A young man wins and loses the first serious love of his life. Al Connelly falls in love with the girl of his dreams. After the summer she breaks up with him. As he tries to recover Al goes to desperate measures.
Freddie Prinze Jr.,
The lives of three young people - a rich student, a girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" and her boyfriend - unexpectedly intersect during one fateful summer in the romantic drama "Here on Earth." Kelley Morse (Chris Klein), who is cocky and brash, normally would never have crossed paths with the residents of a small town near his posh private school. But when he takes his shiny new Mercedes out for a drive, he locks horns with some of the locals, including Jasper (Josh Hartnett). As Jasper's willful girlfriend Samantha (Leelee Sobieski) looks on, Kelley and Jasper engage in a dangerous car race that turns disastrous, leaving a popular diner owned by Samantha's mother in ruins.

Chris Klein, Josh Hartnett and Leelee Sobieski star in"Here On Earth," a movie that had promise in the beginning but ran out of gas.
Despite the talent of these three young stars, "Here On Earth" falls apart at the seams because there really is no sense of direction as to where the movie should go. Not only is this movie cliché, but there really is no way for the audience to feel anything because it just isn't there until its too late.
This movie is a snoozer and didn't take me long to realize this was the case. After all, I had to ask myself who wanted to watch a movie about a girl who is trapped between two men, it has been done to perfection in better movies.
I was sorely disappointed at the outcome but in retrospect I'm glad I didn't see in the movie theater.
