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.

Now one of my top 5 favorite films.
29 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

I actually watched this movie after "IMDBing" Ben Savage and seeing this as his recent work decided to watch it. Also my Dad grew up in Palo,Alto Cal and I got even more interested. I don't usually watch independent films just because I usually never hear about them. But I actually really connected and liked this film, being around there age and feeling a bit confused in life at times. I sat down and watched and I was amazed with what I saw. So the next morning I made my sister watch it and she was just as amazed. This was by far one of the best I had ever seen. It reminded me of Juno or Nick and Norahs's infinite play list a bit. The performances are brilliant and actually has more truth to them then most movies. All I ask is you check it out. Give it a shot. And you might just find a new favorite like I did.
