Is there room in Manhattan for a decent kid? Can a young woman see past a cad to true love? Paul, from rural upstate, comes to New York City for college. To keep his scholarship, he must study hard and do well. That makes him a loser to his partying roommates who connive to kick him out of their suite. He's assigned a room in an animal hospital. In class he meets Dora, a pretty coed who needs a job to pay for school, and who's the very young lover of their sarcastic and selfish lit professor. When Dora is slipped some drugs at a party, Paul nurses her back to health, and a friendship follows. For Paul, though, it's more than friendly feelings. Can they work things out for them to become a truly lucky couple?Written by
During the scene where Paul sits at the fountain in the quad, the song Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel is playing. This scene is an homage to The Graduate (1967). Jason Biggs actually played the main role of Benjamin Braddock in a Broadway run of 'The Graduate' See more »
When Alcott says, "If Betty Friedan were alive...," this was meant sarcastically. He's probably well aware that she was alive when the movie is set. See more »
It's a teenage romantic comedy about a guy that goes to New York to go to college. He's from the countryside and he feels a bit out of context there, because people reject him for his simplicity. It's a simple story, quite realistic, and it's done in a funny and entertaining way (I especially enjoyed the scene when they do a teenage party inside the vet shop, with all the dogs and cats! It was funny!:). There're nice performances from Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari who do the main characters. The soundtrack is appropriated to a teen movie. It's nothing outstanding but it's a nice and entertaining film. I score it 6/10.
