1-2. Uh, yeah. The emotional prettiness and liberated self-discovery the movie is gunning for kinda get eaten away by the unfortunate implications that the story is slathered in. Additionally, Jake Ryan is a strikingly flavorless love interest for all the screen time we spend with him. The flavor we do get is awful: "Caroline's passed out in there and I could violate her ten different ways if I wanted to." Blegh.
very vivid, but stupid to the degree of absurdity. and what was all that about the chinese guy? i thought it was only in my childhood in Lithuania that people used to make moronic jokes about asians. apparently not. and how come the "good" guy trades his own girlfriend? i realise this is just a 15 year old girl's fantasy but still, wtf
