man they totally nailed being a teen in the 90's, watching it was like a time warp, except maybe getting stoned with Ben Kingsley. but seeing that brought me back to a time so long ago, especially being young and stupid in love.

good movie. recommended for anyone who remembers phat markers, adidas shell toes, the "dopeness" and the "wackness"

Seemed pretty accurate to me, too (though I'm a bit older, I was in college in the early 90s and then out of college -- and like you I never smoked reefer with Sir Ben)... but it's a pretty good little flick.

(Cheap plug alert) I reviewed it here, too.

How about that scene with Kingsley and that Olsen twin? Didn't that make you squirm a bit, though...?

I really enjoyed the film. I mean it's nothing out of the ordinary, and a pretty plain coming-of-age story. But the film just elevates itself with the picture-perfect snapshot of the 90s.

Since you liked the film, then you should download this.
