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.

Inspiring...
6 November 2003 | by Toxie2k2See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favourite films, not just because its got a great (although not totally original) plot but also because it manages to inspire at the same time.

This is one of the films that made me want to make films...

I can't see me ever going to the effort that Peter did to get Erica, but anyone who's ever loved someone can understand it :)
