A 2001 teen comedy starring Creator/BenFoster and Creator/KirstenDunst. Like ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'' and ''Film/ShesTheMan'', it is a loose HighSchool adaptation of a Shakespearean play-- in this case, ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream''.

Berke Landers has been dating his high school sweetheart Allison for years-- until the day she dumps him for the [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent vaguely-British]] ex-boy band member Striker. Allison and Striker sign up for the upcoming school play, a musical adaptation of ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'', and in an attempt to win back his beloved, Berke does too. Unlike Allison and Striker, Berke has no acting, singing, or dancing talent, and so enlists the help of his best-friend's little sister, Kelly, to teach him the ways of drama. As his rivalry with Striker grows, Berke finds himself growing closer to Kelly... and to add to his troubles, one of the leads breaks his leg, landing Berke with a leading role!
