Audience Reviews for Teenage Dirtbag

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 !

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.

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?

Two high school students who couldn't be any different from one another are able to "speak" through their writing and some how have some sort of relationship while hardly ever speaking to one another. I really love this movie!! Captivating and you feel for both characters, at least I did anyway. It was clever to have creative writing as part of the movie; I got sucked in bad. Great performances and just an interesting story.
