With only the plan of moving in together after high school, two unusually devious friends seek direction in life. As a mere gag, they respond to a man's newspaper ad for a date, only to find it will greatly complicate their lives.
This is the story of Enid and Rebecca after they finish the high school. Both have problems relating to people and they spend their time hanging around and bothering creeps. When they meet Seymour who is a social outsider who loves to collect old 78 records, Enid's life will change forever.Written by

When Enid surprises Seymour at Cook's Chicken and Dana walks in, Seymour spills his ice all over the table and proceeds to scoop it into his cup but when the scene changes the cup is sitting on the table and Seymour's arms aren't moving (the sound effects continue). Then the cup disappears in front of Seymour. See more »

These assholes are saying I have to go to summer school and take some stupid art class.
God, I didn't think that just because you get an "F" you have to take the whole class over again.

After all the credits roll, there's another take of the scene where Seymour (Steve Buscemi) gets attacked by Doug in the minimart. Only this time, Buscemi's characer easily wins the fight, choking Doug with his own weapon, and stomps out triumphantly. He finishes with a bunch of Mr. Pink type dialogue. See more »
I love this movie. It is so simple. Just an episode from the lives of two girls who have just finished high school. Nothing fancy, nothing spectacular, or unusual. Just a situation that we've all been through, but shown through a different set of eyes.
The performances by Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson (hottie), and Steve Buscemi are very good and the story is heart warming and often very funny.
Movies like this are seldom and Hollywood tends to make it's films unnecessarily spectacular these days. It sometimes works, but is often quite ridiculous. Think - Michael Bay.
This is film is highly recommended to anyone who cares about life. 10/10
Rated R: profanity
