Storyline

One night at a friend's house party, a somewhat confident Dave meets a cool and artistic girl named Aubrey. She helps him with his romantic feelings for Jane. They talk about Dave's feelings, and he believes he should tell Jane how he feels. They soon get interrupted by the cops showing up, but decide to walk home together. As the weekend begins, the new friends start to hang out, as well as discuss their relationship... And their virginity. Dave becomes more and more interested in Aubrey, and she reciprocates. Even though she is involved with Roni (her soon to be ex), she has trouble denying her true feelings for Dave. There is one problem, however, Dave is going off to college in another city. Aubrey still has one year left of high school. Will they be able to handle a long distance relationship? Is their love strong enough? Or will Dave chose Jane, the girl of his dreams instead.

In the final scene where Aubrey decides to run back to Dave, who is still at his car, you see her drop her bag to the ground to make out with him. In the next scene however, they change the camera angle of them making out, and the book-bag is nowhere to be seen. See more »

She met Dave in the best day of her life!
5 October 2013 | by jingbao319See all my reviews

It has been a long time since I watched such an awesome teen movie. I always want to find a movie which can represent our feeling when it comes to first love. And this movie is the ONE!

Aubrey is sexy and dependent, more mature than girls of her own age. Dave is smart but shy most of the time. Both of them are great people and when they meet each other, the chemical just burst.It is so hard to find someone you can just keep talking to. So when they are talking about dream, traveling, hobby, I can't help smiling because this is so real. Although some of our experience is way much personal, we just want to share our thoughts with the ONE for no reason.

This movie also reminds me of Flipped. Both of them are about first love. The most different part for me is that Julie in Flipped is brave while Aubrey is more vulnerable and sensitive.But at the end of the day, you'll have your own happy ending.

In addition, I used to check the ranking before I watch a movie. After watching this, ranking is of no importance any longer. This movie is just so real, so romantic and so awesome!!!
