*1/2 out of 4.
Routine teen effort about a nerd (Shane West) and a high school jock (James Franco) who team up together to help each other land the girl of their dreams. Very appealing cast and competent direction makes this film mildly entertaining, but their is nothing that seperates this predictable film from 1000 other films in this genre.

Rated PG-13; Sexual Situations and Profanity.
