mid-afternoon as indicated by the level of sunlight and shadows. Yet when they arrive at the prom at the high school, which isn't very far away from where Gretchen lives, it is already completely dark out. See more »

4 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so perfectly realized that I want to kneel down in its presence.

So well written, so well directed, so well shot.

And the cast is incroyable!

Courtney Davis' performance is a masterful physical comedy tour-de-force. An amazing amalgam of the dorkiest girl you ever knew - and an evil hurricane of danger (for those women who dare make out with her man).

I'm afraid to say too much more, because raising expectations for future viewers always screws things up.

But I loved this movie. So gentle. So brilliantly conceived. It builds to an unexpected climax that is completely original, and fantastically realized.

Oh what a movie, what a movie.

Joy joy, joy on earth.
