A 2001 teen comedy starring Ben Foster and Kirsten Dunst. Like 10 Things I Hate About You and She's The Man, it is a loose High School adaptation of a Shakespearean play— in this case, A Midsummer Night's Dream.Berke Landers has been dating his high school sweetheart Allison for years— until the day she dumps him for the 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 American Pie-esque situations. Hilarity Ensues!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.
All Love Is Unrequited: 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.
Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: 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 Wild Teen Party 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!
Ambiguously Gay: 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."
Amusing Injuries: 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.
The Klutz: Felix tries to set Berke up with Dora Lynn, a hot girl who happens to be one in a ''big'' way.
Ms. Fanservice: Carmen Electra as a dominatrix and in a Gold Bikini in the credits.*
The Musical: 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.
My Sister Is Off Limits: Felix acts like this toward Kelly, which becomes problematic when Berke starts showing interest... Subverted in the end when Felix grows to accept it.
Off the Rails: Their version of Midsummer Night's Dream ends with Lysander and Helena getting together.
Open Minded Parent: Berke's parents are hosts on a sex talk show, much to Berke's chagrin.
Pair the Spares: At the end. Berke's friend (played by Sisqo) finally get's Kelly's best friend, and Felix nets Dora Lynn.
Wild Teen Party: 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.
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.
