This production, these situations and characters, are to Shakespeare what advertising is to truth.

As satirical as it is romantic, this is one teen film that is wise enough to span generations in its appeal.

Stiles, whose slightly rushed, impatient delivery sometimes recalls the young Jane Fonda, lets enough sweetness seep into her portrayal to lend even the nastiest retort a hint of forgiveness.

No one in this film is a big star, but everyone is a capable actor.

Debut film director Gil Junger may be a TV veteran making a movie for the Clearasil crowd, but he doesn't sacrifice the story to gimmicky camerawork or overzealous pacing.

The high school romance genre has become so popular that it's running out of new ideas and has taken to recycling classic literature.

Despite a tinny script, the cast puts in fine performances in what is a very unfunny movie. But the praise stops there.

It includes some genuinely funny moments, solid performances from its too-old-to-be-in-high-school cast, and respect for its likely pre-teen audience.

It's so knowingly cute that most of its jokes go nowhere.

The pleasingly acerbic Stiles gives it her all, and if the script had had one-tenth the zest of the now-classic "AtomicShakespeare" episode of the TV series "Moonlighting" she might have managed to make something of the vehicle.

Easily transcends its hackneyed plot through vivacious acting, crackling dialogue, and sympathetic characters.

It's a witty, engaging confection underpinned by an air of sophistication which manages to lend its characters considerable depth and credibility.

The script is surprisingly witty and filled with razor-sharp barbs hurled from just about every character.

What would Shakespeare have made of all of this? I suspect he would have approved.

Miller is outstanding as a father who is utterly convinced that dating is the first step towards instant and complete moral and sexual decay.

Definitely a cut above the current crop of teen-oriented comedies, thanks to an appealing cast of fresh faces, as well as a surprisingly literate script.

Unfortunately, much of this potentially good material is paced like a bad sitcom.

A routine exercise in teen-targeted silliness.
