Coming Soon is a 1999 American romantic comedy film directed by Colette Burson and written by Burson and Kate Robin. Starring Bonnie Root, Gaby Hoffmann, Tricia Vessey and Ryan Reynolds, it has been described as a female-centric American Pie.


Three wealthy, savvy high school seniors, Stream Hodsell, a smart, down-to-earth strawberry blonde, sassy Jenny Simon, who masks her intelligence behind a guise of fishnet stockings, and soulful Nell Kellner attend the prestigious and expensive Halton School in Manhattan and have everything - brains, beauty, money, popularity, powerful parents and boyfriends like Chad and garage band musician Henry Lipschitz. They have it all but are still unfulfilled. After losing her virginity without obtaining sexual satisfaction, Stream is confused as well as unfulfilled and studies the problem with self-help books, women's magazines and the comically misinformed advice of her peers. Judy Hodsell is Stream's distracted ex-hippie mom, Dick Hodsell is her yuppie father with a new young girlfriend, Mimi, and Mr. Jennings is a feel-good career counselor.
