I loved everything about this movie. It was very funny, I laughed out loud (which I rarely do watching a movie). It had a deep and touching story and I really cared about the characters (which I always hope for in a movie, but rarely get). There was a lot of character development because the characters grew and changed (for the better).
I loved the gay character of Clarke, he was sweet and deep and touching and adorable and I really felt for him (and the actor who played him did an amazing job, I do not think that anyone could have done better).
I also loved the character of Danielle, she starts out as a "dirty girl," but as the movie progresses, I understood why she was that way (she desperately wanted love and attention which she was not getting anywhere and so she was acting out) and it was wonderful to see her change through her friendship with Clarke (which was what she really needed, just someone to feel close to without sex), and after she was so hurt (by realizing that her dream father was not reality) she let her real self come through.
This movie made me smile, laugh, cry, it kept moving and held my attention, and the ending was so sweet and amazing, so this movie had everything that I love in a movie, and I actually cannot even think of anything negative to say about it. I also loved that this movie was set in the 80s, which is my favorite decade, I loved all of the 80s references, especially the music, which made me love this movie even more.
I totally recommend this movie.
It should have a different title, because the title is very misleading, and I almost didn't watch the movie just because the title threw me off.
I would have named it, "Misunderstood Danielle."
