When your a teenager, the biggest social event of the year is the prom. You hope to go with the perfect date and create wonderful memories, but what if the plans you had in mind for that night were suddenly changed?
In Drive Me Crazy (1999), Nicole (Melissa Joan Hart) is the popular girl in school. When the guy she planned to go to prom with is no longer in the picture, Nicole panics. The the first guy she sees is her neighbor, Chase (Adrian Grenier), the schlubby guy next door who is not Mr. Popular in school. What starts as a charade for both turns into something more.
Let me be blunt. Drive Me Crazy is a movie for teenagers. The plot is fairly simple and predictable. While it can be grouped in age wise with other teenage romance movies from that era, it is more cookie cutter and therefore a little more boring that the rest.
Do I recommend it? If nothing else is on, yes. But otherwise, no.
And just for your viewing please, because what is a late 90’s teen romance without Britney Spears, I give you the film’s theme song.
