Bil’s rating (out of 5): BBBB.
USA, 2000. Branti Film Productions, Cockamamie. Screenplay by Amy Heckerling. Cinematography by Rob Hahn. Produced by Twink Caplan, Amy Heckerling. Music by David Kitay. Production Design by Steven J. Jordan. Costume Design by Mona May. Film Editing by Debra Chiate.
Amy Heckerling follows her excellent Clueless with this less successful but still very appealing teenage romance about a big geek (Jason Biggs) who moves to the Big Apple for school and meets a free spirit (Mena Suvari) who sweeps him off his feet. Problem is, she’s already attached…to their professor (Greg Kinnear). The film’s pace is very mellow, something that won’t appeal to all, but I really liked the feeling that I was lazily hanging out at a Manhattan café for a couple hours.
