Editorial Reviews

A love story about two imperfect teenagers who find perfect love. The film follows the story of two teenagers from different worlds--Mark Deloach and Dori Lawrence--as their lives quickly spiral out of control. The rebellious but privileged Mark delves into dangerous antics resulting in a nearly fatal drunk driving accident, and Dori Lawrence, a wild actress and singer slowly loses touch with reality as she suffers from schizophrenia. Forced to straighten out their lives, Mark is sent to join the Marines and Dori is admitted into a mental hospital. In the midst of life's chaos, Mark and Dori are drawn to each other, recognizing their mutual desperation for love and understanding. Despite pressure from both their friends and family to keep their distance, they maintain their bond. While they fail to fix what's broken in each of their lives, they find comfort in each other's faults and have faith that their unconditional love will eventually heal their deep seeded wounds.

4.0 out of 5 stars IRRESISTABLE GEM! June 28, 2005
For Film going pleasure STATESIDE is a poignant much underated labour of love. A low-budget, high-production story of comedy, drama, fun & adventure, love & loss between two characters from very different crossrooads whom make it through an interesting set of life circumstances that never quite seem outright predicatable as in other hollywood fodder.

Military cruelty & Mental-haeth issues are a major recurring theme throughout between characters Mark(Jonathan Tucker) who lands in the Marine Corps & Dori(Rachael Leigh Cook) a former actress/band-singer with schizophrenia. The 2 leads are perfect casting and playout an unusual yet believable romantic relationship when apart or together after long periods of seperation. Production standards by First Look Pictures & Writer/Director/Producer: Reverage Anselmo is "Superb", excellently supported by noteworthy Cast: Agnes Bruckner, Carrie Fisher, Joe Mantegna, Ed Begley,Jnr & Val Kilmer.

Watch out for a hystericaly funny uncredited guest-cameo by Penny Marshall as a loopy Hospital Nurse nearing films end,priceless!

All in all a contemporary love-story to warm the heart and humor enough tom ake you laugh. NOTE: Addresses the serious issues of Mental-Illness better than GIRL INTERUPTED.

Bonus: Movie Premiere Party

5.0 out of 5 stars Very under rated January 2, 2006
By Tina
First I want to say how I can see how people may not like this movie. But to an any kind of movie lover you will give it a chance and like it. I really enjoy it. I cannot wait for it to come on Showtime lately.

I want to say in regards to a review listed earlier about Sue being put in a mental institute for hating her Mom and writing smutty lettters. She was commited because she is a sex addict, watching the film during the therapy sessions you will hear Sue talk about how she wanted to do this guy and how she thought about him and so on.

I never got the impression Dory was in LA. I assumed and got from it that she was in the NYC area doing her work. I might be wrong on that by cannot say for sure.

I like the love story, it is diffrent and different is good nowadays. We need things changed up a bit. My hubby is a Marine so I might be bias here. But the thing I like about the Corps in it, is that it is not showing in depth of the Corps or over indulging it like other films do. My husband thinks it is a little quirky but he knows I like it.

Go to Showtime and catch it there right now. Either way I'm buying a copy here soon. I have a huge DVD collection and think it is worth the cost to have in anyone's collection. It is like a good old black and white love story for me to watch.

Did not care for her being Schitzo but what can you do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Unconventional love story August 30, 2005
This movie is an underrated gem. If you're into unique and intriguing love stories, you'll certaintly love "Stateside". Both, Rachel Leigh Cook and Jonathan Tucker, who play the lead parts, are extremely talented, yet endearing young actors and this film just proves that. The story is highly engaging and thought-provoking. Definitely one of the best movies I've seen lately. A must-see one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Diamond in the Rough!!! March 11, 2006
I loved this Movie ..I connected on some level to the Love of my life in my younger days and I could feel the wonderful vunerability of being in Love at such a irresponsible age ,when nothing was of consequence except your feelings for that person and her feelings for you ...nobody else mattered ...Life was so simple then complications ...and then we Grow up(Mature) and we are told what we should look for in a Lifetime partner !!!..But these two Beautiful individuals in this movie make we believe that I was not wrong in how I felt twenty years ago ..and maybe there is still hope that I find my True love and feel the Passion all over again ...

all the cast give superb performances...Enjoy ..

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet tale May 4, 2013
A story is of a schizophrenic girl catching a prince-American-way.

As cars and NYC looked like, it happens somewhere in the seventies last century, and a military environment depicted simply grotesque.

Easy watching.

2.0 out of 5 stars Troubling. October 18, 2005
By Alexiel
I wanted to like this movie. Really I did. I came into watching it with the mindset of "This looks like it'll be good." Unfortunately, I was wrong.

"Stateside" is set in the early 80s, although there are points where it looks like the 50s. It is about a teenager named Mark, a member of a very rich family, who attends a Catholic school and seems to be something of a slacker. To me, the early part of this movie wasn't very well delineated - I didn't get a good feel for Mark's character at the beginning of the movie. He and his friend find out one of their friends/one of the guys' brothers (I think) has sex nightly with somebody in the class, a girl named Sue. Sue is bright and fiery and makes fun of Mark in class. So of course what is the logical course of action? Why of course Mark and his friend drive out to where Sue and other other guy make out every night. They knock the guy down, kidnap Sue, and drive away in their car very fast. If this doesn't make sense to you, don't worry, it doesn't make sense to me either. They get in a car wreck that paralyzes the head priest of Mark's Catholic school. In lieu of jail time, Mark has to join the Marines. Sue's mother (played hilariously by Carrie Fisher) finds smutty notes Sue has written to her boyfriend and reads them to Sue while she is in the hospital. Sue doesn't like her mother's scorn, so she runs out the door screaming. I can't say I blame her.

However, then we see Sue has been dumped in a mental institution. Apparently having sex with a boy and then not liking your mother sneering as she reads your private note to him is grounds for being committed. So be it. That strikes me as something more likely to happen in the 1930s, not the 1980s, but okay.
