This hip little coming-of-age comedy marks the feature debuts of gifted director Richard Wong and actor-screenwriter-songwriter H.P. Mendoza. Set in dreary Colma, California (“home of cemeteries and car dealerships”), it follows three teenagers fresh out of high school—gay Rodel (Mendoza), straight Billy (Jake Moreno), and Maribel (L.A. Renigen), the gal pal both boys take for granted—as they slouch toward adulthood and face the dissolution of their tight unit. Packed with catchy pop melodies, humorously deadpan lyrics, and imaginative musical staging, the movie combines quirky irony with insights into adolescent angst. 119 min.
