From the hit series "Daria" comes her first movie, "Is It Fall Yet?", immediately following season 4 of the show. The movie follows Daria and the students of Lawndale High over their summer vacation. Kevin and Brittany become lifeguards, while Quinn and the Fashion Club all get a tutor, David, who Quinn (surprising even herself) has her eyes on. Mack drives an ice cream truck while Jodie is swamped with volunteer work. Daria and Jane have had a fight over Tom, Daria's boyfriend and Jane's ex, causing them to go separate ways for the summer. Jane goes off to an artists' colony where she meets a fellow artist Alison and big-headed instructor Daniel, self-proclaimed genius. Meanwhile Helen volunteers Daria's service at Mr. O'Neill's summer day camp, the It's OK To Cry Corral, with only hoping-to-be-enlightened Mr. DeMartino for company. There, Daria tries to reach out to troubled Link, a 12-year-old version of herself, all while battling self-doubt and slight resentment towards Tom and ...Written by

In the final scene of the movie Quinn answers a question about the meaning of Manifest Destiny. This is the same question answered by her sister Daria in the first episode of the TV series Daria (1997). See more »

Great Show, fun movie
Okay, so it's "technically" a movie, but it's just a glorified extended episode. And it's great! At this point of the series, the savage, witty writers decided to give more depth to the characters and this was their vehicle to do so. The show was known for its dark humor and fast one liners , and though extremely entertaining, the show was teetering on the edge of becoming monotonous. The decision to add major points of conflict amongst the main characters, Daria and Jane, really helped to shake up the show. This movie picks up at the end of season 4. The school year is over, vacation's begun and Daria and Jane's friendship is on the rocks. Let the lessons be learned! It should also be noted, (if you're not observant or not particularly bright) that this is a bridge between seasons. So you'll want to catch up to know what's going on.
Warning: This IS NOT for everyone... The humor is dry, the humor is quick and if you were ever popular in high school and avoided the library at all costs, you will simply not get this movie or get this show. This was created by outcasts for outcasts. If you ever watched "The Breakfast Club" and rolled your eyes when Ally Sheedy's character got a make-over... you'll probably like this.
