  1. It's all way too heavy-handed, though nicely acted by Hirsch, Culkin, and, especially, Jena Malone.

    The British music-video director Peter Care (making his feature debut) and screenwriters Jeff Stockwell and Michael Petroni have retained much of the wry, teen-wise dialogue from the late Chris Fuhrman's cult-hit novel, while giving his story arc a fuller, more rounded shape.

    Like watching somebody else's flashback and wondering what you were doing then instead.
