Get Over It
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - PG-13

It's 1:30 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
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" 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 sucks.

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
