"I first saw this movie while still in the making. Wonder why? Because it was filmed at my college! Dana College of Blair, Nebraska. A quiet little private Luthren college in the middle of a Danish comminuty right on the Nebraska/Iowa border, 20 miles north of Omaha. I was there to see all the actors go at it and even be kept up late b/c of the bright lights used at night right beside my dorm window. Any way, it was so much fun watching the making of this film, through the many times the actors practiced to talking with people that were made extras. I can point out my friend Jason many times in the movie, because of his distintive bright red hair and beard. Look for him and count how many times you see him.I loved it when I heard the movie was going to be made there, loved it while they shot their footage, and loved the premiere of it on the WB and watching it with my friends and classmates in the commons room, The Dragons Head.Riley Smith is a gorgoues boy and I think he did a marvelous job in the film alongside Meredith Monroe. It is a teenage flick, but as everyone else says its worth it to watch, because you just get pulled in by everything!You know the line in the movie "The Hawaiians?" Thats there because at Dana College we usually get quite a few students every year from Hawaii and everyone usually calls them the Hawaiians. And it's so much fun to watch them at first snow in the winter.I can't wait to order this DVD, watch it, and know that I was there! Get this DVD and enjoy the same experiences that I loved so much!"
Satisfying, FULL RIDE full of surprises

"I first saw this film as a world premiere on the WB network. At first it looks like this film is just going to be another mindless romp into the world of teenage soaps. And if that is what you are after this film will not fail to satisfy. It has a pretty Meredith Monroe, a Dawson's Creek veteran and a gorgeous Riley Smith, who first caught many a young girl's eye in the Disney Channel Classic, MOTOCROSSED but has lately been getting meatier roles like his recently recurring role on the Fox series "24" and a nice role opposite Ed Harris and Cuba Gooding, Jr. in RADIO.Just when you think you have this film figured out, it takes some very interesting twists. I don't want to give away secrets if you have not seen it but nobody turns out to be whom you thought they were. Like the SIXTH SENSE this is not a cheap shot. Once you learn what is really going on you think back and realize the first parts make even more sense. A friend of mine in the UK has seen it several times on satellite. She says the more you watch it the better it gets. Having seen it just once, I can't wait to watch again knowing what I know now. I will probably watch it more than once just to see Riley."
