Mainstream hollywood teen film that sort of worked. Cliched in almost all aspects but for some reason I didn't mind. A 16 year old boy suffering from depression checks himself into a psych ward. Since this is a romcom by film's end he is all better, acquired a cute girlfriend, become wildly popular with the crazies (after 5 days!), and re-charted the course of his life.
As always the inmates in the hospital/asylum were more lovable than crazy/threatening...de rigeur if anyone is going to watch it.
Well played by the three leads which clearly helped its watchability. A pleasant diversion I'll likely forget completely in two weeks.
