Editorial Reviews

Dave (Dylan O'Brien) is an incurable romantic in love with the hottest girl in school, Jane (Victoria Justice). Unfortunately, she only thinks of him as a friend - without benefits. Through a chance encounter, Dave meets Aubrey (Britt Robertson), an alluring girl from a nearby school, which sparks a flame that soon becomes a red-hot romance filled with all the angst, missteps & awkwardness of a first time love! Hilarious & heartwarming, The First Time is an unforgettable coming of age comedy featuring a sizzling ensemble cast.

Teen romantic comedies seem to be a dime a dozen. It doesn't seem like too many fresh stories come along anymore that aren't filled with the typical clichés. But, sometimes when you are least expecting it, and you are resisting giving another teen comedy a chance, one surprises you.

The First Time is a little gem of a film that is intelligently written and directed by Jon Kasdan. He provides us with an intriguing story with smart, every-day characters that we like. The story is about two teens who arbitrarily meet at teen drunk-fest. However, rather than being inside with all of the other kids, Dave (Dylan O'Brien) is outside in an alley practicing how he is going to share his longtime feelings with his friend Jane, who is basically worshiped by boys everywhere. Through the door comes Aubrey (Britt Robertson) who obviously isn't into the party scene but was dragged there by her friends. Suddenly, these two kids strike up a conversation. The wonderful, and frankly, best part about this movie are the conversations that are shared between Dave and Aubrey throughout the film. They discover that they have something in common, despite Dave's infatuation for Jane, and despite Aubrey's "boyfriend."

Aubrey is a girl with many ideas about life. But, like a teenager, it's all theory and no experience. This is not a slight against the character, but a realistic one, which is why the movie works so well. She is an intelligent girl who isn't thrown into ideas of wild fancy. She slights "cheesy romance" even though on some level, she likes it. She hates PDA for the same reason. She is inexperienced in the areas of romance and relationships, which obviously includes sex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan fans will love this February 8, 2013
By Carlee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The First Time is an amazing film and is a must see for all Dylan O'Brien fans.
I saw it in theaters on it's release date in New York at AMC and wasn't disappointed at all.
Britt and Dyl are both extraordinary actors and it's a great representation of a typical high school weekend which was what Jon Kasdan, the director, was going for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saw this movie at Sundance last year & it is wonderful. January 22, 2013
I saw this movie with my 16 year old son at Sundance last year and it is great. Funny and right on about teenagers and the confusion that sets in with your first love. The acting is very good.

"You dig me!"

The memorable words from filmmaker/writer/actor Jonathan Kasdan's ("Californication", "Dawson's Creek") teenage romantic comedy "The First Time".

Starring young talents Dylan O'Brien ("Teen Wolf", "High Road"), Britt Robertson ("Dan in Real Life", "Scream 4″), Victoria Justice ("Victorious", "Zoey 101″), Craig Roberts ("Submarine", "Jayne Eyre") and Lamarcus Tinker ("Glee", "Friday Night Lights", "Cougar Town"), "The First Time" would be nominated for The Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.


"The First Time" is presented in 1:85:1 anamorphic widescreen and English 5.1 Dolby Digital. Picture quality for the film is very good. Lighting is well-done and for the most part, the film looks very good on DVD. Audio is good with dialogue and music being crystal clear. I detected no major problems video or audio-wise but I do wish this film was released on Blu-ray.

Subtitles are in English, English SDH and French.


"The First time" comes with no special features.


I have watched a lot of teenage romantic comedies in my lifetime and within the last decade, there have only been a handful that I can say were very good.

Having watched "The First Time", this is probably one of the best teenage romantic comedies I have seen in the last decade!

Sure, a lot of teenage romantic comedies these days tend to have a music element tied to it. From the "Step Up" films, the "High School Musical" or many Disney features to the often banal, wealthy girl and guy from the other side of the tracks storyline.

But "The First Time" works because of its two talents, Britt Robertson and Dylan O'Brien.

4.0 out of 5 stars I dig it. So much. March 26, 2013
If you go into this expecting the usual sort of teenage fare, you're going to be disappointed. Coming at it from that angle, it's slow-paced and overly teenage-y philosophical.

On the other hand, if you go into it understanding that it's entirely a character study and, in its own way, a love letter to the John Hughes movies that captured teenage life in the 80s so well, you'll enjoy it.

The performances from Dylan O'Brien and Britt Robertson are superlative, particularly given the pool of talent they usually muddle through with, the dialogue is well done and (thank God) does not dwell overmuch in the Nicholas Sparks camp. It pulls the warm, fuzzy goggles back from the first sexual experiences while still giving you enough of a romance for a smile. I found it a refreshingly real take on this stage of this person's life--whether they experience it in their teens or the twenties. None of us really have a clue when it comes to firsts.

It's a movie I liked enough to buy, but definitely not something for everyone. Then again, it doesn't try to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a really cute movie
It's funny, quick paced, and light. It took a while for me to watch it because I'm well out of my teen years, but this wasn't the sappy sugar-coated 'Cinderella Story' crap typical... Read more
