"A hapless but hopeful Dylan O'Brien pines for popular
girl Victoria Justice while bonding with cynical platonic
pal Britt Robertson in this enjoyably awkward love
story. It's indebted to retro high school flicks like
Some Kind of Wonderful and Can't Hardly Wait, but pays
that debt off with wit and emotion."
Matt Sullivan: In Touch
