| A bland and trite "teen flick" that is barely worth seeing.
I am only writing this because I think the other reviews I've seen for this movie are far off base. "Teen flicks" in general have a tendency to play off of the same premise with little variation or creativity, and are--generally speaking--bad as a genre. There are a few exceptions, paramount among them "Clueless." This film isn't as horrible and unbearable as "10 Things I Hate About You," and I actually think it was probably a little better than "American Pie"--although I rather disliked the latter thus is not a very high compliment for this film either.

Quickly, to break it down, I will tell you the main problems with this film. 1) It recycles the horrible "Prom is coming up and I want to take the popular girl" premise, which seems to be the basis of many a horrible teen movie. 2) The primary conflict doesn't evolve until the movie is half over--up to that point, it is just a waste of time waiting for the primary conflict, and the action is pretty boring. 3) The end is predictable from the the first couple scenes of the movie... not a good thing. Save your money (and time), and rent something a little more original.
