Can't Hardly Wait

Can't Hardly Wait is one of those movies that is so bad it's good - does that make any sense? It's so unbelievably idiotic that it somehow ends up being funny. The dialogue was so ridiculous that I laughed the whole way through and realized that I actually enjoyed this terribly scripted film.

Jennifer Love Hewitt stars as Amanda, a graduating senior whose boyfriend, Mike (Peter Facinelli) dumps her right before graduation. Seemingly unperturbed, she shows up at the big graduation bash that night, only to be accosted by several well-meaning but dimwitted friends. They make her feel much worse with sympathetic but insincere comments!

Meanwhile, Mike talks all his friends into breaking up with their girlfriends - a plan that they don't exactly carry out once they get to the party and start making out with their girlfriends.

Then there's Preston (Ethan Embry), the almost psychotically lovesick guy who has lusted after Amanda for years. He sees this as his big chance - Mike's out of the picture, so now maybe Amanda will go out with him - if Preston ever gets up the guts to tell her how he feels.

Not to mention several subplots about their friends! This movie is sort of a nineties Grease minus the singing and dancing, and with a more profanity. If you're looking for a mind-numbingly dense movie to lose yourself in, this is definitely it.

My Rating = Two Stars
