    For every line of dialogue that's truly, glitteringly acid, though, there are five that are merely clever, and Lee, likable as he is, never really taps into the misery of the teen misfit.
  2. A welcome rarity: an amiable film comedy that leaves you feeling good as opposed to feeling for your wallet.
  3. Taking satiric aim at a familiar target, conformity, Australian playwright Tony McNamara's film debut is by turns incisive and broad.
  4. Reviewed by: David Stratton

    Melds an insightful observational style with some rather clunky satire and the resulting mix is uneven at best.
