HASH(0x8d1b53c0) out of 5 stars Tepid and honest and dull and involving 31 Dec. 2011
By Larry VanDeSande - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Myth of the American Sleepover is a teen-themed but adult interest directo to video film about a group of suburban Detroit kids on the last day of summer vacation, before they either go off to high school or college. The events in this film take place in people's yards, at a lake, in their homes and at the University of Michigan.

There isn't a lot going on in this movie other than the stuff kids do in the summer. They attend parties, try to impress each other, try to find that romantic interest or generate same from a member of the opposite sex (no obviously gay interest that I saw) and have varying levels of angst, disappointment, excitement and fun trying to figure out themselves and other kids/young adults. The sleepover theme comes from a group of girls that sleep over at one of the girl's parents' house, where the movie's only real conflict arises.

But this is not a film about particularly conflicted people; it is a slice of life film without message or principal theme other than to say what goes on in the film is sometimes dull, sometime involving, and always honest -- or real life, you might say. This is among the more honest teen-interest films I can recall seeing, now or ever. There is not a thread of pretension in this movie. People in the movie do what people do in real life.

One example is a fellow that came home from college in Chicago, who has a younger sister in the sleepover, who sets off to pursue a pair of twins he knew from high school. When he finds them, at University of Michigan during a pre-enrollment freshman orientation, he can't tell them the truth about why he sought them. They pester him until he tells them of his interest, and the events in this interlude are probably close to reality for most people. There is a naivete that influences almost every character in this exceptionally honest film.

I liked this movie a lot and will no doubt watch it again on either DVD or dish. I don't find many teen films that I can sit through, much less enjoy. Typically, they are either silly, idiotic, too sexual or cliche-ridden. There is none of that in this movie. This is one of the most sincerely honest teen movies I've ever seen.

HASH(0x8d1b5468) out of 5 stars Know what you're getting 10 Dec. 2012
By Kevin Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film will play better to former teens than current ones. The cast is populated with inexperienced actors (some of whom are more effective than others), and the filmmakers are more interested in showing a small slice of summer than taking you on a more traditional narrative journey.

Before watching, put yourself in the mindset of American Graffiti or Dazed & Confused: this is an ensemble story where nothing "big" happens, and many of the characters end up in the same place - literally and figuratively - where they started.

If you want plot twists and prom scenes and epiphanies, look elsewhere.
HASH(0x8d755e94) out of 5 stars Suburban American teens 17 May 2014
By Ron Baker - Published on Amazon.com
The rituals American teens which are somewhat tribal at times. Girls chasing boys and boys chasing girls. By the end of the night hardly any of them end up with who they thought they, or we, would. The interactions between the teens during a night of multiple sleepovers and parties is fun.

All I can say is that I enjoyed this movie. The characters all felt real as opposed to actors just following scripted prompts. It just felt organic and real, and I appreciated the experience I had watching this movie for the first time.
HASH(0x8d68c624) out of 5 stars Better Teen Movie 29 Aug. 2014
By JOHN B QUANTZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The teenagers depicted in this film seem more realistic than those usually portrayed in teen films. It was not easy to guess the ending of several of the "relationships". This film is better than most of its kind. Recommended.
