MOVIE REVIEW:Trojan War
Oh this was one of my favorite guilty pleasures! I've never been a huge
fan of teen sexy comedies like this one, but I have to admit that it
totally got my attention when it first came out.
Sure, the situations are very similar if not identical to many Hughes'
classics from the 80's but you can't help but feel the late 90's vibe.
I mean, the music, the clothing, the vibe.
The lack of the condom in the most important scene is displayed as a
problem but be honest guys, who wouldn't like to be in the exact same
situation?! Be honest!
Also, the movie displays a battle of morality but it's something I wish
would've happened to me back in the time. I mean, having a super sexy
but shy love interest, plus having the chance to bang the hottest sexy
slut of high school…
Enjoy and remember your funny moments at high school. Don't watch this
one otherwise you were a 90's pubert.
The Trojan War (1997) starts with a pretty good premise, even if it was
stolen wholesale from 1987's "Some Kind of Wonderful". Semi-geek
virgin, desperately in love with the schools unattainable beauty who
has become disillusioned with popular guy she has been dating.
Protagonist's gorgeous (anywhere but in this school) tomboyish best
friend is secretly in love with him? Cut to climatic party scene at
which all this is sorted out.
Unfortunately they stole only the premise and not the actual script (or
the cast with the exception of Marley Shelton who makes a fine "dream
girl" replacement for Hewitt), so the production falls far short of its
predecessor. It also falls far short of its 1998 successor "Can't
Hardly Wait", also featuring Jennifer Love Hewitt-this time as the
unattainable beauty. In fact the writers of that film appear to have
taken the script from "The Trojan War" and re- written it for an
audience with IQ's about 30 points higher. So my advice (unless you are
a mega JLH fan) would be to stick with the predecessor and the
successor and leave "The Trojan War" for its intended audience of
wiggers and drones. The soundtrack is much better in those two films as
"The Trojan War" was pulled from its scheduled 1997 theatrical release
because of poor projected audience numbers and filed away in the hope
that Jennifer Love Hewitt's skyrocketing popularity (insert "Can't
Hardly Wait", "Party of Five", and "I Know What You Did Last Summer"
here) would change the equation and justify the promotional expense of
releasing the movie. Even that was not enough for distributors to take
a chance on the film and after a year of deliberation it went direct to
video. And even with Hewitt's continued success in "Ghost Whisperer",
the sales projections for a DVD release of "The Trojan War" has not
excited anyone in the industry.
Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.|||
A friend of mine told me not to see this film because it was going to
be boring about the Trojan War and the story about the Trojan Horse.
Good thing I paid no attention, he probably never heard of a Trojan
Condom and it is a wonder he knew what they were used for. Anyway, this
was a very entertaining film with lots of laughs and good acting by the
entire cast. Jennifer Love Hewitt,(Leah Jones),"Garfield",’04 was very
beautiful and did everything possible to get the attention of Brad
Kimble,(Will Friedle),"Less Than Perfect",’04. Brad grew up with Leah
and liked her very much, but his big dream was to score with Brooke
Kingsley,(Marley Shelton),"Sin City",’05. Brooke was a chick that had
everything in the right places and was very hot to trot in the fast
lane for guys. Well to make a long story short, Brad Kimble went
entirely crazy thinking about Brooke and a single CONDOM. Enjoy
