This movie makes GREAT points about parent-teen relationships!
22 September 2001 | by tekka2See all my reviews

Even though two of the lead actors are teens, the real stars of this movie are the adults (due to the versatility of their roles). The teenagers are only expected to act like teenagers, but the parents' roles require them to even act like 2-year olds. The wonderful thing about this movie is the insight that the teens are given into the lives of their parents. I think the writers did a great job showing that even though parents sometimes seem to forget what being a teen was like, they nevertheless had to survive puberty also. This is a fantastic movie for parents and teens to watch together in the hopes of keeping the communication lines open!
