Editorial Reviews

This comedy looks through the eyes of a handful of teenagers who make their way through the last day of high school in the last year of the past millennium and provides a glimpse into the teenage wasteland of 1999 suburbia. The film follows several students as they relish the advent of summer vacation and struggle with drugs, sex and the unpredictability of the future before them.

"Remember the Daze" is a 2007 direct-to-DVD release whose main claim to fame is an ensemble of the hottest young actresses ever assembled (at least in recent memory). For viewers looking for that sort of thing it starts with then unknowns Leighton Meester and Amber Heard; and doesn't really go downhill much from there with Marnette Patterson, etc.

This is one of those 24-hour important transitional day teen movies, which are produced every few years and key in on a day that marks the passing from one stage of life to another. In this case it is 1999 high school graduation party night (in North Carolina) as the seniors prepare to move on to life after high school. Think "Can't Hardly Wait" (1998), "Dazed and Confused" (1993), and "American Graffiti" (1973). Throw in some elements and cast members from "Sleepover" (2004) along with the lyrical qualities of "Empire Records" (1995) and maybe even a little of "Sixteen Candles" (1984).

The only thing really unique about "Remember the Daze" is that Jess Manafort (the writer and director) is a relatively young woman. So the point-of-view is more female oriented; and the parts of the female characters are better written and much more believable that those of the males. Intuitively you would think that this would give the film a box office advantage over its predecessors. The many hot babes and some comedy, drug use, and misbehaving should attract a teen boy target audience and the more cerebral and sensitive dialogue should connect with girls of almost any demographic.

Unfortunately the wheels mostly fall off and the film fails to make the sentimental connection Manafort was hoping to achieve.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT!! June 6, 2008
I love this movie!! I've been waiting since I think 2006 to see this movie and I'm not disappointed!!The acting in this movie leads to very believable storylines and I think teenagers everywhere can relate to at least one of these characters, and recognize something that they or someone they know personally went through!

Jess Manafort did an amazing job directing this movie and I cannot wait to see more of her work...All the actors did an amazing job as well!
