Here on Earth is a 2000 romantic drama film that follows the lives of three young individuals who end up in a love triangle. The movie stars Chris Klein as Kel, Leelee Sobieski as Samantha, and Josh Hartnett as Jasper. The film explores themes of love, friendship, and the importance of cherishing every moment of life. The story begins with three high school students, Kel, Samantha, and Jasper, who come from very different backgrounds and are brought together by fate. Kel is the son of a wealthy businessman, much like his father, he is arrogant and self-centered. Samantha, on the other hand, is a spiritual person who loves nature and art. Jasper is a rebellious troublemaker who has been expelled from several schools.

Their lives intersect when Jasper accidentally sets fire to the local diner, and as punishment, he is ordered to work there to pay off the damages. Kel and Samantha are also forced to work at the diner during their summer break. Despite their initial animosity towards each other, they gradually start to get to know each other better.

As Kel and Samantha spend more time together, they begin to fall in love. However, their relationship is complicated by Jasper, who also has feelings for Samantha. As the summer progresses, the love triangle intensifies, and the three friends are faced with some tough decisions.

Throughout the movie, the characters learn valuable life lessons, particularly the importance of appreciating every moment. Samantha's love for art serves as a metaphor for this concept as she talks about how beautiful moments in life are fleeting and can never be regained once they're gone. This theme is reinforced by the fact that Samantha has an incurable disease and only has a limited amount of time left to live.

The cinematography in Here on Earth is breathtaking, with stunning shots of the countryside and small town life. The soundtrack is also a highlight, with songs by top artists such as Savage Garden, Sheryl Crow, and Dido.

Chris Klein, Leelee Sobieski, and Josh Hartnett deliver standout performances, bringing depth and emotion to their characters. Their chemistry is palpable on screen, and as a result, the love triangle storyline feels authentic and not contrived. Supporting actors such as Michael Rooker and Annette O’Toole also deliver notable performances.

Overall, Here on Earth is a heartwarming movie that teaches us to appreciate every moment of life and the people we love. The love triangle storyline is well-executed and doesn't feel cliché. The cinematography and soundtrack elevate the film to another level, making it a visually stunning and emotionally captivating experience.

Here on Earth is a 2000 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2 and a MetaScore of 25.
