Director Tommy O'Haver's (BILLY'S HOLLYWOOD SCREEN KISS) sophomore effort is a breezy teen romance that injects a much needed jolt of wit and energy into an overworked genre. Ben Foster (FREAKS AND GEEKS) stars as Berke, a fairly nondescript basketball player whose romance with the beautiful Allison (Melissa Sagemiller) has made him the happiest man in school as well as the envy of his classmates. Unfortunately, Allison doesn't feel the same way and dumps him in the opening minutes of the film. Determined to win her back, Berke auditions for the high school play, "A Midsummer Night's Rockin' Dream," in which Allison has snagged the lead role. Thwarting his hopes of reconciliation is the guy that Allison just started dating, Striker, a transfer student who heads a semi-famous boy band and sports a laughable European accent. Enlisting the help of his best friend's sister, Kelly (Kirsten Dunst), Berke tries to rehearse for the play and finds his emotions caught between his past with Allison and his burgeoning feelings for Kelly. Sweet and funny (especially during Martin Short's appearances as the play's name-dropping director), GET OVER IT is an excellent teen film bolstered by an exceptional cast.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Get Over It!
Kirsten Dunst (BRING IT ON), Sisqo, and Ben Foster (TV's FREAKS AND GEEKS) shine in this hilariously hip comedy! After Berke (Foster) gets dumped by Allison, the hottest girl in school, he'll do anything to get her back! Against the advice of his buddies Dennis (Sisqo) and Felix (Colin Hanks -- THAT THING YOU DO!), Berke desperately follows Allison into the high school play! But when he's inept onstage, Berke gets bailed out by his friend's little sister (Dunst) ... who just might be the one to help him get over Allison! Also featuring Martin Short (FATHER OF THE BRIDE) and Shane West (DRACULA 2000) -- nothing goes as planned in this entertaining treat!
