Get Over It has one of the most inventive title sequences for years: glum Berke (Ben Foster), dumped by his girlfriend, walks down the street oblivious to the singers, brass band and cheerleaders who are performing the title song behind him. Unfortunately the rest of the film does not live up to it's opening promise, but along the way writer R Lee Fleming Jr and director Tommy O'Haver create a pleasant enough adolescent, romantic comedy with some fine gags.

An accident-prone date's demolition of a sushi restaurant is a splendidly engineered piece of slapstick and Berke's permissive parents (Swoozy Kurz and Ed Begley Jr), who work as sex education experts, offer scene-stealing performances. Berke's pursuit of "his" Alison leads him into the school play--a musical version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Kirsten Dunst plays the sweet-natured girl waiting for him to see sense, and manages to makes something charming out of a rather dull part. Martin Short overdoes things as the show's writer/director.

On the DVD: Get Over It is presented on disc in widescreen 2.35:1 and with Dolby Digital 5.0 sound, which does full justice to the musical numbers at the film's climax. It comes with an extended outtakes sequence--including many different versions of Martin Short's scenes, some deleted scenes and alternate takes and cast bios. --Roz Kaveney
