‘Try Seventeen’ Review From Mandy Moore Fan
September 17, 2002 – canadaluvsmandy on the Mandy official site message board posted her review of the ‘Try Seventeen’ debut at the Toronto Film Festival. The fan commented, “Faboulous! Easily one of the most original romantic comedy’s I have seen is ages, ‘Try Seventeen’ manages to side-step all the cheesy cliches usually inherent in this kind of film. Great dialogue is only one of the many praises I can heap upon the script. It’s witty, intelligent, original, and not afraid to take chances with the audience. But the story is all the more richer for it. It never steps where you think it will, instead surprising the viewer with some scenarios we haven’t seen before.”
