Orange County (2002)

Orange County (2002, USA) C-82m. ** D: Jake Kasdan. Starring Colin Hanks, Kyle Howard, R.J. Knoll, Bret Harrison, Schuyler Fisk, Mike White, Jack Black, Lily Tomlin, Chevy Chase, John Lithgow, Garry Marshall, Kevin Kline, Ben Stiller, Harold Ramis. Quirky, amusing comedy about teenager Hanks (Tom's son), who feels stuck in his native Orange County, especially when he is rejected by the University of Stanford - by a mistake. However, he pursues his plans to become a writer consequently. Pretty shapeless in the first half, improves towards the end. Good to see a cool and hip teen movie that is not about getting laid. Cute Fisk, as Hanks girlfriend, is Sissy Spacek's daughter.
