Drive Me Crazy is a highschool romcom from 1999, answering to troperiffic traditions of the genre in The '90s. It is named after the Britney Spears song by the same name, which is featured in the film's soundtrack. Melissa Joan Hart is Nicole, a popular Extracurricular Enthusiast Genki Girl. She used to be friends with Chase, the Troubled, but Cute boy next door, portrayed by Adrian Grenier. She and her Alpha Bitch best friend Alicia are in with the in crowd and she is avidly planning the Centennial party for their school. The Cynic that she is, she plans on most-popular-guy ever, Jerk Jock Brad, to take her to that party, even though they are not dating and he has apparently fallen in love with a ditzy Pom-Pom Girl. Afraid of the humiliation of going stag to her own in-universe crowning Moment of Awesome, she asks Chase to go with her. As Chase was recently dumped by his Soap Box Sadie girlfriend, Dulcie, he obliges and crosses highscool social dividers into Nicole's posse, going from Cool Loser to the new it guy, to the dismay of his friends.
