I like this movie too
I went to see an early screening of Kids in America also (probably thesame one as "melinalives"). I agree with most of what she had to say.It was really enjoyable. It's pretty funny (especially one scene withsame sex kissing where I couldn't hear a couple of lines because peoplearound me were laughing so hard). It's definitely a comedy, but it alsotackles some serious issues, which for me was the reason I enjoyed it.Yes, there are a couple of times you can see the cracks show becauseit's not a big budget movie, but the lower budget doesn't stand in it'sway (and for me, it was refreshing to see a teen movie that was smart).There is an homage to old 80s movies like "Sixteen Candles" that'sreally cool. I think melinalives said it right when she commented that"it's heart is in the right place". The performances are really good (Idon't know who the lead boy is, but he's charming). If I were to findone fault with the film, the first ten minutes or so are a little bumpybut then it finds it's groove and I really got into it. And the lastkiss was awesome... I'll be looking for it in the Guiness Book of WorldRecords.
