Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Ben Savage (Boy Meets World), Johnny Lewis (The O.C.), Justin Mentell (Boston Legal) and Aaron Ashmore (Smallville) are hometown buddies in hilarious pursuit of some action on their last night of college break. With Tom Arnold as an offbeat school bus driver and mentor, the guys turn their quiet suburban town upside down as they throw caution to the wind, try to hook up with some hotties and kick some butt in this coming-of-age adventure. What happens, they never could have predicted. What they learn will change their lives forever.

2.0 out of 5 stars the location was the best part March 4, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Palo Alto is a cool place to visit. Old money abounds, so things tend to be nice. This story could have taken place anywhere. Boys want girls, get girls, learn something before the night is over. Perhaps there were a couple of more meaningful epiphanies, but how can we be sure with a story that covers these characters for a mere 12 hours?

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Sincere November 24, 2008
I saw an early cut of this film and was presently surprised with its sincerity. What begins as a rather typical night-in-the-life of some sex obsessed teens, quickly turns into an oftentimes touching exploration of all aspects of love. You have the innocent crush, the ravenous lust, unrequited adoration, and even cross-generational friendship.
By the end of the film I was hoping it would keep going. A definite find for the independently-minded film viewer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roap Trip of Self-Discovery February 28, 2009
"Palo Alto, CA" focuses on four college freshmen (Ben Savage, Johnny Lewis, Justin Mentell, Aaron Ashmore) who bite off more than they can chew when they come home for Thanksgiving break. Tom Arnold is on board as a school bus driver and mentor. What begins as a typical horny guys/coming-of-age flick turns out to be much more. Each of the initially shallow characters develops in depth as their individual stories unfold. The movie is many things: buddy film, comedy, romance, and drama. The screenplay by Tony Vallone is clever and touching, taking pains to make the four guys real folks rather than mere deliverers of wisecracking repartee. The picture's modest budget and lack of name stars gives it the look and feel of an indie, and also adds credibility to the story. The film proves that a comedy featuring young men need not take the low road of obvious yucks and tired, overused situations to milk laughs. The humor here derives from how the guys react to unexpected circumstances, growing up a bit along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars All's well that ends well January 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen a pre-release screening of Palo Alto. Films with endings that have a twist to them are among my favorites. Well, Palo Alto has four twisty endings. So it's really a good value! And it's a swell film too...

5.0 out of 5 stars Viewed at Tribeca Film Festival January 3, 2009
Had a chance to see this film at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. As an adult walking into what I thought would be a film strictly for students, I was very surprised. This Indie film, and I view a lot, engaged me from the the opening sequence. This film was written, produced and directed by college students. Very impressive. I can't wait to see their next film.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a much under rated movie! May 30, 2011
By J. Tram
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I do not normally give reviews, especially for movies. This movie has it all drama, comedy, romance, and much more! I do not believe this is for all movie watchers as this is a slow movie to watch. This movie cover the lives of 4 best friends from their point of view. It is like Crash the movie but, in a less controversial way. Just for FYI, If you do not have prime or prefer Netflix, this movie is also on instant stream on Netflix. I am not going to go into details as I do not want t spoil the movie for some. But as a response to that person who gave it a 2 star, yes it could have been taken anywhere but, so can all the movies that are being filled today...You also have to remind yourself that this is an low budget indie film.
