It's not having what you want; it's wanting what you've got
on November 14, 2003
Nice social message wrapped up in hip clothes, cool music, adorable female lead, nerdy hero, and morality tale. But the crux of the flick is about learning to accept yourself, to stand tall for what you believe to be true, AND above all, to recognize when you have what you need. If our hero had realized he should be satisfied when our cute female lead was dating him, well... there would have been no movie. but, he would not have taken such a fall... and not learned such important personal lessons.
Another movie attacking class structure and cliques, but, hey, if it weren't the sad state of affairs, would we flock to see this stuff? No. So, if the shoe fits...
See the movie again. Worth it the second time around.
