    Oh God. I honestly am laughing out of frustration right now. This movie....oh man. For at least the first half hour I considered turning it off because I was bored and didn't understand what the point was. Then I started to become more interested in the male lead character. He was dynamic and at times so honest and at other times so bizarre. I didn't like the lead female character - or the actor either. Towards the end of this movie I started to get really confused as to the storyline and what was actually happening or being said. I was bothered because one of the aspects that I personally think was important - the two leads passing notes to each other - wasn't done to my liking. The notes were on screen for maybe 5 seconds and I therefore was only able to read them half of the time. That and the fact that sometimes the speech/dialog itself was a little difficult to hear properly makes me think I may have missed some key things. As the movie was nearing the end, I was becoming more and more confused and I said to myself "Oh! Wouldn't it just be a total final mindfuck if she goes and does that". Without giving anything away, she totally does that. Therefore, im more perplexed than ever. Mostly because I do not understand the lead female's actions and motivations. She contradicted herself constantly, and I really did not understand her. Damn you weird teen movies that try to be all deep and what not! Damn you! What did this movie teach me? Wounded/damaged characters are far more interesting than the "normal" ones.

    A film about teenagers that comes closer than most to reality, Teenage Dirtbag is explicit, violent, and very very strange. This is yet another tale of the rich girl, and the guy from the wrong side of the tracks becoming weirdly co-dependent. I always wondered how Bender and Claire turned out at the end of The Breakfast Club, and I finally have my answer. The only difference is that they seem to be two ships passing in the night, without ever really being romantically entangled. Yes, there is an obvious emotional response in the character of Thayer, an abused and scarred boy who has the fortune of becoming friends with cheerleader Amber, a studious and yet rebellious senior on the brink of self annihilation. Dirtbag jumps in time frequently to reveal factoids concerning the buildup to a very odd end. No spoilers, but you should know that there are spoilers within the film itself. Once the cat's out of the bag, it's not as much fun to watch. The atmosphere, relationship between the characters, and the overall uneasiness of watching Thayer's volcanic rage was very intense, but without a decent payoff or an ending that makes sense, this film lost me in the shuffle.

    A story based on true events which is going to hunt your thoughts and make you have twisted feelings .The intense is massive between the basic characters and the end is not making things really clear so I suggest you to watch it with company and discuss about it later . I know what you are going to say " Oh no, not again a chickflick movie with obvious script" just like I said at the very beggining, but let me tell you this,i was so wrong !

    Kind if an odd, and interesting film. I have a love hate situation with movies that leave you hanging on the edge of a cliff like this movie did..but all in all I liked it. What a great story about teens, though (and based on a true story, apparently). Which side are you on? are you a greaser? or a socialite? Would you try and cross that line for love, and how would you express it if you didnt know how?
