Not what I thought
31 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the movie was good it had its funny, nice, and cute moments. But it was not what I expected, the movie didn't have a good concept. It its still cute and shows how hard high school is when your not "popular". It also show how when you start high school your old friends may not even hangout with you anymore, or how one thing may change your life for ever. also when you have a crush just go forth and say it don't be afraid to say it just because you never talk to that person, or because there out of your clique. The movie has a nice story to it but like I said be for the whole 'time travel' concept wasn't that big of a point in the movie. As the whole high school and Cushing concept and trying to fit in. But still the movie was pretty good. You should defiantly consider watching it. You'll probably like it.!
