Product Description

Product Description

High school movie spoof which bears more than a passing resemblance to 'She's All That' and 'Pretty in Pink'. When he is dumped by his girlfriend, popular football star Jake (Chris Evans) takes on a wager in which he is charged with transforming freaky-geeky art student Janey (Chyler Leigh) into a prom queen. After receiving an initially frosty reception, Jake begins to spend time with Janey, and the pair develop strong feelings for each other. But what will happen when she finds out about the wager?

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 26 Oct 2003
Format:DVD
When I started watching this movie I was really concerned that it would be pretty mediocre, unimaginative and dull, having lost my confidence in teen movies with the disintegrating ending to American Pie 2. But this is great and I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to fuss around with movies and wants to watch a winningly no-excuses, riotous and unapologetically immature American comedy. The storyline is pretty formulaic (a teenage rollercoaster term at a high school in nowheresville America ending in the climax of the national institution of the prom), but you don't really notice it with another clever gag always around the corner. With American teen stereotypes to the fore, it bluntly sends each and every one of them up without nerve; the demonic geek; the issues-heavy cheerleader; the over-confident jock; and my personal facourite, the ethnic stereotypes - the black character's role a cheeky pop at colour-conscious America. Its winning element though, is its insistence to be unapologetically sick and vulgar with its humour, especially a particularly disgusting collapsing toilet scene, and the blatant incest gags, and there's also a strong element of very un-American irony throughout the film - the quirky spoofs of Grease's most cringeworthy moments, and even in the title.
One of the best films ever to switch your brain off for - and I mean that in a nice way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good if you know your teen movies 14 Sep 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Speaking as a long-time fan of teen movies, I was quite impressed by the scope and quality of this motion picture. I don't generally go for gross-out humor, but this film takes a slightly higher road than, say, Scary Movie, actually striving to encapsulate all of the bits and pieces of years of other movies into a coherent plot. Sure, there are a few aspects of real raunchiness included here, with two scenes in particular being pretty disgusting, but the movie never sunk to the level of becoming distasteful to my eyes. I also have to admire the verve with which the filmmakers went about their tasks; if you are going to do a full-fledged parody, I say don't hold back, and Not Another Teen Movie does not hold back at all, especially in terms of the language. This movie is brash and unafraid, and that is a real factor in its success.
I was amazed by the vast number of movies that found themselves ridiculed and incorporated into this film; I was expecting send-ups of teen comedies from the past ten years, but this movie draws heavily from a number of classic 80s films and even snatches a few things from 1970 classics such as Grease. Even a number of films I wouldn't consider teen movies (but which do feature teens) are pulled into this satirical universe – e.g., American Beauty. This could almost be a weakness because today's teens may be unfamiliar with a lot of the parodies involved in this production; having come of age in the 80s, I easily spotted the references to classics such as Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, etc., but I wonder how many of today's teens pick up on little things such as the name of the high school (John Hughes High), understand the origins of a character such as Ricky, or see the significance of the prom dress Janey Briggs wears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the funniest film like ever! 12 Dec 2002
Format:DVD
I can honestly say that I've never laughed so much in my life! It had me crying tears of laughter from beginning to end, especially the spoof 'Bring It On' scene & it had me squirming in my seat at the gross 'Cruel Intentions' kissing scene! If you loved the 'Scary Movie' films, & love gross-out movies then this is definately for you! In my opinion it's better than Scary Movie, because the Scream slasher film is just so over-done. You'll love picking out different parts of the film from other teen movies, eg. She's All That, Never Been Kissed, 10 Things I hate About You, just to name a few. The plot is mainly based on She's All That, but with loads of extra gross-out scenes & cheesy lines! Definately a film you can watch over & over & it'll get funnier each time.

4.0 out of 5 stars split down the middle 25 Feb 2003
By Eolake
Format:DVD
"No, not Janey Briggs! She's got glasses! And a ponytail! And she's wearing paint-covered overalls! Ugh! "
- jock Jake, on the "ugly pretty girl".
"Not Another Teen Movie " is a deeply split film. And that is reflected by the reviews. Some hate it, some love it. Me, I quite like it, oddly.
I actually found it interesting enough to listen to both of two commentary tracks, one from producer/director, and one from the cast. And this revealed what causes the twin personality of the film. Apparently when the director got offered the original script, he did not like it at all, because it was all one big gross-out joke with no story. So he turned it down. But they really wanted him, and so he asked them that a writer he knows could work over the script.
And it got worked over so thoroughly that the finished film apparently basically only has one scene that was in the original script. And it happens that this scene is also the one that clearly is the big gratuitous gross-out scene in the film. It is doubtlessly a scene that many modern teens will find hilarious. And very tellingly, it is also a scene that neither director/producor or the cast like at all! They would clearly rather have been without it at all, but kept it for box-office reasons. (What scene it is? Let us just say that it involves a toilet and hundreds of liters of chocolate sirup!)
Also interestingly, the original script only had parody of films from the nineties. But the producers wanted to give it more breadth and more heart, and to include lots of story from famous eighties teen movies, like Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, etc. (They even have Molly Ringwald appear in the end.)
One of the best things it has is female lead Chyler Leigh. Here is a prediction: she is going to be big, you read it here first.
