Kirsten Dunst were so different and so young in this movie. The story is pretty much very ordinary. However, the directing and acting was great. It also leave out the racial differences between the couple. Touching movie about how a girl wanted to be loved and accepted in her environment, especially family wise. Romance movie that is realistic and also touches the family part, where in many romantic movies it haven't seen as an important matter.
I love this movie. Had not seen it in a few years, but like it just as much now as I did the first time I watched it. Definitely a very different role for Kirsten Durst at the time. (Not including Virgin Suicides - but still in that she was the glamourous and pretty girl). She is very played down through most of it, with greasy hair and no make up, as she plays a troubled, suicidal teen. Still attractive, of course, but there is a flatness to her (deliberately), that she does not normally have. At heart this is just a nice film about acceptance and being understood.
The directing is very impressive but the story is not. The characters are 2-dimensional and sub plots pass in and out of this film for no apparent reason. Story-wise it?s a mess, visually its stunning. Typical John Stockwell film then eh!

Well-constructed and credibly played characters fuel this high-school romance, which involves a scholastically dedicated Latino guy who loses his academic focus after falling in love with the deeply troubled WASP daughter of a wealthy congressman. The fairy-tale conclusion is a bit too pat, but two leads generate a lot of goodwill along the way.
Kirsten Dunst leads the cast in Crazy/Beautiful, and unconventional romantic film about star-crossed lovers. When the troubled daughter of a congressman falls for an overachieving football player from the inner city, the two begin a torrid romance. The plot's a little formulaic and falls into some of the trappings of high school love stories, but the writing puts some new spins on the material that keeps it fresh. And, Dunst gives an outstanding performance that shows impressive depth and range. Additionally, the soundtrack is especially well-done and brings a lot of energy and passion to the film. Despite having a few cliches, Crazy/Beautiful is a smart and sincere film with compelling characters.
Kirsten Dunst is one of the most versatile young actresses in Hollywood. Jay Hernandez is great in this too. A touch disturbing for a teen romcom, but if you like things gritty, realistic and dark this is great. Opposites do attract, but they never and never should last.
A cute love story. Jay Hernandez is an eye catcher in this sweet movie. Kirsten Dunst got on my nerves for her antics but the story was not bad. ;)

Beautiful movie. One of my most favorite contemporary love stories of all time. Aside from the memorable story, it was the splendid performance of Kirsten Dunst in this movie that really made it into a success.
A cute teen-romance movie. Dunst and Hernandez performs a lovely couple. And soundtracks are totally amazing !

This movie was wonderful. The guy in it, was effin' hot, I still don't quite understand why a guy looking like him was interested in a chick looking like Kirsten(no offence, she is one of the best actresses) but still. Any-who, this is still one of the greatest movies. Can't get enough.
