Burstein captures a high school experience that lies somewhere between the MTV reality series LAGUNA BEACH and the John Hughes films of the 1980s. In fact, THE BREAKFAST CLUB is a logical jumping off point for the film's marketing campaign, and the theatrical poster smartly mimics the classic teen comedy. But AMERICAN TEEN succeeds on its own merits, thanks largely to plenty of hilarious moments and its universal, engaging subject matter. Though the film places each of the five central characters neatly into a category--geek, jock, rebel, heartthrob, and princess--each person seems entirely real. And even though their daily dramas--getting into their dream school, trying to find a prom date, and breaking up--might seem to matter less in hindsight, these are the real issues that teens face, and it's hard not to become a little nostalgic...or be very glad that those turbulent years are in the past.
