Boys and Girls 2000 MOVIE REVIEW (the writer of The Virgin Suicides)

 "Boys and Girls" has to do with a young boy and a woman that satisfy when they are both about 12, and continue a love-hate connection for the next ten years, until they finally copulate each various other, with devastating outcomes. It's clear they're crazy, but after that evening of happiness, a great cool forms in between them, and she does not understand why.

I thought I did understand why. Recently on the radio, Terry Gross was interviewing Jeffrey Eugenides, the writer of The Virgin Suicides. Because unique, currently made right into a movie by Sofia Coppola, a young boy and a woman make love in the center of the football area on senior prom night--and the next early morning, when she awakes, she is alone. Journey, the boy, is the narrator, and informs us, "I suched as her a great deal. But out there on the football area, it was various." Gross carefully barbequed Eugenides about that flow. She was interested, she said, because Trip's habits was--well, not atypical of boys after sex-related conquests, and a great deal of ladies, dated and after that disposed, were interested about that terrible man pattern. Eugenides decreased to analyze Trip's habits. He'd known individuals such as Journey, he said, and he thought it was simply the kind of point Journey would certainly do.

I have a concept to discuss such post-coital disillusionment: Boys cannot deal with their dreams made flesh. They have idyllic a lady that currently ends up being real, that participates in the same habits as regular ladies, that allows herself to be despoiled (so he thinks) by his desire, which he is taught to feel guilty about. He flees in shame and self-disgust. Boys overcome this, which is fortunately, but by shedding their optimism about ladies, which is the problem.

This is an outstanding concept, but "Boys and Girls" doesn't use it. Rather, confusing the sexes, it supplies the boy with a intention for his habits that in the real life would certainly more most likely come from a woman. He cut off contact in between them, he says, because it was the best minute of his life, and he understood after that that she was his real love, and when she said it had perhaps been "an error," and that they should move on, and return to being "buddies," absolutely nothing had ever hurt him more. Of course she was simply attempting to say what she thought he wanted to listen to, because she truly loved him, but....

Their predicament is sustained by the movie convention where the personalities say the incorrect points and don't say the right points, and remain frustrated by a circumstance lengthy after it has become clear to us. But after that Ryan and Jennifer (for those are their names) are not fast studies, anyhow. It takes them ten years and countless Satisfy Cutes before they finally damage down and have their first kiss. They specialize because form of sex most infuriating for the target market, coitus postponus.

They're both awfully nice individuals. They're played by Freddie Prinze Jr. and Claire Forlani as great and wonderful and honest and delicate, and we such as them a great deal. We also such as his buddy (Jason Biggs) and hers (Amanda Detmer). Perky Heather Donahue, survivor of the Blair Witch, obtains great screen time as Prinze's interim sweetheart. They are so adorable that we earnestly wish they had mature and develop more fascinating and complex characters. We are advised of the concept that American culture prolongs teenage years much past its all-natural life-span. If these personalities were French and participating in the same discussion and habits, we would certainly guess their age at about 13.

I was amused by their university majors. He is examining architectural design, as we can see in scenes that inevitably show him examining balsa-wood models of bridges with a astonished expression. After his junior year, the models don't break down any longer, so he must be learning something. She studies Latin. Why? "Because I plan to do post-graduate operate in Italy." In the Vatican City, I hope.

"Boys and Girls" is soothing and safe, mild and interminable. It has to do with 2 individuals that might as well fall crazy, since destiny and the plot have provided them absolutely nothing else to do and no one else to do it with. Compared with the knowledge and wickedness of "High Integrity," this is such a small movie. It is not that I do not such as it. It is that I do not care.
