Quotes

Morgan: The thing about a first kiss is, you only have one, and believe me, she's gonna remember it no matter what. So, you've gotta pick the perfect moment, and that moment comes right after you've done something incredible. And you'll know the moment because you'll see it in her eyes, because she will look at you like she's discovering you for the first time, like she's never seen you before, and that's when you move in for the kiss.

This is what should be in theaters right now
7 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie is an incredible testament to youth culture today. I loved every second of it, and almost didn't believe it when I was told it was made by people my own age.

Instead of watching what big studios THINK we want to see, those of us who saw this at Tribeca got to see something that we actually relate to. The characters were not caricatures (which is a first in this genre), and it promotes some *actual* creative thought. The movie also features some incredible young talent in the acting world that was very innovative of the crew to cast.

I loved this movie, I wish I could see something like this more often in the creative world.
