Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
As the sarcastic title suggests, MTV animated heroine Daria Morgendorffer regards summer vacations with a characteristically jaundiced eye; and the one chronicled in this 75-minute made-for-TV film is especially ennui-filled. Consider the activities of Daria's younger sister Quinn, for instance: the demi-Morgendorffer's summer initiative -- undertaken with her Fashion Club pals -- involves hiring a tutor who'll help them gain admission to the ultimate party school! Daria's pal Jane has a plan for self-improvement this summer, too, and joins an artist's colony, where unsolicited advances from a fellow artiste lead to comic repulsion. Daria and Jane also have a dust-up over Tom, Daria's new guy, with whom Daria had hoped to while away the summer in something approximating love. It's not meant to be, though, as Momma Morgendorffer signs Daria on as a volunteer at a camp for sensitive kids sigh!. Meanwhile, Quinn's in a swoon over her tutor, voiced by MTV's Total Request Live host Carson Daly. Also lending voice to this outing are Foo Fighter David Grohl and Amir Williams from All My Children. The DVD edition includes two bonus episodes "Fire!" and "Dye! Dye! My Darling" and Mystik Spiral's "Freakin' Friends" music video.
All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Witty, touching, and full of telling insights into the hyper-scheduled, go-go adolescence of many turn-of-the-millennium youths, this feature-length Daria outing suffers only when it tries to cram too many supporting characters and subplots into its running time. In other words, most of the scenes involving Brittany, Kevin, and Mr. DeMartino could have been left undrawn -- or at least been severely edited. Such quibbles aside, however, Is It Fall Yet? manages the twin tasks of driving home the show's overall plot arcs and introducing new thematic concerns, all the while hanging together as a stand-alone experience. Programs such as The Simpsons are content to treat their animated characters as eternally unchanging archetypes; heck, most live-action sitcoms do the same thing. But Daria and her cohorts have slowly developed over the course of the show's run, and Is It Fall Yet? gives these three-dimensional, two-dimensional adolescents even more weighty issues to chew on. Milestones abound, from first boyfriends to first inklings of maturity to first blatant seduction attempts by bisexual acquaintances. Daria's protective shell shows signs of cracking, Quinn displays heretofore unglimpsed signs of humanity, and Jane gets a rare chance to stand on her own as a character instead of serving as Daria's perpetual foil. Along the way, we also get jabs at inner children, art-school twaddle, inane Buzz Bin bands, and shifty legislators -- plus more Fashion Club venom and a hilarious new song from top Lawndale rockers Mystik Spiral. If the countless live-action dramas on the WB and UPN nailed even half as many adolescent details as Daria, maybe the Beverly Hills 90210 style of American entertainment would finally give way to something richer.

    Daria is cool.

    This movie of Daria is very funny. The part when Daria and her friend, Jane, and the rest her classmates go to the ''It's Okay To Cry Camp,'' it is very funny because Daria is suppose to take care of the little children but she makes them cry by telling them stories. The part when Mystik Spiral performs ''freakin' Friends,'' it is cool becuase everyone is going with the music in the Club. The ending was funny also when Tom kissing Daria in the car and the mom and dad are saying that is is wonderful...
