Teenage kicks
16 July 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As far as mumblecore goes, this is the best of the lot. Why? Because it's about teenagers, so their mumbling awkwardness seems natural and unaffected. Seriously, people over 17 years old shouldn't be conversing in grunts and "yeahs" and "dudes". Which is generally why mumblecore sucks, because instead of empathising with the characters, you really just want to punch them in their idiot heads. Hence, this film comes across as an honest depiction of a naturally evolving relationship, filled with doubt, wonder, insecurities and all that other lovably solipsistic mumbo-jumbo that makes sense when it comes from TEENAGERS falling in love for the first time. Plus the final scene at the fun park is super pretty and magical and makes you wish you were a kid again.
