First of all, I thought the performances were believable and likable. Armstrong and Zegers have a cute chemistry and their individual performances were delightful. Even though the film is predictable, I really wasn't going to give it a hard time for that, because the performances are charming, the movie itself is well done and just a fun time, and I really don't think a film should be judged just because you know what's going to happen; it can still be satisfying and good fun. It's not meant to be an Oscar winning masterpiece, and it shows, but with the material they try to work with, they pull off a current, fun, teen rom-com.
In the end, It's a Boy Girl Thing is nonetheless just a nice film to watch from time to time if you enjoy it for what it is. Armstrong and Zegers, as well as all the supporting actors and actresses, look like they have a fun time giving pleasant and congenial performances. The material is fresh for a plot that's running out of ideas and the movie is just well done from start to finish. I am glad I had the chance to watch it.
