Synopsis

Daria: Is It Fall Yet?
MTV's favorite disaffected teen stumbles through her first romance, suffers through an awful summer job, and pines away for witty banter with her absent and estranged best friend in this feature-length entry in the animated series Daria. It's the summer before Daria Morgendorffer's senior year at Lawndale High, and her best friend, Jane Lane, is heading off to the Ashfield Artists' Colony for the summer. Jane withholds this piece of information until the last possible moment, presumably in retaliation for the relationship that has developed between her ex-boyfriend, Tom, and Daria. Unable to deal with her feelings for Tom and the rift they've caused between her and Jane, Daria blows the boy off, nearly sabotaging her nascent dating career. Daria's mother, however, refuses to let the girl spend the summer moping. Daria soon finds herself manning the OK to Cry Corral, a day camp where one of her teachers, Mr. O'Neill, bores and oppresses the children with his sensitive new age ways. Meanwhile, supporting players Kevin, Brittany, Jodie, and Mack suffer through employment horrors of their own. As for Daria's shallow younger sister, Quinn, she ignores the dictates of the Fashion Club and enlists the help of a tutor to get her test scores up and prove she's not stupid; along the way, she learns a little bit about depth and maturity. Jane, too, decides to act her age after Daria arrives for a weekend visit at Ashfield -- just in time to save Jane from the manipulative poseurs who surround her. Is It Fall Yet? premiered nearly commercial-free on MTV on August 27, 2000, serving as a bridge between the show's fourth and fifth seasons. MTV host Carson Daly and musicians Dave Grohl and Bif Naked provided guest voices, Daly in the role of Quinn's tutor. A second movie, Is It College Yet? followed in January 2002, putting an end to Daria's five-year run. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi
