Editorial Reviews

TEENAGE DIRTBAG tells the story of a popular high school cheerleader (Noa Hegesh) who is harassed by a delinquent classmate (Scott Michael Foster) until they are both placed in the same creative writing class. Through written words, they develop a strong bond of trust, companionship and love; but sadly not a bond that can withstand her elitist social pressures or his brutal home life. This film is based on a true story.

I came across this movie on a whim, I had no expectations about it. I found it entertianing and suprizingly addictive. There were a lot of things borderline amateurish and undefined about the movie. But despite all the things I could try to say against this movie. The movie makers must have done something right because I still like it enough that I plan to buy it. It aggervates me but at the same time I have watched it about four times within a week. I can't tell you why I keep coming back to it, but I do, and I still react to it everytime. It hasn't gotten boring yet, the parts that were shocking, gross, and sad; the first time around still get to me now. Its by no means a block buster hit, but it has the potential to be a perfect cult movie like The Breakfast Club.

I first saw this movie on cable and after watching it 2 times I decided to purchase it for my home collection. I love indie films and this was a really great one. Scott Michael Foster the lead actor is not only extremely talented but so adorable in this role. He really makes you want to love him and makes you want to shake his love interest and say "can't you see how wonderful this person is". I especially love the way he protects his sister. He dosen't care about how others perceive him and that is his best quality. He is just this broken boy with a dysfunstional and crazy home life who wants to be loved. It really teaches you to not judge others and even though we come from different sides of the track it is possible to build relationships with someone who is not like us IF you allow yourself to. It's a story of love and regret and it really makes you think.

I have watched this movie so many times that I might need to check into a movie watcher's rehab. I just happened to come across this movie one day by chance and fell in love with it. This movie will actually touch your heart.
Scott Michael Foster played the character of Thayer so brilliantly. My heart ached for this character. It really makes you stop and think about people around you who are exhibiting the same behavior and makes you wonder if they are crying out for help. This movie gives a perfect example of the saying, "never judge a book by it's cover."
Plus, the soundtrack to this movie is awesome. I was searching for the songs and the artists on the internet when I finished watching the movie. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone.

Just got done watching this movie and I am kind of reeling from the potency. I feel like I might need to watch it again to fully appreciate it. But, here's my initial reaction: the two leads are phenomenal - couldn't have had better actors in those roles, the music pulls at you, the story is intriguing and the poetry is pretty beautiful. The theme song, if there is one, I have a feeling is by Sigur Ros, a Swedish band, that creates beautiful, haunting music. That's how I would describe this movie in a nutshell. It is a beautiful, sad and haunting story of a couple of kids - who didn't quite know what to do with a strong and powerful connection. I'd recommend this movie to anyone that has a thoughtful mind and is intrigued by the human experience. You are definitely left thinking and wondering, not only about how it ends, but what it's like to experience that kind of random, heart-wrenching chemistry.

This movie blew me away. It was full of twists and it was really dramatic. I'd say the romance part of the movie is unrequited. The poetry was stunning along with the actors. Scott was amazing. The movie sort of has you on the edge the entire time. It got slow in the middle, but the ending had to be my favorite part. Great film. *****

I was intrigued when I saw the trailer for Teenage Dirtbag, but I did expect to see the film enact a lot of angsty high school romance cliches. The plot, which follows how the original disdain between a popular cheerleader and a notorious "problem kid" turns into (grudging, and entirely socially unacceptable) attraction, can superficially sound like the plot of hundreds of other movies. So I was floored when the film unfolded to be among the most original and sublime I've seen.

Bonus commentary from the director and producer notes that the film's rapid shooting (it was all shot in about 20 days) resulted in a few continuity errors. These ultimately prove to be noticeable, but extremely forgivable. The production value is nothing to write home about, on its own; director Regina Crosby, also a supporting actress in the film, apparently kept it on a "shoestring budget" to avoid having to compromise with financer's influences. But the more down-to-earth feel of the film proves to be a boon that highlights the graceful acting and editing of this movie. The two leads act their complex characters especially beautifully. But really: I think the way Scott M. Foster portrayed the troubled Thayer, complemented so intensely by the unyielding Amber, will haunt me for a very long time. Perhaps even longer than that wonderful yet frustratingly enigmatic ending.

A truly gripping film that captures the hopes, frustrations, despair, and confusion that can confound the lives of high school aged students in America. It also demonstrates the impact both abuse and neglect can have on an entire family. While some might be quick to dismiss the reality put on display by the filmmaker as being contrived, I might caution against such judgments as there is much to be learned from such a cautionary tale. Today's abused and neglected child will inevitably grow into tomorrow's emotionally bankrupt adult, incapable of making healthy choices for themselves or others...
