Eight Days a Week Reviews
The big life changer is the observation of his neighbors. As Peter camps out on Keri Russell's lawn in an attempt to win her over, he observes some odd behavior from his neighbors. Whereas most people have written these people off as freaks, etc, mere observation gives Peter a new outlook. The once odd behavior becomes perfectly reasonable. In the judgmental world in which we live, this lesson has stayed with since I first watched it, and it actually a big reason I watch movies (and I suspect a big reason I became so liberal). Not bad for a teeny-bop romance.
This is a story about a boy who camps out in front of the girl of his dreams' house for the whole summer. While camping out he watches all his crazy neighbors go about their days.
It's a great movie!
