My Review:
Being a teenager myself, I found this film very appealing. Having mentioned before how I'm not totally keen on typical 'American Highschool Rom-Coms'; I have to admit that I did enjoy this one.
Having said that, there was nothing overly special about the story line or about the way it was written - it has all been done before so I can't credit my like for this film on that. However, the cast for this film is, in my opinion fantastic. Freddie Prinze Jr. plays a very convincing 'high school hunk' and Matthew Lilliard is hilariously funny but Rachael Leigh Cook has to be my favourite character; the contrast between her and other females which play a similar role in other films is vast in that others seem quite fake where as she makes it seem very natural - almost real. 
Overall, despite being made over a decade ago, it's a very funny film that would appeal to most teenagers. Nothing majorly different from other films of a similar genre but well worth a watch for a relaxing Saturday night film.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
Many Thanks to
