Overview

Ben Foster stars in this teenage comedy as Berke Landers, an average high schooler who has achieved high status by winning over Allison (Melissa Sagemiller), reputed to be the most popular and beautiful girl in his class. After an initially winning time, Allison finds herself drawn to the hot new guy in school, leaving Berke in the lurch. At the risk of ruining his unsteady reputation, Berke concocts a scheme for getting Allison back: he will join the school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and prove his romanticism to her. Realizing he needs an effective acting coach, he turns to Kelly (Kirsten Dunst), who was once the annoying little sister of a best friend and has suddenly blossomed into a grownup -- to whom Berke finds himself drawn. Berke must then decide if getting Allison back is the ultimate priority, as he falls for the more sensible Kelly, all while trying to maintain a credible presence both in school and in his new acting gig. Get Over It also features R&B singer Sisqo, comedian Martin Short, and Shane West in supporting roles.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
This teen comedy features frothy Kirsten Dunst, star of the superlative Bring It On, but its by-the-books bawdiness and jokey attitude grace a less distinctive script and ensemble than the earlier film. Dunst is sweet and empathetic as romantic lead Kelly, but the story actually centers on the boy-loses-girl misadventures of Ben Foster's likable but generic Berke. In addition to the aforementioned Bring It On, the script also borrows elements from American Pie (big surprise) and She's All That (also scripted by R. Lee Fleming Jr.). The result is a compendium of gross-out and teen romance genre clichés that are watchable enough without making much of an impression. Tommy O'Haver, director of Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss, brings lots of knowing camp to the scenes of Berke trying to win back his girlfriend by becoming a drama nerd. Swoosie Kurtz and Ed Begley Jr., meanwhile, actually make funnier too-permissive parents than Eugene Levy did in Pie and its sequel. But Martin Short way overplays a way underwritten riff on the frustrated artiste-drama-teacher archetype; just add Waiting for Guffman to the long list of films from which Get Over It tries, with lukewarm results, to borrow from.
