That was one of the good ones
27 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no expectations when I sat down to watch this movie. The only reason I even got it was because Schuylar Croom was in one scene. I'm so glad that I did watch this one thought because it was hilarious.

The plot is similar to all romantic comedies. Nerdy guy meets edgy girl. She doesn't like him. He likes her. By the end they like each other. To be honest, this formula is so old that I was fairly certain I would hate this movie once I saw where the plot was headed. And to be sure the nerdy guy cliché is in full effect here. There are times where I just wanted to scream at this guy to man up just a little bit, but in the end he did not let me down. By the way, the final scenes are worth watching the rest of the movie.

The girl also seems like she is trying too hard to be cool, but for the most part, it works. Also, there is very little on character development. You pick up a lot of little things, but the movie seems to rely on the fact that the formula is so familiar that you already know these characters.

Despite all this, the movie has what most popular comedies in this era lack: jokes. A lot of the main characters humor is reliant on physical comedy, but he makes it work.

All in all this is a quirky comedy that people should check out. Some parts will have you rolling your eyes, and some will have you cheering. The latter outweighs the former.
