An author who returns to his hometown to deliver a commencement address to a class of graduating high school students has to deal with his feelings for an old flame as well as the advances of a student who has the hots for him.
The film centers on a successful author who is forced to confront an unrequited high school crush when he returns home to deliver a commencement address to graduating seniors. Shasta O'Neil, a sexy high school senior flirts with the visiting author and invites him to the prom. The film is described as a "knowing-your-age comedy".Written by

You can say yes now, and you can always say no later. But if you say no now, then you'll never ever have a chance to say yes.

Being a Winona Ryder fan, I saw this listed in her credits but had never heard of it. A cute concept for a movie is destroyed by a non-charismatic, lifeless and dull performance by Mark Polish. DULL! And when he speaks you can't even hear him! The actors around him (Winona, Hilary Duff, Sean Astin) are hilarious but can't save the movie. Hilary is a little too old now to play the High School dreamboat, but she pulls if off anyway. Too bad it's a bore, because the film has nice production values and decent writing. Who knows what really happens when a movie is made, but I'm sure Polish's lack of anything other than arriving on the set is the reason this wound up in Red Box and Netflix without ever being in theatres.
