Storyline

His parents named him Reginald Regineld. His friends call him "Ditto." At the age of eleven he decided he wasn't going to do anything with his life. And that was going pretty well until senior year when he saw Tracy. This wasn't so much love at first sight as much as it was "completely-head-over-heels-gonna-get-her-at-any-price-even-if-I-make-a-complete-fool-of-myself" love at first sight. And it would burn for decades. Whether she loved him or not. Written by anonymous

Funny, moving, sweet, sad and real!
15 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also saw the film at the Philadelphia Film Festival and I agree with the other reviewers that there was a lot to think about in this film. It did take me a little while at the beginning of several scenes to figure out which set of characters I was seeing, the teenagers or the adults. But once all the characters were introduced, it was easy to follow. The film is beautifully shot. Where did the director find a corn field in LA? (where he said it was filmed) and I loved the soundtrack. The music was never cloying or over-used but fit the scenes thematically.

I liked the notion of the adults returning to their memories (good and bad) as we really do in life...remembering conversations, regretting actions or inactions, for what seems like FOREVER. The movie reminded me of the film Memento, because of the unusual "chronology" of events, but that only made the choices the characters make seem even more poignant. Great acting....it's hard to believe this film was made by a first-time director. Funny, moving, sweet, sad and real!
