| Slightly over the top and cliche but somehow still really good.
The film has a very simple style and indie art-house feel with the 4:3 frame and 16mm film look. I thought they were overdoing it with the 90's references through t-shirts and posters but it starts to feel more genuine as the movie goes on, and as someone in their mid 30's who skated, I was definitely feeling nostalgic.

The acting and dialogue immediately feels off because ...they aren't actors. BUT it's not in a bad way.. it's hard to describe. You get use to it and it's actually quite effective. There is definitely chemistry and for the most part the performances feel authentic.

It's hard to tell a coming of age story without cliches and mid90's certainly goes there and takes things pretty far in the name of make a directorial debut splash.

The character 4th Grader who is the white guy who just hangs with the skaters and films everything, seems to be based on Harmony Korine (apart from him being poor) as homage to the obvious influence of 'Kids'

Overall, it's a good movie and a fantastic first flick for Jonah Hill.
