But with the help of his best friend Felix's sister Kelly, he follows his ex into the school's spring musical.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?

In the film, Dennis says to Berke "Who marries their high-school girlfriend anyway?" with Felix adding "And don't say Macaulay Culkin!" Ironic considering their costar Mila Kunis (Basin) started a long-term romance with Culkin a year after this film was released.

Continuity: When the boys go to the club at the beginning of the movie, Felix walks over to his sister. He's wearing a long sleeve jacket over a black short sleeve shirt. When he takes he takes the drink from his sister, the arm grabbing the drink is a bare arm with a black shirt, but in the next shot, he's still wearing his jacket.

Striker: I don't even know what you're doing here Landers, but if some guy dazzled his way into my ex-girlfriends fancy I'd be doing the same thing... only I'd have a bigger part.
Berke Landers: [nonchalant] You dropped your sword.

User Review

Yes, it is a teen flick.

Rating: 8/10

Out of the many, many teen flicks out there today, I find this one my favorite of them all. It stands above the rest mainly because it does not take itself seriously. In the first, oh, five minutes of the film you have: 1) A guy being sucked into a vortex when his girlfriend breaks up with him and 2) A full-on song and dance number. Yes, this movie is stupid, and it knows it.

I find the first, oh two-thirds of the movie to be amusing, but nothing really special. The last third of the movie is where the film really picks up pace and made me fall in love with it. The school play is surprisingly true to real life (at least how theatre was at my school) and the song/dance numbers are priceless. I often find myself fast-forwarding to these scenes when I don't have the time to watch the whole thing.

Good movie for when you want to shut off your brain and just enjoy mindless entertainment.
