Trivia

The song Laura Lee dances to in the flash back is "Kool Thing" by Sonic Youth. The movie's title comes from their 1988 album, though "Kool Thing" appeared on their 1990 album "Goo." A major character is named Thurston, which, continuing the theme, is likely taken from Thurston Moore, the band's leader. See more »

Goofs

Caroline's car is a first-generation VW Rabbit, from the late 1970s or early 1980s, which would not have airbags. But when she gets in an accident, an inflated airbag is shown. See more »

Watch it&Forget
28 July 2013 | by yas_min84See all my reviews

I think it was a nice movie to have fun for couple of hours and then forget about it. If you are looking for a relax time, i can recommend this movie. This is a teen romantic comedy that gives you exactly what you expect. They meet, they fell in love, nothing surprising or shocking but not cheesy. The performances are quite good,and the movie drag you inside but that's it. Don't expect anything revolutionary or inspiring except for having 2 hours fun.

Actually, I realized only after the half of the movie that I saw this movie before. So, yes. I watch this movie twice just because I forgot that I watch it before. Long story short, it is a fun movie just to watch and forget about it until you watch it again.
