Some may view the struggles of adolescence with fond memory, as a timeof innocence and a stepping stone to becoming an adult, others may seeit as a collection of petty first world squabbles that we all mustjoylessly march through to enter the crushing world of adulthood.However you view it, the fact is we all must, or have underwent itstrails, in our way…

The Myth of the American sleepover tries to (and in my humble opinionsucceeds rather well) in conveying this fact and gives us a sometimesstartling accurate insight into how we used to think, behave and whatwe used to aspire too. Told in an episodic fashion with no real maincharacter or plot, the movie instead focuses on characters, allteenagers, during one night, specifically the last night of summervacation and set in that most barren of wastelands, the white Americansuburbs as they try to fulfil their desire before summers end.

Being that there is no set story or plot the movie ops instead for aseries of episodic tales or parables if you will, each one involving acharacter searching for something, typically that which all adolescentssearch for… love, excitement, friendship, or even just to end thesummer with a bang. Its all very nicely handled with the stories beingloosely connected to one another and switching back and forth in arelatively seamless manner so that you are never confused as to whatsgoing on or whose doing what. This is further helped by the slow paceof the movie which ensures that everything flows slowly but smoothly,almost like a dream. Indeed the noted sparsity of dialogue and thecinematography does give the whole movie a dreamlike effect as eachcharacter searches for that which they desire before the sun inevitablyrises and the dream ends.

However this slow pace and lack of any complicated plot may be a turnoff to some people and i would be lying by omission if i didn't saythat a heavy tolerance to "whimsy" is needed to appreciate or eventolerate this movie, and while some be put off by the very "indie"feel, with people talking about their emotions while looking at thestars etc i would however encourage these people to look a littleharder because if so they will find that this movie actually handlesteenagers very realistically, all least compared to some supposed"indie teenager emotion movies" like Garden State for example. Atcertain points the movie achieves the highest praise one can bestowupon a film, being that you forget your watching actors in a movie andnot real people just being filmed.

Indeed the acting in this movie was really quite excellent given theage of the actors, director David Robert Mitchell really manages tocapture the awkwardness and conflicting desires that plague those lostin the void between childhood and adulthood. But best of all he managesto capture this without crossing that line and becoming too whimsicalor indie. Your not for example, as so many of these types of moviesmake you, rolling your eyes in disgust or throwing up at the cheesy,right on the nose, "emotionial" dialogue. Instead its all subdued andtastefully done, and as long as you give it chance then you can reallyenjoy it or what it is.

On the flip side of that however, the subdued and quiet pace of themovie, while one of its many strengths is also its greatest weakness,the movie lacks enough of a punch or "oomph" if you will, while a nicewatch its not terribly memorable, which is a shame because it has somegood actors and was all handled rather well. But in the end its notenough to make it stay with you or to stand out as unique creation.

So overall i couldn't recommend this to anyone whose looking for actionor comedy or zany antics because id be a great big liar. However Iwould recommend it to anyone who wants to take a walk down memory laneand relive those glorious or torturous years, and remember a time whenthe biggest worry you had was if the girl at the supermarket noticedyou or not, or when a social gathering meant sleepovers at your friendshouse and every beer was a little can of illegal debauchery and summerwas your kingdom and you its sovereign ruler.

I call this a "modern John Hughes" movie because, just like the JohnHughes films of the 80's, they tell stories of teenagers that can hithome with many people. This film tackles some of the not only moremodern issues with teenagers, but the deeper issues. I think where itmisses its mark is with some of the characters themselves. The storysurrounding them may be interesting, but the characters...not so much.For example, I thought the "twins" story line was interesting, but theguy who played the character which this plot surrounds wasn't verylikable (perhaps due to his terrible haircut). I think a better castingcould have improved this film. The movie looks at teenage life througha slightly nostalgic point of view, but I think it benefits from this.It also shows high school from different points of view, such as afreshman, a senior, or even someone who has already graduated from highschool. This film had potential and some good moments, but overalldidn't quite hit the mark.

I really did want to like it. It was all shot here in the Detroit area,but it doesn't feel like it -- it has more of a generic, anywhere feel,and that's okay.

My biggest issue with it is that the script rings totally false. Theseare young people anywhere from high school sophomores (thus, about 15)to about-to-be second-year college students (thus about 19) -- and theyall behave like 11-year-olds. Are we really to believe that people thisage get all put-offish over mere kissing?! What world does thewriter/director inhabit? This opened the same week as the fine film"Terri," and that movie just crushes this one. Here, the editing is tooloose, the acting is average at best across the board, and by the 20thtime some guy announces "I want to kiss you" or the like, you're justso bored with it all.

A "freshman sleepover" in the University of Michigan gymnasium? Withold women "chaperones" guarding/falling asleep at the door? May be, butI sure can't imagine it.
