on the Mandy Moore official site message board posted her review of the
'Try Seventeen' debut at the Toronto Film Festival. The fan commented,
"Faboulous! Easily one of the most original romantic comedy's I have seen
is ages, 'Try Seventeen' manages to side-step all the cheesy cliches usually
inherent in this kind of film. Great dialogue is only one of the many praises

afraid to take chances with the audience. But the story is all the more
richer for it. It never steps where you think it will, instead surprising
the viewer with some scenarios we haven't seen before."

times, someone will call me with a story and say, “Don’t use any names”

that little imp who seems to be landing on lap after lap in LaLa Land.
I hear that the bloom is off his last romance and now he’s hooked up with
one of his merry men."
