Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Thin, flavorless and heavily garnished with contrivance, this odd couple comedy serves up little but stale whimsy. – Nathan Lee, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: For all its quirky touches, the comedy cleaves to formula in its depiction of how they challenge and change each other. – Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Forget 30-minute delivery -- this brand of indie quirkiness congealed in the late '90s. – Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice, Oct 7, 2006

Rotten: At the end of her spontaneous date, she says it's been the best night of her life. It will not be one of yours. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews


This is a great feel good movie reminiscent of the Brat Pack era; one of those films meant to be watched in the middle of the day. The scenes are gentle with typical adolescent dialogue, making the characters very real and relatable. This film does a great job at avoiding stereotypical and artificial situations, meanwhile Mark Christopher does an excellent job and character development and by the end, you are left with that proverbial good taste in your mouth.

Makes you laugh and cry...

This movie takes an ordinary girl and gives her an amazing night out with an unlikely person. Ethan Embry is amazing, and I have never seen such a real look into the life of a teenager. Not all teenagers are pretty, popular and perfect. This gives a great look into what life can be like for an outsider who wants to look in.

Awesome Movie

This movie was so good! I loved the way the movie conveyed that not all guys are jerks to bigger girls. Cara was hilarious! Very nicely done overall.
