Berke runs into a childhood friend in the cafeteria of his high school and they hit it off. He thinks they’ll last forever but, after a while, she breaks it off. Despite his friends pressuring him to let go and get over it, Berke takes his own route – one that requires him to do anything possible to get her back. When the opportunity to join a play with her arises, he seeks aid in getting good enough for the part.

The first thing I’m going to do is swallow the knowledge that Shakespeare is rolling over in his grave. This isn’t the worst thing that’s ever happened to his work (which is saying something).

That being said, “Get Over It” not only failed to impress, but it seriously made me reconsider some of the movies I have on my list. Where it wasn’t a complete waste of time (there were a few laugh-worthy moments), it was still pretty bad and not something I can see myself watching again in the future. The methods the director used to portray things was inconsistent and almost kind of confusing, I find Martin Short to be unbearably annoying and the storyline was a bad recipe that was like watching someone butcher a chicken.

I’ll admit, when the movie was over I was left with a more content feeling than I thought I would be. It’s strange, actually. I hated the movie while watching, but almost have a pleasant memory of it. Still, I feel like I’m being generous with my overall opinion.

Netflix’s Prediction for Me – 3.3/5
Overall Opinion – 2/5
