Get Over It

Jonathan Yu's 25th movie of the year

Allison (Melissa Sagemiller) breaks up with boyfriend Berke (Ben Foster), and suddenly his best friend's younger sister (Kirsten Dunst) doesn't seem so young anymore. I was at this movie's premiere and boy, is Sisqó short. Anyway, despite being utterly predictable, Get Over It is actually quite entertaining for a teen movie. The incredibly good-looking cast plays it smart amidst a story revolving around a high school rock 'n' roll production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, gleefully spoofing TRL culture and school musicals, thanks in large part to the creative recordwork of Marc Shaiman, who also co-machinated the South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut soundtrack. Besides, any movie that can make me laugh at Martin Short deserves major SWASS points. • B
