Awesome, 24 April 2013
Author: TIM HORD ( from Atlanta, GA

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 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 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.
