    Well if I was 16 when I watched the movie the first time it would probably blow my mind. I've watched the movie for the first time just now and I'm not 16. The movie's nice but to me it doesn't feel special.
    What is special and charismatic is Miller's performance.

    It's fine to make a film depicting the naivete and narcissism of youth, but to take it as seriously as TPOBAW did is downright nauseating.

    I think I would have fallen for the giddy quixotism of this film -- with all its forced cleverness and callow spirit of adventure -- had I seen it 10 years ago, when I was living up in my own little high school cloud in the sky. But as an almost-30-year-old, I was put off by the artificialness of the characters and the fanciful world they were determined to create around them.

    Characters and setting aside, I did find the story to be a moving one especially after everything culminates in the end. I just wish it could have been told more authentically with characters truer to how life in high school really is.
