Summary

A jilted teenager tries everything he can to win back his ex-girlfriend - including putting his sporting ambitions on hold and donning tights to take up a role in a musical version of a Shakespeare play. Romantic comedy inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream, starring Kirsten Dunst, Ben Foster, Melissa Sagemiller and Martin Short.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The bland title does no favours to this better-than-average teen movie. Ben Foster plays a teenager who's dumped by his longtime girlfriend and then signs up to join her in the school's musical version of A Midsummer Night's Dream in an attempt to win her back. He's aided and abetted by his best friend's younger sister - as she's played by the drop-dead gorgeous Kirsten Dunst, there are no prizes for guessing that maybe young Ben is making moon-eyes in the wrong direction. The daft thing is that it takes him the whole film to realise it. Smartly written and sassily acted, the film wisely avoids drawing too many parallels between its unrequited love theme and that of Shakespeare's play. And, as a bonus, there's an inappropriate but entertaining cameo from Martin Short as the play's campily neurotic producer.
