***POSSIBLE SPOILERS***

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you can get through the first 30-ish minutes of crude-ish, trite, teen-age drivel, you will find yourself immersed in a sweet, little love story. The two lead actors (Britt Robertson as Aubrey and Dylan O'Brien as Dave) were superb. Britt has a striking resemblance to and the feel of Renee Zellweger in this film and Dylan looks like my high school love. Fortunately in this movie, the guy isn't a complete jerk. The character of Dave is just what every girl wants to find and about 3% of girls find. The character of Aubrey is pretty darn unrealistic, but charming nonetheless.

I was shocked that I fell in love with this movie, but I did.

I first noticed BRIT ROBERTSON from the movie <ASK ME ANYTHING> and fell in love instantly. She is rulling the movie. Yes she was. It's not because she is super pretty or something. She just knows how to interest the audience.
I didn't know that she is already famous back then.
And then I saw the movie <THE LONGEST RIDE>. Many people loved Client Eastwood's son Scott Eastwood better because he was the main actor. But for me I only can see Brit in that movie. She was that good.
Now that I've seen this movie, It seems more clear that she's ability and ability only is the reason why all of the movie she were in is so good because of her. And a little bit of luck of course. Because obviously all the movies she were in seems very interesting.
This movie is full of all kinds of cliche. A boy and a girl about to become adults. When to loose virginity and all that stuff.
Telling the story means really nothing at all.
Through the movie two main actors are shine like stars. They had 100% chemistry.
Britt Robertson was charmming then ever. She doesn't have to be naked just like the other movie <ASK ME ANYTHING>.
Even just looking at her in the screen can kill the boys right away.
She is not as famous as other actors like ANNE HATHAWAY or JENNIFER LAWRENCE yet and I don't know she will be ever, but one thing for sure is she will have more cult fans in the future.

Oh, one thing more, I rarely watch movies because of actors. I watch movies because of directors. This one is really an exception.
