yes, it's crap, BUT
for the few who went to prep school in Manhattan, this movie is a disgustingly accurate portrayal. and that's all it really is. if you went to Dalton, you'll find it very amusing, as the fictional school is named "halton". oh yes my friends, thinly veiled, thinly veiled. this movie should be watched if 1)you want to remind yourself how glad you are that you're not 17 anymore, 2)you're friends don't believe your prep school stories, or 3)i guess if you went to a normal school and want to see what the snot is all about...you didn't miss anything. Maybe you did if you were filthy rich and you didn't go to prep school. Maybe then, your parents sent you to Putney and you spent your free time shoveling horse dookie out of tables and you're wondering if the day school kids had it easier. Trust me, you were better off shoveling.
