Storyline

In 1957, when second-graders Bryce Loski and Julianna "Juli" Baker first meet, Juli knows it's love, but Bryce isn't so sure and tries to avoid Juli. By the sixth grade, in 1961, Bryce tries to get rid of Juli by dating Sherry Stalls, whom Juli despises.

Goofs

In the bidding war between the girls they get up to $50. This would have been a lot of money in 1963 and close to a weeks avg pay for most people. 14 year old girls having this amount of cash to spend on a high school event would have been highly unlikely. See more »

Brought back some memories...
15 November 2010 | by kabirkunwarSee all my reviews

The first few minutes sent me back a decade reminding how much we avoided girls or getting our names attached to one..

I really liked how the story showed a basic fact (mostly at least) :

"The one you love doesn't love you back, and you don't love the one that loves you!"

Though the main story is not that all can relate to, the background or the base of the story was really nice. The character development was good, not like many movies which focus on only the main characters. Though the story was a little predictable, the movie is enjoyable and among a few to which we can relate to.

This movie is definitely worth a watch.

And it deserves an 8 out of 10.
