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.

Quotes

Aubrey Miller: I have trouble with someone sleeping in the room.
Dave Hodgman: Oh. I'll take off.
Aubrey Miller: No. It's just... sleep-overs, camp, I always hated them. Not... because I minded being away, but because there was always some mouth-breather next to me.
Dave Hodgman: You don't have to explain, I'll go.
Aubrey Miller: Not... yet. I just... Maybe we could lie here for a minute. And... and I could just close my eyes, see what it's like, is it okay?
Dave Hodgman: Okay.
Aubrey Miller: [they lie together, his arn over her waist] Your heart is beating really fast.

Surprisingly decent
17 March 2013 | by Anon4KGNSee all my reviews

Here's me, thinking I'd have to go through this horrible movie just to see Victoria Justice in it but I was totally wrong. It was quite the opposite actually, I had to go through Victoria Justice so I can watch these interesting characters fall in love.

Yeah, it has its typical teenage moments; parties and stuff but it's a decent love story. Perhaps the movie is too much concentrated on the lead characters but it is forgivable since I enjoyed every moment of them discussing (their) life.

Both of the lead actors are beautiful, charismatic and especially the female lead, interesting personality. She doesn't believe in facebook and twitter and stuff, she wants the old-fashioned way, meeting a boy in a bar or perhaps a dark alley ;)
