Format: DVD
It is pleasant romantic history. It is useful for modern youth and their parents. Itself has passed from the teenager to the parent and all similar has tested.

Format: DVD
I first saw this funny and easy-going film late one night by chance. It turned out to be one of the best films I have ever seen - not because of acting, direction or star quality. Merely because it takes to back to where you were at 16-lovestruck and hopeless to do anything about it. This film evokes emotions in young men we havent felt for a long time - uncontrollable obsession towards the proverbial girl next door. A wonderful film to take you back and remember your first love who was always just too pretty for you. Ah the summer days!

A truly original teenage comedy 1 Jun. 2000
By Benjamin Scott - Published on
I was introduced to this film by a friend whose taste in movies I usually question. This one, however, did much for my respect of him.
This movie was pure hilarity, and amazingly original and the actors, as opposed to many of Hollywood's teen models, were surprisingly good. Peter (Joshua Schaefer) is in love with the beautiful and unobtainable Erica (Keri Russell). At the urging of his hilarious grandfather Nonno (Buck Kartalian) and against the wishes of his mother, father, and obscenely peurile best friend (R.D. Robb) he proceeds to wait night and day on her lawn. What follows is a coming of age adventure with so many eclectic and almost random twists that there is simply not a dull moment.
Eight Days a Week is a great movie for teenagers. It's post-graduation summer is hilarious and raunchy but manages to keep its head above the water instead of relying on shock value. It is a truly memorable teen comedy. Forget American Pie and pick up this movie.

a refreshingly honest teen comedy 29 July 2000
By Matt - Published on
I hate to bring up such manipulative teen romantic comedies as "10 things I hate about you", "She's all that", "Varsity Blues", "Down to you", "Boys and Girls", "Loser", and any other movie starring Freddie Prinze Jr that I have forgotten, but those films are under the impression that everyone in High School is a model, everyone drives around in sports cars, everyone carries a cell phone, and everyone speaks as if just out of Shakespearean times. "8 days a week", does not. Our hero is NOT beautiful, in fact, he is a genuine loser. Of course Keri Russell is beautiful, but yet she is not the everyday person, she is the object of the loser's affection. What I really liked about this movie is it's honesty in proving that nice guys do finish last. Even though it was a bit raunchy that doesn't detract from the movies charm and honesty about life and teenage love. Even though this film had only a limited theatrical release and was essentially straight to video with no big Hollywood models/actors, this proves to be the most genuinly sweet and honest teen romance out there.

Will Power 16 May 2001
By Noah - Published on
I've seen a lot of teenage movies, and this was the best. It's my new favorite movie. There are some really funny parts in this film and the whole thing is done really well. It's the best movie that nobody has seen. Sure some of the sexual references are numerous and sometimes disturbing, but it all adds to the fantastic ambiance. Jocks really are jerks, as shown, and somehow they always seem to get the girls. Kids with thick framed glasses are coming back and we want the girls, even if we have to spend months living on their front yards. This movie is just too good

Great Teen Movie 15 Nov. 2000
By Fred W. - Published on
After flipping through the channels the other day, my roommates and I came upon this movie and decided to stay there, well, due in large part to Keri Russel (and the hope that maybe.. just maybe... she didn't sign a no nudity clause). Well, she obviously did sign such a clause, but so what? The movie was excellent. It is so unlike any of those typical teenage movies where everyone looks like they are supermodel in their mid twenties. Even though Keri Russel is very visually pleasing, it was the geeks who made this movie. It reminds me of this book- Youth in Revolt- because it's just so honest. Rent it. Buy it. You'll love it.
