Musical numbers are the best thing about this witty little teenage romance.  is a high-schooler who has just been dumped by his longtime girlfriend and, in his misery, avoids  and her obvious attraction to him…oh that I were in high school again.  gives a funny performance as the school’s obsessed drama teacher who has decided to put on a modern musicalization of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (from whose plot this film liberally borrows). Opening and closing sequences with Vitamin C singing classic hits are the high points.
