The movie centers on each of the characters' summer activities ranging from Quinn getting a tutor for the summer, Daria being forced into volunteering for a lame summer camp and Jane taking a two month stint at an artist's colony.
Even if you're not familiar with the characters, you'll be rolling at all the jokes and dry wit that Daria and Jane spout. What makes the movie a step up from the series is that several of the characters start to grow, especially Quinn. With a little help from her tutor she finds that she doesn't have to be as shallow or dumb as her fashion club friends. Some of the minor characters don't end up doing that much (Mack, Brittany and Kevin, for example). But I defy you to try not to laugh hysterically when Mr. DeMartino snaps, pulls the sink from out of the wall and throws it through the window after all of the campers are cooped up inside.
As a little bonus on the video, there's a music video for Mystik Spiral's "Frickin Friends". I only wish I could have seen the DVD to see what other extras there might have been.
"Daria: Is It Fall Yet?" is an excellent movie packed with great wit, humor and characters. Do yourself a favor and give it a look. You won't be disappointed.
"Is It Fall Yet?" Originally aired on August 27th 2000. I haven't been able to get the DVD yet, but I taped the show when it was aired commercial free. Jane's ex-boyfriend, Tom just started to date Daria, and junior year ended in a... um... bang, I guess. Jane was accepted to stay at an art colony over the summer and Quinn's PSAT scores were low, forcing her to get a tutor. The thing I love is that "Is It Fall Yet?" evaluates each and every character so well in the short time (75 Min.) that it has. It'll still keep you laughing every time you see it.
I recommend that all Daria fans should pick it up as son as you find a copy. I know I will when I see it.
