Boys and Girls

Critics Consensus

Boys and Girls feels like a cheap rip-off of When Harry Met Sally. The predictable and stale story fails to engage.

Movie Info

Ryan and Jennifer are opposites who definitely do not attract. At least that's what they always believed. When they met as twelve-year-olds, they disliked one another. When they met again as teenagers, they loathed each other. But when they meet in college, the uptight Ryan and the free-spirited Jennifer find that their differences bind them together and a rare friendship develops.

Audience Reviews for Boys and Girls

  • Jan 17, 2019
    I don't know why I ended up watching this film. I knew it would be bad, but I went and watched it regardless. Now I'm sitting here with nothing positive to say, and the guilty feeling of writing a bad review. The film attempts to create a funny, but darker romantic comedy for the Prince Jnr market. The film never develops into anything of interest, and the characters don't have a great connection. The filmmakers miss a chance to create interesting characters, but they throw that to the side with developing Biggs. The best scene for Biggs is the final scene in the credits, but even that showcases the filmmakers weren't sure of the audience for the film. This could have been a better film had the filmmakers focused on cleaning up the humour and focusing on the core story. 12/01/2019.

    Not bad. Predictable, but still watchable.

    Robert Iscove really has a niche. He directed my most pleasing of guilty pleasures, "From Justin to Kelly," as well as the 1999 "Kiss Me" klassic, "She's All That" (which really hasn't held up). In this little-known year 2000 sophomore effort, he combines his penchants for awkward meet-cutes, attracting opposites, and meticulously choreographed impromptu dance parties, and it all goes down smoother than a chicka-cherry cola. The movie shares many familiar ingredients of its predecessor and other 90s teen classics: Freddie Prinze Jr. (this time as the Lainey Boggs-esque nebbish pantywaist, rocking the sk8terboi middle-part), Jason Biggs (as the frosted-tipped doofus), sweet-red Alyson Hannigan, and the requisite everybody-knows-what-they're-doing dance sequence, scored by none other than Fatboy Slim! Although "She's All That" is probably most remembered for that iconic scene, the one here calls for less suspension of disbelief. Jennifer knows the dance moves, and Ryan tries to keep up, more or less succeeding by the end. The club scene is more organically woven into the story than the perfect Prom breakdown. The movie also starts out exactly like the more recent "No Strings Attached" (which probably borrowed from this) - Ryan and Jennifer meet several times over ten years - but unlike the puppets on strings that are the characters of NSA, R+J (heh) do more than navigate the aftermath of casual friend-sex; they navigate a real friendship complicated by the past, present, and future. The storyline isn't groundbreaking, but in comparison to all the movies "Boys and Girls" reminds me of, it has a stronger driving conflict. Claire Forlani is way too old to play a college gal, but she is charismatic, charming, smoldering, delicately bony, breathy, and willowy and wounded as usual. She also rocks some great fashions - that weird hoodie sweater vest/cargo pants/Chucks combo AND that white backless top/wide-leg pants ensemble. Yowza.

    Awe come on everyone! This was cute. How can anything with Freddie in it be bad? Cute romantic comedy. Jason Biggs was pretty funny in this, which really added to it. Maybe not their best work, but I enjoyed it.
