"Cuthbert mostly stands around and looks gorgeous, leaving the humor to the men. Overall, Hirsch proves he has all the qualities of a leading man, able to embody the mentalities of both a victim and nobody’s fool within the same scene. He is a lover, not a fighter – look out for his rambunctious turn while doused with a hit of Ecstasy". Source: www.filmstew.com
"We’re no longer following the pat formula perfected by John Hughes, adding an unhealthy dose of R-rated randiness and dutifully unleashing the combination on teens expecting bra straps and punch lines. Instead, Greenfield and the screenwriting team of Stuart Blumberg (Keeping the Faith) and David Wagner & Brent Goldberg (Van Wilder, the upcoming Nick Cannon film The Underclassmen) have moved into uncharted territory, using those conventions to evoke a larger truth. Namely, that life, whether you’re 18 or 80, is unpredictable and that, from moment to moment, it can alternate between happy, sad, scary or all of these emotions at once.
As sad and difficult as teenage life may sometimes be, Greenfield has restored its representation on screen to life to a level that no number of gratuitously flashed areolas can equal. And that, dear readers, is a lesson worth learning". Source: www.filmstew.com
