Why it doesn't suck: because it's too cute to suck, it's just how you remember your first 'love' as a preteen. Even though it's a fairly recent movie (2010), it feels like a 'classic' from your youth, partially because it was directed and written my the man himself, Rob Reiner.

Why it doesn't suck: well for one it spawned two more movies, (before sunset, before midnight) every 10 years which is awesome. It takes an unrealistic idea of love at first sight, and somehow makes it seems plausible.
