Yet another teen movie

  • May 27, 2008
Rating:
+1
"Not another teen movie" is just that - another teen movie. There are about 5 actually funny parts in the entire movie and the rest is fluff. The movie tried too much and tried to parody too many movies at the same time as staying in the plot of She's All That. This movie is only good for pointing out which movie it is parodying. The cast was pretty good though and they tried to deliver a funny movie, but it just was too much thrown in the same melting pot.

The movie relies too heavily on all the movies it spoofs. If you haven't seen all of them (and I hadn't seen half) then much of the movie not only fails to be funny, it is embarrassing.

Pros: Some jokes were pretty funny; Some of the cast was good     Cons: They cut at least 30 pages from the script; potty humor is WAY too much     The Bottom Line: Horribly vulgar. Inappropriate for nearly everyone.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

Pros: Some good laughs and great spoofs.     Cons: No story and bad acting.     The Bottom Line: Some good laughs but no story at all. Still, it has some fun moments.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. During my teen years I like many in my peer group were portrayed by characters in a series of films that dealt with teen issues and lifestyles. Most of the better films were by John Hughes who in …

About this movie

Wiki

In his feature film directorial debut, Joel Gallen spoofs the ever-popular teen genre. The students of John Hughes High School live the plot lines of numerous teen flicks, including SHE'S ALL THAT, AMERICAN PIE, TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, VARSITY BLUES, and SIXTEEN CANDLES, to name just a few. The most popular boy, Jake Wyler (Chris Evans) has bet his friends that he can make Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh)--the poor, smart girl from the wrong side of the tracks--prom queen. Meanwhile, her little brother is in pursuit of the most beautiful girl he's ever seen when he's not getting into trouble with his geeky friends. Of course, a teen movie wouldn't be complete without a mean-spirited cheerleading captain, a lovestruck best friend, and a foreign exchange student, all of whom have prominent roles in the film. Throw in a few guest appearances from familiar faces from some of the best-known teen movies of the 1980s, along with remakes of songs from the same films--and even some word-for-word dialogue--and you...
