A surprisingly entertaining movie about a girl who describes herself as 'the school whore' and a young man classmate who decides to come out and declare to the world he's gay. Some great lines, such as, the gay kid's father is in jail for burglary and had an accident with broken glass. Tells the jailer, "I need a doctor. My ass is bleeding like hell!" Jailer replies, "That's news in HERE?"

The movie was good for some chuckles and I suppose it addresses some real issues in the 1980s. I suspect in this brave new 21st Century most of that stuff is fairly humdrum and only worthy of yawns.

The sex is mostly innuendo, understated. No slow motion fornication scenes, no gratuitous tit shots. And the gay thing is mostly tastefully handled.

Slow start but gets better! Fun, quirky coming of age story. Characters are loud and vulgar (which I love) and they deal with heavy situations. Great cast! For an indie flick it has great performances, funny parts, serious topics and a great 80s soundtrack!

This movie suffers from a severe identity crisis. Does it want to be a brash satire like “Clueless”, a comedy about empowerment like “Legally Blonde”, or a contemporary farce-with-a-heart like “The Opposite of Sex”? It is not as skillful as any of these, and what’s more, its uneven nature extends to the film-making process as well, mixing in elements of irony, “magical realism”, and finally ending in conventional “uplift”. It’s a waste of a very talented cast (including a truly surprising turn by Milla Jovovich). Frankly, it’s just a mess.

I found this to be better than the DVD jacket implied ! A sensitive quirky coming-of-age road-trip buddy flic. (...and I cried at the end !!)

One of the most Disappointing -Unwatchable films I’ve ever seen this year. Really a dumb movie. "I fast forwarded all the way." It would be a waste of money to buy.

Just couldn't get into this one. There was a relatively fresh feeling road trip story. Quirky-ish characters. A lolita-type competant lead. The flamboyant fat kid and the dialogue in this movie just flopped for me. The acting was pretty good from everyone, but I think they underused Macy. He could have brought alot to my liking of this film with a bigger, better role. More or less, the ultra gay fat kid and the shifting facial expressions of a bag of flour didn't make for an entertaining flick for me.

This movie really stats off slow but it gets better once the road trip begins.

Dee. You. Dee. DUD. Absolutely awful. Poorly written 'paycheck' movie for Macy, Steenburgen, etc. Juno Temple does have talent; unfortunately this abomination was not a suitable platform to display it properly. ½ star for her, some '80s nostalgia, and 'Joan' (the expressive sack of flour).

I didn't manage to watch all of it. I'm rating it and commenting on it as a reminder to myself not to pick this up again.
