I can't hardly wait to see can't hardly wait for a third time. No, really.I saw this movie out of pure boredom one lazy weekend after seeing one matinee, my friend and I left, stopped to admire the poster, oogle Ethan Embry, realized we had nothing to do all day, and after overcoming the initial embarassment of actually going to go see a movie like Can't Hardly Wait, throughly enjoyed ourselves.
Why? Two reasons: Ethan Embry. Seth Green.
Then it became big at this school and everyone started telling me I was exactly like the bitchy female character, so I decided to see it again, cause i was not so sure I wanted to be the bitchy, unpopular, bookish one. On the second viewing I realized she was the only chick who got some, so I did nto mind so much any more.
This is a very simple, stupid movie. Not "dumb and dumber" stupid, but stupid in a "buffy" or "dawson's creek" kind of way. Knowing that, expecting that, and no more, this is a very enjoyable movie.
And anyone who tells you it was exactly like their highschool is just lying and needs to be slapped. It's a very scripted movie. Timing, heartbreak, triumph, fights, the whole scmeal. Terribly predictable. Ironically, the main storyline is my least favorite. Ethan Embry has been pining after Jennifer Hate Hewiitt for four years and is finally ready to make his move. True love, blah blah blah, *yawn*. Too constructed, too obvious. Seth Green's insecure, overcompensating ghetto superstar is much mroe entertaining, more over the top, just plain better. Why you gotta waste mah flavah? Same thing with the nerd storyline. soooo much more engaging. Hell. The sidestory with the band was more memorable than Hate Hewitt. But I just hate her anyways. Bimbo.Simple, entertaining. One step above "The Waterboy" on intelligence scale, but it's a short step. 3 sporks.
