Get Over It [VHS]
Top Customer Reviews
Then the movie becomes interesting... as Berke (Ben Foster), leaves his ex-girlfriend's, Allison (Melissa Sagemiller), front lawn, the music of "Love Will Keep Us Together" plays and Vitamin C comes out of the garage with her band singing to the tune following Berke down the street. Pretty soon we see people joining in from a newly wed couple, to the UPS delivery woman, to two garbage men doing cartwheels, and more dancing to the tune of "Love Will Keep Us Together". It's really hilarious. To top it off, a marching band joins in and it can't get any funnier than that. From that moment on, I knew this movie was going to be a winner. It was funny all throughout the movie with Martin Short playing Dr. Desmond Forrest Oates, a flamboyant drama/music teacher, to two of Berke's best friends Dennis (Sisqo) and Felix (Colin Hanks), to Bentley "Striker" Lawrence (Shane West), a Backstreet Boys wan-na-be, who becomes Allison's new main squeeze, to his eccentric liberal parents. Then you have Kelly (Kirsten Dunst) helping Berke out in a Shakespeare play, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", in which she is also a part of, as a scheme to get Allison back. The movie evolves around the Shakespeare play and in it has funny moments and amusing musical numbers excluding "Dream Of Me" which I thought wasn't funny at all but a beautiful song sang by Kirsen Dunst. The movie also has cameo appearances by Carmen Electra and Coolio. The movie was great, but the end made it even more special.Read more ›
Berke just can't let go of her despite the pleading of his two best friends Felix (Colin Hanks) and Dennis (Sisqo). To complicate matters even further, Allison falls for a popular boy band singer (think NSYNC), who just happens to go to their high school. Ordinary Berke just doesn't have a chance against the British accented pop sensation, but it doesn't stop him from trying anyway -- usually with some hilarious and I-feel-your-pain embarrassing moments.
With the help from Felix's younger sister, Kelly (Kirstin Dunst), Berke hatches a plan to win back the love of his life by going head-to-head with Allison's new love in the school play. Kelly ends up falling for Berke, who is too concerned with Allison to even take notice. And so the story goes and you'll just have to watch it to see how it turns out.
Colin Hanks is hilarious with his wise cracks and over-protectiveness of his sister -- especially with lines like "Hey man! Hands off the sister!" Unlike "Crazy/Beautiful" Kirstin Dunst, we get to see the cute and charming Kirstin Dunst we saw in "Bring It On". I'm not a Sisqo fan, but he does a great job in this movie and might turn out to be an okay actor.
All in all, I liked this movie alot. It is definitely a movie I could watch over and over again.
Deciding the best way to win back Allison would be to audition for the school production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, Berke lands a major role, pitting him against Allison's new beau, a wannbe boy band member. What ensues is an all out war to win the heart of Allison, but as opening night approaches, Berke wonders if this is really what he wants or does his heart may belong to another?
'Get Over It' is a funny film, that keeps the laughs coming without getting silly, and features some fine performances by all it's actors, with most of the laughs being supplied by Martin Short in the role of the play's eccentric producer. The only flaw in the film is the time spent on the play, if the play was used as a backround, instead of a main setting, the movie would have been great.

I watched this movie years ago and I loved it. I think the idea of modernizing Shakespeare is always good as long as the story doesn't stray to far from what was originally... Read morePublished on June 11, 2014 by Amazon Customer
