Editorial Reviews

Yes, there's something about Keri. Keri Russell (Felicity, Mission: Impossible III) is the object of a likable dweeb's romantic obsession in the cheerfully raunchy comedy Eight Days a Week. Russell plays Erica, a hormone-revving girl-next-door who tells nerd's nerd Peter (Josh Schaefer) they're "just friends." But Peter has grander designs. Perhaps he can win her attention by paying constant attention. So Peter camps out beneath Erica's balcony. All day, all night, he witnesses the passing parade of neighborhood events that is nuttier than he is. And perhaps this Romeo's time is near.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly original teenage comedy May 31, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars a refreshingly honest teen comedy July 29, 2000
By Matt
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will Power May 16, 2001
By Noah
Format:VHS Tape
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Teen Movie November 15, 2000
By Fred W.
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious August 29, 2006
Format:DVD
I watched the middle to end of this movie on Comedy Central and after never seeing the start of it I knew I had to buy it. I must say I love it, it's so raw and probably more accurate about being a teenager and that last summer before you leave. I love how this movie wasn't afraid to say anything. That's refreshing.

I caught this movie on late night cable one weekend. I was suffering from a prolonged allergy attack that had knocked me on my @$$ and made me wish that someone would put me out of my misery. Usually, when I'm sick like this, I'll watch stuff on T.V. that I normally would pass on since my mind is somewhere else. While flipping through the movie channels I saw that a movie starring the extremely cute Keri Russell (best known as T.V.'s Felicity) called Eight Days a Week was coming on, that it was Rated-R and contained strong sexual content. Curious to see what Ms. Russell looked like minus most of her clothes (though she doesn't go all the way), I proceeded to watch the film expecting a disaster/guilty pleasure.

To my surprise, this movie turned out to be a decent little teen-romantic-comedy. The acting is solid, there were some genuinely funny moments, the main character who camps out on Keri's lawn reminded me sometimes of Woody Allen as a teenager and Ms. Russell was extremely beautiful and sweet. (On the completely shallow and superficial front, Keri Russell doesn't actually do any nudity, though she comes frustratingly close at numerous occasions.)

The basic plot involves Peter (Joshua Schaefer), a nerdy teen who has a huge crush on the gorgeous Erica (Keri Russell) who lives across the street. He tries to get her attention but she's wrapped up in a relationship with a stereotypical jock. Peter than decides after getting advice from his Grandfather to camp out on her lawn (all day and night) and not leaving until she lets him profess his admiration for her and hopefully starts going out with him.

That's essentially the whole plot. There are various characters that weave in and out of the movie.
