The Beautiful Ordinary
This take on teenage suburbia in the age of the cell phone and the belly ring revels in the bright, gleaming surfaces of its middle-class milieu, all the better to draw out the shadows of its tree-lined streets. It's the last day of school in the year 1999, and kids just want to have fun. That, at least, is the plan.

Strange take/homage to Linklater's School Daze. Its a weird end of high school movie. But I kinda loved it.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is the 1999 version of Dazed and Confused. Enjoyable, but no where near as good as Dazed and Confused. But there are some scenes in here that are HILARIOUS. Particularly the shroom scene. And it's worth seeing for that alone!
This movie to me was just okay. I don’t see the point. There truly was no storyline, it was just a bunch of kids getting wasted and drunk and acting like ass throughout the whole movie. Parts of it looked familiar in the beginning, but not enough to say I have ever seen it. Amber Heard was friggin adorable like always and Lindsay Fonseca as a lesbian was super hot. That is what this movie had going for it. It did not seem that there was a defining moment where you can say “This is the plot” and watch it all play out where you needed to see how it was going to end.
