I hold this movie close to my heart.
The sheer mix of comdey, wit and drama is on sync with what it should be.
The casting for this movie is absolutely A+, ESPECIALLY Marilyn Manson as Christina. Also memorable performances by Seth Green and Macaulay Culkin (of course). It also struck me as hilarious that Wilmer Valderrama did Keoki's role.
Personally the book is more in depth and entertaining, but over all the film was very accurate to the events that actually occurred in real life.
I also love the fact that they used the actual costumes that James St. James and Michael wore back in the 90's.
One small factor is that I feel like this movie is a tad bit too long. You get the point at an early age of the film (they do drugs, they like to be obscene and party), causing the rest of the film to be repetitive and feeling longer than what it really is.
Overall I love this film because not only does it entertain with a ridiculous story and characters but it also tell a painfully true life story of something that did actually happen. Especially being it's a story not too many people know about being that it was short lived. Also the costumes and fashion are so fabulous, it's hard to look away.
