it doesn't get points for new storytelling elements but it feels good and very relaxing taking placen the 1950's era
it feels very authentic with the music, the costumes and the atmosphere
Kelly Preston is a joy to watch along with some other unknown actors
young actors playing likeable teenage high schoolers
they face everything you can imagine while being young from popularity to rebellion to crushes to first dates to sex and coming-of-age
the humor works very well when it comes to the raunchy material but it's not in-your-face thank goodness
it's very sweet and very honest
It flowed fine and acting worked but I felt they where pushing the James Dean feel with the lead actor who didn't have a tenth of the Charisma of James Dean.
It had a few laughs and Kelly Preston was good as the not so innocent girl next door, this is entertaining and worth a watch if you stumble upon it late one night on TV.
