Get Over It

Get Over It (2001)



Average Rating: 5/10

As with most teen movies, Get Over It is entirely predictable, and there's not enough plot to sustain the length of the movie. However, it is not without its charms.

After an initially winning time, Allison finds herself drawn to the hot new guy in school, leaving Berke in the lurch. At the risk of ruining his unsteady reputation, Berke concocts a scheme for getting Allison back: he will join the school production of A Midsummer Night's

The kind of movie where only some of the characters have last names, this essentially sweet-natured enterprise feels slightly rushed and distracted.

Director O'Haver fails to supply any proper shape or development.

Tired teen fare full of drinking, grossout humor.

Unevenly witty.

[Kirsten] Dunst seems to be a fairly decent actress; why she keeps appearing in the same movie over and over is beyond me.

This one's going down in my teen hall of fame.

O'Hayer has some way to go before doing a John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink) but Get Over It is a headstart.

March 4, 2003 Full Review Source: RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

While this film does not do anything extraordinary for its genre, it has its moments, and Dunst and Foster are able to generate reasonable chemistry in their utterly predictable situation.

There's something almost perverse about a show that only comes alive as the curtain rises and falls...

Sure, calling any flick "better than Van Wilder" is damning it with faint praise...but did I mention that this one's got Kirsten Dunst in it?

Too many times, a strange brand of humor appears and sours the proceedings.

Quite a bit more intelligent than most films in the genre.

Features a dog humping a basketball, an electrocution, a cow urinating on the hero and kids drinking punch filled with vomit.

It's the sort of show Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney would have bounced through 60 years ago.

At least Ben Foster communicates the ignorance and insecurity of being a troubled teen.

It's completely harmless -- taking that as a pro or a con will be entirely up to the individual viewer.

The movie is short, watchable, and altogether serviceable. But that's not enough.

Audience Reviews for Get Over It

Although predictable, I still enjoyed this movie. Who knew Kirsten Dunst could sing?

Let The Party Begin!

Very good movie! I really enjoyed it, it was very funny. Great Cast! Get over it is a cute no brainer that has some good one liners, funny musical numbers, and clever direction. Rent it the next time it rains and you miss the teen movies of the eighties.

Berke is devastated when his girlfriend Allison kicks him out. She takes up with cocky Striker, who claims fame as a singer, and the two of them audition for the school's "Midsummer Night's Dream" musical. Berke follows suit, much to the annoyance of his basketball team buddies Felix and Bentley. Our hero finds himself not only in the play but eventually as one of the leads, partly due to help from Felix's sister Kelly. As First Night approaches, questions need answering - Will Berke and Striker come to blows? Can Bentley take over as the lead dancer? Isn't Kelly nicer than Allison anyway?

What starts as a typical teen comedy turns out to be a very cute and enjoyable if ridiculous one thanks to a minimum of crassness and vulgarity. Helping it along are the charming Kirsten Dunst and in particular Ben Foster who have a nice chemistry together vital for this sort of light weight entertainment to succeed.

Silly movie, but kind of cute all in all. Definitely made me chuckle every now and then. They sure loaded this movie with plenty of familiar faces,
