Storyline

Greg is near the end of his senior year in high school, wanting to go to the prom, eyeing Cinny (the school's beauty with brains) from afar, and regularly trippin', daydreaming about being a big success as a poet, a student, a lover. His mom wants him to apply to colleges, but Greg hasn't a clue. One of his teachers, Mr. Shapic, tries to inspire him, too. He finally figures out he can get close to Cinny if he asks her for help with college applications. But friendship isn't enough, he wants romance and a prom date. So, he tells a few lies and, for awhile, it seems to be working. Then, things fall apart and Greg has to figure out how to put the trippin aside and get real. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good movie
1 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a really funny movie. The acting of stars such as Donald Faison, Deon Richmond, and Guy Torry help this film alot. the best parts are the dream sequences. Now that's funny. I would recommend this movie to ghetto comedy or just comedy.

Overall the movie is funny and people should lighten up on what they think. Rating 9 out of 10.
