“Sweetheart, this movie has Ryan Phillippe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt AND Channing Tatum, why I have I not seen this before?” said I. It also has Abbie Cornish, who I like despite not liking her character in Bright Star. This was a pretty good movie, full of drama and tough choices, marking this as a “good” MTV films production.*
*Matt thinks he hates MTV Films, but I argue they can make some darn good movies when they set their minds to it. Check out a list of their films. Despite the presence of Jackass 2.5 and the like, there are some darn good movies on that list. They are especially good a capturing moments in adolescence. (Varsity Blues, Election, Napoleon Dynamite.)
Also, I really like this movie poster. Well done, unknown designer.
