5.0 out of 5 stars You won't, 28 May 2004
This review is from: Get Over It [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
I have to admit that i fell in love with this film when i first saw it, even though teen movies that are this predictable sometimes make me gag. You will, laugh you will cry, you will watch it over and over, you have to believe me, it has a little bit of something for everyone, and , though i realise they are trying a little too hard, they pass it off by making it seem so predictable it strays away from ordinary (ordinary films try to avoid predictability but succeed only in straying away from the story...this does both). You don't have to see it, i'm sure you can survive without it, but trust me, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Second Season ..., 28 May 2004
I gave this DVD five stars. I would have given it five stars had the season contained only 4 episodes as i am an extreme Dawson's Creek fanatic. However, this wasn't necessary, as the quality of the DVD matches the quality of the series. Or, at least, it met my standards, for those of you who are watching on widescreen, with surround sound etc. I suggest that you see other reviews for more details, for those of us who only really want to be entertained, the only thing that i can criticise about the DVD is that some of the music has been altered from the way the episodes were broadcast, sue to licensing or copyright issues, i think.
For the unfortunate ones out there who having seen Dawson's Creek before, this second season follows the four leads from the first season; Joey, Dawson, Pacey, and Jen, and there families and friends. It also addds two new characters; Jack and Andie. To summarise the plot of the first season for newcomers: Dawson and Joey have been best friends since they were little, but Joey long since realised she loved him, then sophistacted Jen came into town, and swept Dawson off his feet leaving Joey feeling like second-fiddle. By adding slightly sex-obsessed Pacey, ex-NewYorker Jen, hyperverbal Andy, and shy-yet-deep-yet-sexy-yet(?) Jack, and all their baggage the show quickly becomes must-see television. I won't give away how the old season ends, because that gives away the start of the new season, but you should be able to pick it up. Highlights of the season include, in my eyes, Paceys moments in the final episode, when Jack finally gets into the limelight close to the middle of the season, with a story bound to impress (which, for those who have heard what happens, is done full justice by both the actors and the shows producers/creators etc.), Abbys bitchiness throughout the season, Dawson and Andies singing,and the conflict and resolution of 'The All Nighter', this is, without a doubt, the most complex, enthralling, entertaining, lighthearted, touching and thoroughly Dawson's Creek season of the entire series.
