Plot Summary

Dave (Dylan O’Brien) is an incurable romantic in love with the hottest girl in school, Jane (Victoria Justice). Unfortunately, she only thinks of him as a friend – without benefits. Through a chance encounter, Dave meets Aubrey (Britt Robertson), an alluring girl from a nearby school, which sparks a flame that soon becomes a red-hot romance filled with all the angst, missteps and awkwardness of a first time love! Hilarious and heartwarming The First Time is an unforgettable coming-of-age comedy featuring a sizzling ensemble cast.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: No gratuitous raunchiness here and only a few tired caricatures in a genre usually jammed with them. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Oct 18, 2012

Rotten: This teen romance proves perilously short on substance, insight and novelty, unless you count its characters being afflicted with a case of Juno mouth. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jan 23, 2012

Rotten: There is much to like here, a sense of nuance and nonjudgmental emotional openness, yet Kasdan's teenage miniaturism never quite blooms. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Oct 19, 2012

Fresh: Something of a wonder, a palm-size ball of banter and irony and earnestness that never stops rolling and almost never misses the sweet spots. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Oct 16, 2012

not what i was expecting; in a good way

This movie really relates to teens. The main reason why I liked it was because it was honest and real. It was a legitimate plot that could happen in real life. Not everyone's first time is good (usually it isn't good at all) and this movie showed that. But it shows young love in a realistic way. Don't judge it based on the actors or trailer, watch it first. Most teens can relate to this honest film.

Lived up to expectations

It's a movie made for teens, about teens. It was entertaining and funny, and that's all I was looking for. Is it deep and insightful? No, but it doesn't sell itself to be. I enjoyed it, despite not being a teen anymore.

Amazing movie!

Fantastic lighthearted movie! The cast did a wonderful job. Unlike most other romantic comedies, this movie accurately touches upon some of the more awkward and difficult aspects of young love. I am a bit disappointed that this movie isn't getting more attention and would definitely encourage people to buy it.
