The lovers' nonexistent chemistry doesn't generate enough heat to light a match.

It felt authentic ...

It's so unexpected and unpredictable and so full of tiny grace notes that its ultimate collapse seems almost irrelevant.

Turns out to be not so much a movie about a Kwazy Person as it is about a Stoopid Person.

A genuinely affecting love story told without a trace of affect.

Audience Reviews for Stateside

Ok romance-drama about two crazy teens [one of them is literally crazy] who fall in love while one is in the Marine Corp. I must say that some of the dialogue between the two main characters was very weird but beautifully poetic in a way.Perhaps this film brought out the sappiness in me. Good performances by Jonathan Tucker, Rachel Leigh Cook [especially], Agnes Bruckner, Val Kilmer, Joe Mantegna, Ed Begley Jr., and Diane Venora. Overall it's somewhat entertaining and worth a watch despite it not being particularly good.
