I believe that perhaps a lot of the criticisms of this film come from90's-00 teens because THEY JUST DON'T GET IT! Most of the comedy inthis film spoofs 1980's movies, with a few current barbs thrown in frommore recent films. I am an 80's child, and I laughed so hard duringthis movie! I saw it with younger kids from the mid-to-late 90's, andthey didn't get half of the jokes. The school cafeteria is named "TheAnthony Michael Dining Hall." The school is "John Hughes High School."There are send-ups of "Risky Business," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off,""Pretty In Pink," "Sixteen Candles," and an absolutely priceless scenethat spoofs "The Breakfast Club," along with the original "BreakfastClub" principal, Richard Vernon, spouting almost exactly the samedialogue. Sure, there are much more recent films that are skewered,such as "Varsity Blues," (which was HORRIBLE) and "She's All That,"(Which was EVEN WORSE.) There's an hilarious running gag spoofing"Cruel Intentions," in which the slutty sister will stop at nothing tobed her brother, high school football hero Jake Wyler, who makes a betwith his team members that he can turn plain-jain, boy-hating JanieGriggs into the prom queen. Sex jokes and excrement jokes run rampant,all hilarious. Jamie Pressly, who you might remember from JerrySpringer's movie "Ringmaster," is a total riot as head cheerleaderPriscilla, who schemes to copy cheers from a rival school's all-blackcheerleading squad, spoofing "Bring It On." And the siamese twins whowin Homecoming Queen(s) is an absolute riot, especially when homecomingking Jake has to share a dance with them and the band sings "Put yourheads on my shoulder...." TOO FUNNY! A hilarious movie, especially ifyou're high or drunk, and you KNOW what they are spoofing.
Not Another Teen Movie
Not Another Teen Movie
At John Hughes High School, the students are the same as just about every other teenager in a teen movie. The popular jock, Jake, takes a bet from Austin, the cocky blonde guy, that he can transform Janey, the pretty ugly girl, into the prom queen before the prom. But two people are trying to stop Jake from succeeding: his evil sister, Catherine, the cruelest girl in school, and Priscilla, the bitchy cheerleader. And all of their friends are the same as any other teen movie: Areola, the naked foreign exchange student, Les, the beautiful weirdo, Malik, the token black guy, the desperate virgins, Amanda Becker, the perfect girl, Ricky, Janey's obsessed best friend, and Sadie, the VERY old undercover reporter.
