Storyline

When Berke Landers, a popular high school basketball star, gets dumped by his life-long girlfriend, Allison, he soon begins to lose it. But with the help of his best friend Felix's sister Kelly, he follows his ex into the school's spring musical. Thus endues a love triangle loosely based upon Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", where Berke is only to find himself getting over Allison and beginning to fall for Kelly. Written by Will Nixon

Quotes

[first lines]
Berke Landers: [narrating] She was the first girl to see me naked. Granted we were 7 years old at the time, but I had a feeling, even then. There's really something about the first girl you play doctor with. Maybe it's cosmic or something. Or perhaps it's just that she's seen your package and didn't run away screaming. Whatever it was, Allison and I were made for each other. A perfect fit. So, when her family moved away, I knew that some day, some how, fate would bring us back together.

Alternate Versions

pleasant comedy, some laugh-out-loud moments
12 March 2001 | by hbsSee all my reviews

In the new tradition of taking a classic work and casting it as a high school romance (I guess this tradition began with "Clueless", which is still the best of the bunch), "A Midsummer Night's Dream" gets turned into "Get Over It", but as a nice (if occasionally heavy-handed) twist, the movie revolves around a high school production of that play. The really funny moments are provided by Martin Short as the nut-case head of the theatre department, and Ed Begley, Jr. and Swoosie Kurtz as the nut-case sex-therapist parents of the male lead. (There is also some nice slapstick involving a hapless exchange student and some unusually humiliating accidents involving the male lead.)

The leads, Dunst and Foster, are solid. I've always liked Foster, and he is quite good here, and Dunst has a surprisingly nice voice (unless she was dubbed, but I think that it was her voice). Anyway, it's pleasant, occasionally inventive within the rigid confines of the genre, and has a few big laughs in it.
