Melissa Joan Heart did not like the name change, and tried to talk the studio out of it. She worried that Spears music career would not take off and the movie would thus become outdated quickly. See more »

Who would you rather do: Agent Scully or Gillian Anderson?
They're the same person, you idiot.
How about you?
Let's see, a flaky, self-absorbed actress or a gun-toting, badass FBI agent with years of pent-up sexual tension? No contest.
My man. What I wouldn't do to Scully...
I'm sure she's been drooled on before.

I went to this film expecting it to be just a formula teen film. It does have formula to it -- such as ending with the big dance -- but it actually has some interesting ideas too. It is about the images that people hide behind, the distortions that they manufacture to escape from painful reality.
One symbolic scene takes place in a carnival fun house with mirrors that twist and pull reflections into any shape the person wants. This of course is the metaphor for what is happening with all the characters. Another interesting bit of symbolism is the MTV-like video showing the zombie-like behavior of the high school in-crowd compared to images of animals and Nazi rallies.
Yes, it's a teen romantic comedy, but it actually has some real thought in it, and the talented cast play characters that show some depth. The film is a pleasant surprise.
