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!
Meanwhile, Berke and his friends find themselves in many ''Film/AmericanPie''-esque situations. HilarityEnsues!
While hardly the best of the teen-Shakespeare movies of the 2000s, ''Get Over It'' has an odd charm to it, due in part to its wacky and sometimes surreal humour (rather fitting, considering the source material). Arguably the best part is "A Midsummer Night's Rockin' Eve", the rock musical version of ''AMSND'' they dreamt up for the movie.
!!This movie provides examples of:
* AlmostKiss: Kelly and Berke, before her MomentKiller brother phones.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Well, it is based off ''A Midsummer Night's Dream''... Kelly loves Berke, Berke loves Allison, Allison loves Striker, Striker is dating Allison but cheats on her, attempting it once with Kelly... yeah.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: How Berke sees his parents. They force him to talk about his break-up ''on live television'', they respond to his arrest in a strip club by ''offering to take him out for frozen yoghurt'' (then offering to take him home and let him masturbate) and they ''only'' reason they get mad about the WildTeenParty he (technically, Felix) throws later on is because had they known, ''they could've paid for a DJ''. Berke finally snaps at them after that last one, but they don't seem to notice.
-->'''Berke:''' You're my parents for god's sake, STOP TRUSTING ME!
* AmbiguouslyGay: Dr. Oates, the drama teacher, who is very flamboyant and loves musical theatre.
** Also Peter Wong, the school's resident theatre geek who at one point refers to Doctor Forest-Oates as his "special friend."
* AmusingInjuries: Dora Lynn's entire character, not to mention an incident where Striker throws nun-chuks and hits a woman in the crotch. Later in the movie, Kelly accidentally shoots Berke with a crossbow.
* AndStarring: Martin Short
* BikiniBar: In order to get a PG-13 rating, the strip club is less explicit than originally intended, resulting in this.
* BlackBestFriend: Allison's best friend Maggie, played by Zoe Saldana in one of her earliest roles.
* BoyBand: Striker was a member of one called "The Swingtown Lads"
* CannotSpitItOut: Dennis to Basin
* CatapultNightmare: Berke after the opening credits.
* CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds: Berke's friend Dennis and Kelly's friend Basin hook up, as do Felix and Dora Lynn.
* ConvenientSlowDance: Inverted when the generic moderate-tempo background music gets turned up to high-tempo music the second a character asks another to dance.
* DancePartyEnding: See SuddenMusicalEnding.
* DuetBonding: The way Berke and Kelly get close
* ElaborateUniversityHigh: The school grounds are absurdly nice, including a pool with apparent stadium seating.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Steve really doesn't like being called "Little Steve," but his halfhearted complaints fail to dissuade anyone.
* FakeBrit: Baton Rouge native Shane West as Striker.
* FollowTheLeader: It's clear they were channeling ''Film/AmericanPie'' with certain jokes (the horny dog, the strip club scene, Felix's entire character), and of course there's the "Shakespeare HighSchoolAU" thing
* GirlNextDoor: Kelly
* GroinAttack: A female version courtesy of Striker's accidentally thrown nunchucks.
-->'''Dr. Oates:''' Keep icing your front-bum!
* HighSchoolSweethearts: Berke and Allison were said to be "the quintessential high school couple", and Berke wants to get back together.
* HotForTeacher: Peter Wong for Dr. Oates, apparently.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Kelly waves a crossbow around in front of Berke, believing it to be a prop, and it goes off and shoots him in the arm.
* ImagineSpot: All of Berke's dream sequences, plus one with Dr. Oates where he conducts to hobos.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Allison is remarkably accepting of [[spoiler: Berke getting together with Kelly.]]
* TheKlutz: Felix tries to set Berke up with Dora Lynn, a hot girl who happens to be one in a [[WalkingDisasterArea ''big'']] way.
* MsFanservice: Carmen Electra as a dominatrix and in a Gold Bikini in the credits.*
* TheMusical: Dr. Desmond Oates, the drama teacher, wrote a rock-musical adaptation of ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'', which includes such classics as "Fun to be a Fairy" and "Pocketful of Dreams." And is ''hilarious''.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Felix acts like this toward Kelly, which becomes problematic when Berke starts showing interest... Subverted in the end when Felix grows to accept it.
* OffTheRails: Their version of ''Midsummer Night's Dream'' ends with [[spoiler:Lysander and Helena getting together]].
* OpenMindedParent: Berke's parents are hosts on a sex talk show, much to Berke's chagrin.
* PairTheSpares: At the end. Berke's friend (played by Sisqo) finally get's Kelly's best friend, and Felix nets Dora Lynn.
* SchoolPlay: Obviously the climax of the film.
* SerenadeYourLover: Perhaps as a parody/homage to ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'', Berke does this to Allison with the song "[[Music/ElvisCostello Allison]]"... after they broke up. And he's drunk.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Allison at the start of the movie (consider she and Berke used to [[PlayingDoctor "play doctor"]])
* ShowWithinAShow: The play, naturally.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Dr. Oates again, who claims to have nearly composed a song with Diana Ross (what he means is she stepped on his cassette as she walked past a media frenzy).
* SmallReferencePools: Pretty well everyone who went to an English-speaking school has read the original play. (If you haven't, no, we don't care.)
* SoundtrackDissonance: The opening credits sequence begins right after Allison dumps Berke and features an elaborately [[SpontaneousChoreography choreographed]] song and dance rendition of... ''Love Will Keep Us Together''.
* SpontaneousChoreography: See above.
* SuddenMusicalEnding: Sure, the movie is about a stage musical, but the big song and dance at the end take place after the show's over.
* StylisticSuck: Certain parts of the school play - particularly Helena's original "love song".
* UnrequitedLoveSwitcheroo: Berke spends most of the movie pining after Allison, but it's only as he becomes attracted to Kelly that she tries to get back together with him. [[spoiler:It doesn't work.]]
* VomitIndiscretionShot: One of the guests at the WildTeenParty pukes in the punch bowl.
* WalkingDisasterArea: Terrible things just seem to happen around Dora Lynn... at one point resulting in her falling into a coma for five years.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Striker pulls out a pair of nunchucks to intimidate Berke, leading him to shout, "Who keeps nunchucks in their pants?!"
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: InUniverse, Striker's accent is described as "sounding like Madonna."
* WildTeenParty: Felix organizes one... at Berke's house... without Berke's knowledge... though one of the key aspects is averted: While Berke's parents walk in, they aren't mad he had a party, they're upset they didn't know or they would've sprung for a DJ.
* YourOtherLeft: Unsurprisingly, stage directions can get confusing.
-->'''Dr. Desmond Forest Oates:''' What direction do you think "left" is? See, because if you go with your instinct and reverse it, I think we have something happening. How difficult is this? I'm so alone, I think.
