kinda go - Felix "I'm just watching my dog Chester
screw the rubber tree."; Burke's mom to his dad
"Burke may want to go home and polish the rocket."

Yes, it must be true; I am easily amused. Why else
would I find "Get Over It" enjoyable? The story was
generic, the jokes were juvenile, and it had shameless shots of
girls in bikinis. Come to think of it, whatís wrong with that?
Get Over It
A Movie Review
"Get Over It" is your story similar to the J. Geils
Band song "Love Stinks." It goes something like, well, he
loves her, she loves him, and he loves somebody else, and you know
what Ė you just canít win. But this is a teen romantic comedy so
you know what, some people do win and itís exactly who you would
think, in this case Berke (Ben Foster) and Kelly (Kirsten Dunst).
Berke gets dumped by the love of his life, Allison (enter Elvis
Costello song here), played by Melissa Sagemiller. But he canít
let go, even as Allison begins cavorting with Striker (Shane West),
the Backstreet Boy-type has been. How does Berke think he can get
back with Allison? Well it seems Allison and Striker are trying out
for the school play, a rock and roll version of "A Midsummer
Nightís Dream" being directed by over-the-top drama teacher
Desmond (Martin Short), so what is a lovesick boy to do? Yep, you
guessed it, Berke tries out for the play. But, Berke needs some
help, and lots of it, and who is glad to assist him? Yep, you
guessed it, Kelly, who also goes out for the play.
I suppose I wonít go into the story much more except to say
that as generic as it was I still found it kinda funny. Kirsten is a
doll, doesnít look bad in a bikini, and makes you wonder why it
took Berke so long to notice she was interested in him; you will
hope Berke isnít stupid enough to get back with Allison because
Sagemiller does a great job at being the chick who didnít realize
what a good thing she had; Striker is one of those characters who
you hope gets what he deserves; and Martin Short is creepily good as
the "stuck on himself" drama teacher.
So what do you get if you go to see "Get Over It?" If
you can appreciate a teen film, for the dudettes you get a cute
romantic comedy and some hunky-looking dudes. But for the dudes, if
you can stomach the romantic comedy, you also get Kirsten in a
bikini, Kylie Bax bouncing around a beach in a bikini, some
gross-out jokes, some masturbation jokes, and a dog humping a rubber
tree. And, oh yea, dudes, if youíre a Carmen Electra fan, sit
through the Sisqo video at the end of the movie Ė you wonít be
disappointed. Thereís almost more things in this movie for the
pubescent boy than there are for the looking-for-love teen girl. Me,
Iím just easily amused, happy that Kirsten is over 18, and can
appreciate a dog humping a rubber tree. Itís 4 stars out of 5 if
you can appreciate a generic teen comedy. For those of you who canít
remember when those jokes were funny youíll think this movie
Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
