George, a lonely and fatalistic teen who has made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, is befriended by Sally, a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.
Leonard Cohen's "If it be your will" appears on the Various Positions record as a last song. In the movie, Aubrey starts playing the record from the first song, there is no record as far the research go, that would list this song as first on either side A or B. See more »
I thought this movie handled teenage romance, chemistry, nervousness, perhaps actual first time sex, really well. If it's truly the first time for both kids..it can be weird and confusing. I especially enjoyed the music and can't find a soundtrack. :( I thought the characters were original. The conversation between the 3 guys was not untypical of what I had with my buddies back in the day...long ago. The one scene where the guy yells back at them "what's wrong with you assholes..." wasn't really a necessary scene. It appeared the director just forgot to drop that on the floor. However, it would have been nice to have seen a little more interaction between Dave and Aubrey..like the theories he talked about and the discussions he was referring to. Still I'm 52 and I watched it with my teenagers and we all loved it.
