    Very witty comedy. Now where did Benny Lee go after his performance here..Lake Placid?

    A terrific coming of age story about a kid who really doesn't fit in anywhere. A brilliant look at finding one's place in the world. Placid Lake (Ben Lee) is a goofy, free-spirited, creative kid who tries to make it in the corporate world and to suppress his artistic side. His BFF Gemma (the beautiful Rose Byrne) is a brilliant straight-laced kid destined for great things. Will they embrace who they are (and each other) or will they conform to society's pressures and live lives of quiet desparation? This was laugh out loud funny and heart-breakingly sad and in the end, quite an entertaining film. Natasha Richardson was brilliant as Placid's hippy-dippy, new age, laisse-fare mother, and Claire Danes graced the screen with a brief, one-line appearance. But Lee and Byrnes make the film worth the time to watch it. One finds oneself rooting for them as individuals and as a couple. Great fun!

    Somewhat silly movie. After being picked on his whole school existence, Placid Lake decides to starts work in a 9-5 job just to spite his hippie parents. Placid's best friend (Gemma) seems to know him better than Placid does himself. The Aussie accents give away the origin of the movie.

    harmless, fun, off-beat coming-of-age story with a few quirks
