Storyline

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. Written by Will

Trivia

Eric Christian Olsen's character, Austin, is a combination of Lance Harbor in Varsity Blues (1999) & Dean Sampson in She's All That (1999). Both of those characters were portrayed by Paul Walker. See more »

Goofs

When Jake and Ricky Lipman are both after the girl, Ricky runs across the street dodging through cars. When one of the cars stop, the car in the left hand corner of the screen seems to be a face of a Chevorlet Metro. But when that car stops and beeps its horn, its horn is off audio. Chevy Metros have a high pitched horn. Chevy Metros don't have a regular car horn audio. See more »

Quotes

Jake: No, not Janey Briggs. She's got glasses. And a ponytail. Ugh, she's got paint on her overalls. What is that?

Crazy Credits

Two bonus scenes at the end: Mr Briggs, in a parody of a scene from "American Pie", talks about a "three-way" while holding two pies. The albino folk singer sings about being blinded from her corneas burned out by the sun. (This scene comes after all the credits have finished.) See more »

Anti-Teen Movie Genius
31 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie! It out does even the best of Mel Brooks films! Name one other movie that manages to make fun of over 12 teen movies at the same time and maintain plot cohesion. The only reason I wouldn't give it a 10 out 10 is because none of the story line is original to the film. All the stereotypical characters are well acted and the script keeps you laughing throughout the entire film. It is the best teen movie out there, even though it is making fun of all the rest of them. It is filled to the brim with tramps, hotties, jocks, hormone driven underclassmen, high school jargon and all the other things we have come to enjoy and loathe about teen movies.
