Fresh: The most exhilarating American movie I have seen this year -- which isn't saying much.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Friday, April 27, 2007
Fresh: The film succeeds on the astonishing merits of its leading lady and her superior supporting cast.
- Eleonore Snow, Mr. Showbiz, Saturday, January 1, 2000
David Arquette brings some funny moments to this film but overall it?s not great!

Ugh. Really? This was made in 1999? You could have told me that this was John Hughes' afterbirth ripped from the early 80s and I would have believed you. This is basically the cinematic equivalent of a glacier, floating backwards into some sort of moronic rom-com whirlpool. Drew Barrymore gives it her best shot, but even her noblest efforts basically amount to piss in a hole. This is the type of triteness so complete that, even within the world of the film, triteness is what is considered acceptable; see the rapturous response to Barrymore's laughably bad newspaper article at the end of the film. The film makes it sound like she deserves a fucking Pulitzer for her *scathing examination* of bitchy high schoolers and not getting kissed by her pedophile pretend teacher. I cannot think of a single newspaper that wouldn't laugh that shit straight out of the copy room. Also no way in fuck would someone as hot as Leelee Sobieski be a social outcast. At absolute worst, she'd be the nerdy girl that all the nerdy guys pass around and who gets a really sordid reputation. UGH. Why do I even care anymore.
