    Actress Kirstin Dunst has, for a long time, proven that she's a talent to watch. Yet, the movies that she's been in haven't always proven to be the greatest viewing experiences.
    For every "Bring It On" and "The Virgin Suicides" there's a "Get Over It". "crazy/beautiful", although a mostly superb picture, was overlooked at the theaters earlier this Summer, suffering from an especially bad marketing campaign.
    "Get Over It" is slightly above the usual teen comedy fare. It's cliched and unoriginal (with some tasteless jokes thrown in due to studio insistance, according to the commentary), but has some inspired moments such as a musical credits sequence.
    For a movie that grossed $12 million at the box office, the movie has received an suprisingly packed special edition. Presented in a nearly flawless 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen edition and unexpectedly lively Dolby Digital 5.1.
    Supplements include an entertaining and informative commentary from director Tommy O'Haver and writer R. Lee Fleming, Jr, 8 deleted scenes, full audio versions of some of the songs included (and deleted audio of songs not included), 7 minutes of Martin Short improvising and riffing, Martin Short make-up test, two music videos and several "sneak peek" trailers (all of which are in 5.1 audio).
    If you're a fan of Dunst, you might want to check it out as a rental - although it's only a supporting performance from her this time, she is definitely one of the few highlights of the film. And for those who saw it and liked it, the DVD will definitely not dissapoint.
    "Get Over It" is released today.

    I absolutely LOVED this movie, and am on my way to pick it up right now! It really should have done better in the theaters, but I'm guessing most people didn't get the weird production design or the Burt Bacharach references.
