Light Teen Fare
on December 10, 2015
In the interest of full disclosure, I had the biggest crush ever on Melissa Joan Hart when I was twelve years old in 1999 and this movie came out during the period in question when she could do no wrong in my eyes. Sixteen years later, I wanted to see if it still held its lofty position. It doesn’t. Drive Me Crazy is not a horrible movie, but it ultimately is what it is: light fare for the teenage crowd. I did like that they had the popular kids and the I guess we would call them geeks or nerds and they sort of had this series of interactions that laid bare how so many people must’ve felt during high school.
Bottom line is that this movie is no five star classic and could easily bore anyone in the audience over thirty, but if you fall in the intended demographic for this movie or have nothing to do for ninety minutes, then there are worse things to do with your life then watching Drive Me Crazy.
