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.

Trivia

Goofs

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 »

Different from other Teen movies
9 May 2013 | by staceymullen24See all my reviews

Great coming of age teen movie that explores the angst of the 'First Time'. Unlike most teen flicks, the characters don't fall into stereotypes, and they act their age in an intelligent way that does not lean towards Dawson Creek territory. Great from start to finish, and different from most movies in that genre.The teens are normal, the girl and boy you and I know, and now some picture perfect model. The cast were excellent in their roles in fact I have also watched the lead character in Teen Wolf and this is quite a departure from the role he plays in that. The best thing, however, about the movie is the romance was relate-able and normal, and not some unrealistic love story you only seen in movies. What a great ending!
