Storyline

Peter loves his next door neighbour Erica and, on the advice of his grandfather, decides to camp out on her front lawn for the entire summer, or until she agrees to go out with him. His father is none too happy about the idea and refuses to let his son back in the house, even to get a change of clothes. Peter's friend, Matt, thinks Peter should give up on women (like he has) and just have sex with fruit, and have a total devotion to masterbation.

A wonderful surprise
30 January 2002 | by jmljdSee all my reviews

By complete accident, I stumbled across this very funny film. I had never heard of it, nor have I seen any of the other works by the director (who was also given writing credit). However, I recommend this movie to anyone like me! Let me begin by saying that I am a 30ish professional with the unenviable ability to remember most all of the movie lines from every movie I've ever enjoyed (and a few that are too painful to forget). True to form, after seeing this only once, I have been remembering quips and comments from this movie all day, and I can't help but laugh. Just as the movie A Christmas Story helped me remember my boyish state-of-mind and my first B-B gun, this movie helped me remember my awkward teens and joys of trying to unravel the mystery of girls. Also, I remember this notion of contemplating these overt and extravagant romantic gestures that were reminiscent of Shakespeare that were supposed to make the ladies swoon. Of course by today's standards the film's hero would be called a stalker! Even still, this was a wonderful surprise. It starts unpersumptively and grows on you until you are so interested (in this movie that didn't look interesting or may have looked out of your age group) that you can't stop watching or laughing. The best friend, the a**hole boyfriend, the crazy lady, the charming grandfather, and, lest we forget, the spirit of some Italian forefather add to the cast to remind you of people you know or people you would like to know. I'm sure I'll be talking about this for weeks to come, but all I can think is that I can't wait to see it again!
