have seen this, i have to admit i can't get my head around this film and will have to watch it again. i know Josh Peck's weight loss was visible through Drake and Josh but he seems to have lost so much more and looks completely different here, though i can recall a very Josh moment which cracked me up. those 90's references had me laughing, R Kelly! that took me back to sixth form, which when i think about it isn't such a great recollection and i wasn't a fan of R Kelly....

I was thinking about this and how the film at the time that was supposed to speak to my generation that exact year (I think that exact year) was Reality Bites and what a weird film that seems now, given Ben Stiller's career since. It's so insane watching Janeane Garofolo totally inhabiting the 'fat' 'ugly' girl part, because she's very cool and laconic now she's older and you feel like she must CRINGE seeing it, and Ben Stiller must be hiding behind his hands because he's also decided to sex himself up and he's just some dickish clown in it. But I'm going to rent that before I see Wackness to see how well they've got the period detail.

Good to hear about MK - I wasn't sure about this film because of her, but now I really want to go see it!

I can't wait to see this - I am hoping Ben Kingsley can redeem himself in my books after I saw him in (what I thought was) the disastrous Elegy.

i was so excited when i heard about this movie when it was at sundance, but of course i missed it while it was in theaters here and i can't seem to find it playing anywhere. i guess i'll have to keep my eyes open for when it's on DVD so i can check it out.

Lolasvelt, they're both great in this. And this is the second time I've enjoyed Josh Peck in a more serious role - he was critically acclaimed for playing a bully in the movie Mean Creek. It's nice to see him taking these roles in indie films and building up his career slowly.

I'm seeing this for Olivia Thirlby and Sir Ben Kingsley. I heard Josh Peck is getting serious, too. Though I hated that show he used to be in, Drake and Josh.

macneil - I totally agree, the time period just added another reason for me to love this movie. I know some film critics that are older than me have wondered why we're "looking back" to such a recent year as'94 though... wambalus - definitely don't let Mary-Kate put you off if you don't like her, she's only in a couple of scenes.

I love Ben Kingsley but I'm not so sure about Mary-kate Olsen ... I think I'd still like to see it though.

Being set in 94 is a genius idea! Well, for people my age. August 29 is pretty soon, actually, I just hope it comes to my local.

Awesome review PopUK, thank you!! This movie sounds awesome and given that I was about the same age as the characters in '94, I bet I am going to love it.

Well looking forward to this one. Especially some old skool hip hop for the summer. I hear you get to see the rear of Josh Peck here... an odd moment for us Drake and Joshers our there.
