Product Description

Amazon.ca

Populated by a variety of memorable characters, Daria: Is It Fall Yet? packs more intelligent humor into 75 minutes than most sitcoms manage in a full season. With its diva of the disaffected in the title role, MTV's animated series moved into Ghost World territory with this enlightening look at summer vacation, beginning with Daria's dilemma about dating her best friend Jane's ex-boyfriend. Jane's tolerating pretentious bohemians at an artists' retreat, and while Daria's playing "prison guard" at a touchy-feely summer camp, her fashion-drone sister Quinn is getting tutored to compensate for dismal PSAT scores. The razor-sharp script uses Daria's ultra-dry wit and too-cool irony (at times excessive) to skewer everything from upper-crust snobbery to the hazards of adolescent romance. It turns out Daria's outer shell protects a likable adult-in-the-making as she learns lessons that feed her heart as well as her head. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars I KNOW WHAT DARIA DID LAST SUMMER Oct. 9 2003
Format:DVD
Before there was Daria/Is It College Yet? (2002), there was this DVD - Daria/Is It Fall Yet? (1997). This MTV movie follows Daria, Jane, Quinn, and the rest of the crew (with Up Chuck being noticeably absent) as they go their separate ways to muddle through their own versions of purgatory known as summer vacation. Be sure to check out Mr. DeMartino' escape from the OK To Cry Corral (a la One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest). Also included are the bonus episodes "Fire!" and "Dye, Dye, My Darling" as well as Mystik Spiral's "Freakin' Friends" music video. Until someone steps up and puts out a Daria DVD boxed set (hint, hint!!!), this and the College DVD are as close as we're going to get for now.

INTRODUCTION:
Although the Daria series never quite achieved the success of the series that spun it off, Beavis And Butt-Head, the series was no less excellent. This was demonstrated well by the fact that there were TWO Daria movies. Between the fourth and fifth seasons, MTV aired Is It Fall Yet?, and now the movie is available on DVD. Read on for my review.
BASIC PLOT:
This film takes place between the fourth and fifth seasons of the series, and it follows the characters and what they do during their summer off from school. For the summer, Daria is forced to volunteer at a day care center, Jane goes to an artist colony, Quinn gets a tutor so she can improve her grades and get in to a good party school, Mack gets a job operating an ice cream truck so he can pay his father back some money, Jodie finds herself working multiple jobs and internships, and Kevin and Brittany become lifeguards at the local pool. It doesn't take everyone long to figure out that this summer isn't going to be a happy one...
FILM OPINIONS:
To put it simply, if you like the series, you'll like this movie. I especially liked the beach intro sequence. And like the intro before it, the end credits are also nice. Rather than the "alter egos" that the end credits of episodes give you, this one gives you some pictures of "outtakes" from the film. These must be seen to be appreciated. Although this is an excellent film overall, I do have a few complaints. First of all is the absence of some characters. Where's Upchuck? His presence could have added a lot to this movie. Likewise, Ms. Barch is in the intro, but not the actual movie! Her style of man-hating humor is another thing the movie could greatly have benefited from.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best things to come from MTV March 14 2003
Format:VHS Tape
It's a bit of a paradox to think the station that brought us such tripe as The Real World and Tough Enough could have produced such a sharp, witty and well written show. The first movie "Is It Fall Yet?" is a magnificent turning point in the series as well as a stand-alone movie-length episode.
The movie centers on each of the characters' summer activities ranging from Quinn getting a tutor for the summer, Daria being forced into volunteering for a lame summer camp and Jane taking a two month stint at an artist's colony.
Even if you're not familiar with the characters, you'll be rolling at all the jokes and dry wit that Daria and Jane spout. What makes the movie a step up from the series is that several of the characters start to grow, especially Quinn. With a little help from her tutor she finds that she doesn't have to be as shallow or dumb as her fashion club friends. Some of the minor characters don't end up doing that much (Mack, Brittany and Kevin, for example). But I defy you to try not to laugh hysterically when Mr. DeMartino snaps, pulls the sink from out of the wall and throws it through the window after all of the campers are cooped up inside.
As a little bonus on the video, there's a music video for Mystik Spiral's "Frickin Friends". I only wish I could have seen the DVD to see what other extras there might have been.
"Daria: Is It Fall Yet?" is an excellent movie packed with great wit, humor and characters. Do yourself a favor and give it a look. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will it ever be fall yet? Aug. 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This TV movie shows what the characters do during summer break. Daria volunteers at the It's OK To Cry Corral, Mr. O'Neill's touchy-feely summer camp for overly sensitive children, where his regimen of staying indoors and exploring the "inner child" is not popular with the campers. Meanwhile, the other counselor at the camp, angry Mr. DeMartino, proves much more popular with the campers and rediscovers his passion for teaching, and Daria tries to bond with Link, a lonely young boy who is just like her.
Daria also tries dating Tom for a while, but becomes alienated by the lifestyle of his super-wealthy family and starts pushing him away. Jane goes to an artists' colony in the middle of nowhere for the summer--partly to get away from Daria, whom she still hasn't forgiven for stealing Tom away--and has trouble making friends with the other artists, whom she finds pretentious. She does make one friend, Allison, until she finds Allison is actually a bisexual who only wants her sexually. Eventually, Daria and Trent pay Jane a visit. Daria and Jane finally make up for good, and Jane even suggests that Daria give Tom another shot.
Quinn decides to spend the summer getting tutored so that she can improve her PSAT score (and get into a "party college"). She starts to like learning new things, and develops a crush on her tutor, David, who doesn't feel the same way about her but tells her that she has a lot more potential than the "loser friends" she hangs out with.
Brittany and Kevin get jobs as lifeguards, and naturally can't do anything right. Jodie is forced into spending every waking moment doing extracurricular activities, and Mack gets a hellish job driving an ice cream truck to pay off a debt to his father.

5.0 out of 5 stars a gem among the MTV toadstools............
Daria was the last semi-intelligent program to be found on MTV. Now that it's gone, there's basically no reason to add this channel to those you normally surf. Read more
