Quotes

Morgan: The thing about a first kiss is, you only have one, and believe me, she's gonna remember it no matter what. So, you've gotta pick the perfect moment, and that moment comes right after you've done something incredible. And you'll know the moment because you'll see it in her eyes, because she will look at you like she's discovering you for the first time, like she's never seen you before, and that's when you move in for the kiss.

Finally, a film with college-age friends where you care about the characters
30 April 2007 | by lrapoportSee all my reviews

I just saw Palo Alto at the Tribeca Film Festival. I loved this movie. Sure, any movie will seem better when you are seeing it at the world premier with members of the cast and crew in the theater, but this is a film that everyone can enjoy. If you liked Garden State you should definitely see this. For an older reference, think back to American Graffiti. The four high school friends who are home for Thanksgiving vacation meet and then separate for the evening. The movie follows the four on their different experiences. Usually when a movie does this I find that there are only one or two story lines that are interesting but in this case I was looking forward to the return of each character. The characters evolve in ways that are both entertaining and believable because the writing is real and the actors played their parts perfectly. Tom Arnold played the funny character who pops into scenes with wit and wisdom. While in some movies this character is one-dimensional, even this character had depth in Palo Alto. Also, the music was perfect and I hope a soundtrack is released. Be sure to see this movie when it is released.
