Movie Review by Megan
March 1st, 2007

helping me survive teenaged angst

This is a tried and true movie formula. Girl likes boy, girl isn't cool enough for boy, boy sees her beauty by end of movie. And teenaged girls around the world have survived their teenaged angst, pimples, badly fitted bras and high school because of movies like this. Gave them hope that the captin of the football team may just actually want them after all.

There are two people that really stand out in this film: James Spader and Jon Cryer. They are ying and yang. Spader is the guy that we all end up going to the high school reunion praying to find fat and balding, Cryer is the guy we will always wonder if we should have hooked up with. One is an ass, the other a lovable dork.

One of my all time favorite scenes is when Ducky (Cryer) sings his heart in the record shop. That must have been a one take because there would be no way to repeat that perfromance multiple times.

And come on, be honest, you still have the soundtrack.
