Storyline

In the final days of her senior year Mandy Meyers is forced to change high schools when her father's business moves the family from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California. As attractive as she is intelligent, Mandy sees McDermott High as a chance to start fresh, have some fun, and try things she's never done before. On Mandy's first day of school, McDermott High's two prettiest yet cruelest seniors befriend Mandy and attempt to show her the wild side of Southern California high school life. Likewise, the entire male senior class has also taken notice of Mandy, and she's soon being chased by both an apathetic yet charismatic stoner, and a star football player. Written by Nathanael Coffman

greatness
23 May 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

One of the top ten movies of all time.

It's in the pantheon of the greats such as Citizen Kane, Rashomon, La Doce Vita, The 400 Blows and Weekend at Bernies.

100 years from now people will still be talking about this movie in films schools across the world.

And the actors... they are all on track to have great careers.

The actor who plays the lead reminds me of a young Lawrence Oliver

And the star actress has the screen presence of a young Meryl Streep

The cinematography was exquisite

If you see one movie this, or any, holiday season, make it "Getting that Girl".

A story that more than entertaining, it's life changing.

I walked away after the movie feeling like I knew what I want to do with the rest of my life
