I was really quite suprised about how good this film is. You read it and might think "oh god another cheesey romantic movie", but you are so wrong. Kirsten Dunst in particular was outstanding, her portrayal of a crazy out of control 17 year-old who is soft at heart and wants to do the right thing but needs guidance. Jay Hernandez deserves alot of credit too, his fresh face and charisma ooze out on screen, he proves he is a good actor. Basically get this film, i would be shocked if your dissapointed!!
