Boys And Girls Review


Excellent
Boys and Girls plays like a college version of When Harry Met Sally..., with just as much fun and fewer contrivances. Here, the key couple is Ryan and Jennifer, who meet by chance on a plane as pre-teens, and continually bump into one another until their lives bisect at Cal-Berkeley. Ryan, played by Flavor of the Moment Freddie Prinze Jr., is a bright, sometimes awkward engineering student who loves planning and order; Jennifer, Meet Joe Black's Claire Forlani, majors in Latin for no particular reason and aims to travel. Both wish they could apply their positive personality traits to their floundering relationships, but it just doesn't work.

The smart script for Boys and Girls, written by the humbly-credited "Drews", succeeds in part because Ryan and Jennifer nurture their unique friendship for nearly all of the film. While the inevitable Hollywood ending may be in viewers' minds from the get-go, The Drews and director Robert Iscove keep us guessing if this pair might ever connect with each other, and the sweet performances by Prinze and Forlani keep us interested.. The couple's interplay, and the machinations of their separate, frustrating lovelives, are satisfying enough that a sunshiny ending is not required.

Canadian Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Cypher) brings his perverse sense of humor and advanced ability at working with green screens to this quirky flick, a balls-out comedy with an absurd high concept: Two lovable losers (David Hewlett and Andrew Miller), through no fault of their own, find themselves about to be beseiged by IRS agents and the police (for crimes they didn't commit). In a supreme act of silliness, they wish for their troubles to stop. And so they do. Literally. Everything outside their rundown apartment vanishes. Everything! Even the ground and sky disappear, replaced by an endless sea of white in which their home strangely perches.
