In this charming critically-acclaimed tale of first love, Lloyd (John Cusack), an eternal optimist, seeks to capture the heart of Diane, an unattainable high school beauty and straight-A student (Ione Skye). He surprises just about everyone-including himself-when she returns the sentiment. But Diane's over-possessive, divorced Dad (John Mahoney) doesn't approve and it's going to take more than just the power of love to conquer all.

Cast & Crew
Cusack and Skye's relationship develops nicely and believably, but Crowe has not written an entirely convincing character for the latter to play.
At last, a teenage love story with real characters instead of cliches, poses, and attitudes.
The film is all charming performances and grace notes, but there are plenty of worse things to be.
The cast is irresistibly charming, down to the bit parts by Lili Taylor and Amy Brooks as Lloyd's best friends.
Smart, well-developed characters, believable situations, and a solid emotional investment for us in the film's people and circumstances
A movie like this is possible because its maker believes in the young characters, and in doing the right thing, and in staying true to oneself.
