This Review is Definitely One of These (Ed.)
No, we haven't lost our minds. "crazy/beautiful"
may not be Merchant Ivory material, but it isn't your average teen
drama. This is a truly thoughtful and non-condescending vision of
youth problems. Kirsten Dunst shines and gives an unforgettable
performance as a troubled, unloved rich girl, and Jay Hernandez
is genuine, bright and charming as the Hispanic poor boy who falls
for Dunst. The story stretches convention and examines issues with
intelligence and wit. Sadly, this is a Disney production and the
issues are softened, but for Dunst fans, yup she's hot!
2001 99 mins.
