Unrelenting Silliness
24 September 2007 | by babybirdie22See all my reviews

If camp is your thing, and you don't mind character actors whose characters are never fully explained, and you want the FLASH and BANG, then this is the movie for you. Total tongue-and-cheek piece of work, especially the costumes (just seeing the main character's final costume is worth the price of the film!).

Grown-ups and teens are treated as distinct species here, and the film handles the theme of teen loneliness and alienation with lots of humor. But it's a little long, and sometimes the film focuses on quirks and gimmicks at the expense of plot--I know, I know, it's camp, but even camp needs a plot!
