What did you think of this movie?! I tend to judge movies now using the techniques you taught us in 370, (The I'm Not There System), and I loved it. An entertaining, rewarding night at the theatre. It was good to see a movie break free from the rigid "high school, summer before college, and college comedy" genre. The writing was terrific. Finally, a movie where a character is old enough to grab a drink after work but still has difficulties finding a private place to make out with his girlfriend.

Oh, I totally agree. It managed to meet the requirements of the genre without getting defined by it. And the soundtrack was used very, very well. I love your point about how it's not an end-of-high-school story. The opening scene sets you up to think it will be, which reinforces the point.
