Editorial Reviews

TEENAGE DIRTBAG tells the story of a popular high school cheerleader (Noa Hegesh) who is harassed by a delinquent classmate (Scott Michael Foster) until they are both placed in the same creative writing class. Through written words, they develop a strong bond of trust, companionship and love; but sadly not a bond that can withstand her elitist social pressures or his brutal home life. This film is based on a true story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive despite it all January 24, 2011
Format:DVD
I came across this movie on a whim, I had no expectations about it. I found it entertianing and suprizingly addictive. There were a lot of things borderline amateurish and undefined about the movie. But despite all the things I could try to say against this movie. The movie makers must have done something right because I still like it enough that I plan to buy it. It aggervates me but at the same time I have watched it about four times within a week. I can't tell you why I keep coming back to it, but I do, and I still react to it everytime. It hasn't gotten boring yet, the parts that were shocking, gross, and sad; the first time around still get to me now. Its by no means a block buster hit, but it has the potential to be a perfect cult movie like The Breakfast Club.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Movie October 30, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie blew me away. It was full of twists and it was really dramatic. I'd say the romance part of the movie is unrequited. The poetry was stunning along with the actors. Scott was amazing. The movie sort of has you on the edge the entire time. It got slow in the middle, but the ending had to be my favorite part. Great film. *****

4.0 out of 5 stars poignant May 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Just got done watching this movie and I am kind of reeling from the potency. I feel like I might need to watch it again to fully appreciate it. But, here's my initial reaction: the two leads are phenomenal - couldn't have had better actors in those roles, the music pulls at you, the story is intriguing and the poetry is pretty beautiful. The theme song, if there is one, I have a feeling is by Sigur Ros, a Swedish band, that creates beautiful, haunting music. That's how I would describe this movie in a nutshell. It is a beautiful, sad and haunting story of a couple of kids - who didn't quite know what to do with a strong and powerful connection. I'd recommend this movie to anyone that has a thoughtful mind and is intrigued by the human experience. You are definitely left thinking and wondering, not only about how it ends, but what it's like to experience that kind of random, heart-wrenching chemistry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good indie movie August 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this movie on cable and after watching it 2 times I decided to purchase it for my home collection. I love indie films and this was a really great one. Scott Michael Foster the lead actor is not only extremely talented but so adorable in this role. He really makes you want to love him and makes you want to shake his love interest and say "can't you see how wonderful this person is". I especially love the way he protects his sister. He dosen't care about how others perceive him and that is his best quality. He is just this broken boy with a dysfunstional and crazy home life who wants to be loved. It really teaches you to not judge others and even though we come from different sides of the track it is possible to build relationships with someone who is not like us IF you allow yourself to. It's a story of love and regret and it really makes you think.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheerleaders aren't all dumb December 12, 2009
Format:DVD
For the Scott Michael Foster fans, you will absolutely adore this film. I think there is a group of fans that love him, and will love anything he does. This is your movie, rent it, or buy it, immediately. Please, don't read the rest of my review.

This is an odd low budget, independent film, by first time writer, producer, director, Regina Crosby. The film appears to be mostly autobiographical as revealed in the DVD bonus features. A cheerleader, that isn't stupid, is inspired to write incredible poetry by a creative writing teacher. She develops a deep emotional relationship with a bully boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He torments her in the hallways, in study hall, and in her creative writing class. The film takes place in a tiny town, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. You'll notice that I didn't use any character names, because it's very difficult to tell what is really Regina Crosby and what is fictional in the film.

There is ambiguity in the film. If you don't mind a few spoilers, there are several discussions in other Amazon reviews about what really happened at the end of the film. There's a lexicon that Ms. Crosby set up, present day is supposed to be in kind of blown out, muted colors and gray; flashback to the happy times between Amber and Thayer is lit brightly and clear; and bad times in Thayer's house is dirty and smoky. The timeline in the film is turned around with what look like long ago flashbacks, and what looks like present day, and what looks like year ago flashbacks (three time threads flowing in the film). That lexicon should give solid clues to where you are in the timeline; otherwise a viewer will get completely lost watching the film. Sadly, the cues were too subtle, the timeline too jumbled, to really make sense of what is happening when.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 21, 2013
By shimona
Format:DVD
I have watched this movie so many times that I might need to check into a movie watcher's rehab. I just happened to come across this movie one day by chance and fell in love with it. This movie will actually touch your heart.
Scott Michael Foster played the character of Thayer so brilliantly. My heart ached for this character. It really makes you stop and think about people around you who are exhibiting the same behavior and makes you wonder if they are crying out for help. This movie gives a perfect example of the saying, "never judge a book by it's cover."
Plus, the soundtrack to this movie is awesome. I was searching for the songs and the artists on the internet when I finished watching the movie. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone.
