The story circles around five friends, with a tender note of coming of age and young first love in it. The setting of the grown up radio star, who finds himself reading his old friend's diary and goes back in time is just there to give the movie some breathing time and maybe some structure. Though that could have been used as a riddle for the audience to find out what happened to the young characters afterwards, by guessing whos who. However, it never develops successfully enough to serve as that. But for the main story, the first half is a little plain, as it resembles all the coming of age movies. However, the best part is yet to come. The drama climaxes from the outburst of the romance to the very distraction of its characters. And here the sweet teenager love movie gains the extra something that it needs to become a truly original movie. Most of its success is due, of curse, to the performances, that just hit the right key (especially if you consider that many of the actors weren't in their teens any more). On the contrary, the "grown up" version of their selves are not as good as the younger ones, and they reduce the drama somehow. Key scene is also the kiss scene, that makes the twist even bigger and more unexpected.
