This movie was pure hilarity, and amazingly original and the actors, as opposed to many of Hollywood's teen models, were surprisingly good. Peter (Joshua Schaefer) is in love with the beautiful and unobtainable Erica (Keri Russell). At the urging of his hilarious grandfather Nonno (Buck Kartalian) and against the wishes of his mother, father, and obscenely peurile best friend (R.D. Robb) he proceeds to wait night and day on her lawn. What follows is a coming of age adventure with so many eclectic and almost random twists that there is simply not a dull moment.
Eight Days a Week is a great movie for teenagers. It's post-graduation summer is hilarious and raunchy but manages to keep its head above the water instead of relying on shock value. It is a truly memorable teen comedy. Forget American Pie and pick up this movie.
To my surprise, this movie turned out to be a decent little teen-romantic-comedy. The acting is solid, there were some genuinely funny moments, the main character who camps out on Keri's lawn reminded me sometimes of Woody Allen as a teenager and Ms. Russell was extremely beautiful and sweet. (On the completely shallow and superficial front, Keri Russell doesn't actually do any nudity, though she comes frustratingly close at numerous occasions.)
The basic plot involves Peter (Joshua Schaefer), a nerdy teen who has a huge crush on the gorgeous Erica (Keri Russell) who lives across the street. He tries to get her attention but she's wrapped up in a relationship with a stereotypical jock. Peter than decides after getting advice from his Grandfather to camp out on her lawn (all day and night) and not leaving until she lets him profess his admiration for her and hopefully starts going out with him.
That's essentially the whole plot. There are various characters that weave in and out of the movie.Read more ›

Great movie. A must see and I'm glad I can go back and watch it again. Of course, I should have waited for the DVD, but then what would happen to our economy without impulse... Read morePublished 23 months ago by Chesapeake, VA
