    ★★★

    Pretty cute for a high school comedy. Suffers from some cringeworthy moments and unrealistic elements, but overall it's smarter than it has any right to be.

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Totally overrated. Joseph Gordon Levitt was kinda a prick and he didn't deserve her anyway. Such a run of the mill romance.

    Aptly named.

    ★★★★

    Rewatched this today with low expectations and it honestly holds up pretty well. Sure, there are some cheesy late 90s/early 2000s moments here, but overall it's a lot less ridiculous than it could have been.

     It's amazing to note the contrast between this film, the start of the X-Men universe, and Logan, which may be the end of it. There were a few rocky patches, but overall, the evolution has been great.
