Melissa Joan Hart,

Freddie Prinze Jr.,
In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
When Berke Landers, a popular high school basketball star, gets dumped by his life-long girlfriend, Allison, he soon begins to lose it. But with the help of his best friend Felix's sister Kelly, he follows his ex into the school's spring musical. Thus endues a love triangle loosely based upon Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", where Berke is only to find himself getting over Allison and beginning to fall for Kelly.Written by
Late singer and actress Aaliyah was considered to play the role of Maggie in the film, but the part was given to Zoe Saldana. See more »
In the bench kissing scene, the editors decided to digitally remove the beer bottle from Kelly's hand. They didn't replace it with anything so it looks like she has a deformed claw for a hand when she walks to the bench and sits down. Later in the scene, the bottle is off to her left where there was no bottle before. See more »
She was the first girl to see me naked. Granted we were 7 years old at the time, but I had a feeling, even then. There's really something about the first girl you play doctor with. Maybe it's cosmic or something. Or perhaps it's just that she's seen your package and didn't run away screaming. Whatever it was, Allison and I were made for each other. A perfect fit. So, when her family moved away, I knew that some day, some how, fate would bring us back together.

No animals were harmed in the making of this film. However, we did manage to sprain two ankles, break one wrist, squirt one extra in the eye with chili and drive our UPM into insanity. See more »

I was bored, Its Sunday, and there is nothing on a out local Cinema (a rather run down dump).. oh hang on.. 'GET OVER IT'.. didn't I see that advertised on the side of a bus shelter? Another teen flick, slumber parties, perfect women, smart ass teenage lads.. Well at least its warm.. lets go and pass an hour or so.. So in I went...
I damned near laughed myself SICK!
Join Berke in his attempts to regain the love of his Childhood Girlfriend (Alison - played by Melissa Sagemeier) by joining the school drama production.. however he is thwarted by the Super Smooth Straker.. but its not easy as Straker can sing, dance, play the piano, and was a member of a boy band.. Berke is Helped and Hindered by his friends along the way leading to some hilarious scenes.
However, Berke is so blinded by his love of Alison, he completely misses Kelly's (Kirsten Dunst) attempts to gain his affections.
However Best-over-acting-and-getting-away-with-it award goes to Martyn Short, who steals the show as the manic producer of the school Drama based on Midsummer Night's Dream.
As the film progresses, so does the humour.. cumulating in a production-within-a-film of the Schools play. Brilliant songs and musical score, however I challenge anyone not to be enraptured by Kirsten Dunst when she sings 'Dream of You' SIGHHHHH!!
Give this film a try, it does not use Semi-Nude girls to sell the film (there is one short swimming pool scene which is Most Pleasant (DROOL), but thats about it.
8/10.. Funniest film I have seen this year
