The First Time isn't a groundbreaking film about teenage love, but it's cute and funny, and may spark good feelings of nostalgia for your high school years, even if you, like Aubrey, couldn't wait to get out of there.
The highest praise that I can give to this movie is that in the first fifteen minutes, I was rolling my eyes at these kids, and by the end, I was eager to re-watch that opening scene, to get to know them all over again.
