This movie is complete fluff, and while I love Seth Green, Breckin Meyer, and Donald Faison as members of "Du Jour", Tara Reid's portrayal of Melody is just too idiotic to stomach, Rachael Leigh Cook is not what I would have pictured in terms of Josie, after spending years reading the comic, and Paulo Costanzo isn't what I would have imagined for Alexander Cabot. They wrote him all wrong, casted the movie all wrong. Alan M. is supposed to be hot, the hottest guy in Riverdale, and yet, the guy they chose falls FAR short of that mark!
It's a shame too, because Deborah Kaplan is behind one of my favourite teen flicks ("Can't Hardly Wait"), but she sure didn't even come close to doing this story justice. It would have been better left in comic/cartoon form than having this tragedy made. The music, however, is more tolerable, most of the time, than every other element of this movie.
