Not Another Teen Movie (R, 2001) ... Average:
(Chris Evans, Chyler Leigh, Mia Kirshner, Jaime Pressly,
Randy Quaid, Mr.T, Cerina Vincent, Molly Ringwald, Melissa Joan Hart)
Not Another Teen Movie is a contradiction to its title, which I guess
is all part of the joke. Hardy-har-har-har. It's a spoof on
teen-targeted movies of the last decade or more: from American Pie to
10 Things I Hate About You to Clueless to 16 Candle to Pretty in Pink to
many many more.
Actually, what it really is, is an excuse to be crude on film for 90
minutes. Now, I'm all for crude - big fan of crude, in fact. But
sometimes crude just for the sake of being crude is just dull. So dull
that Bev was asleep 30 minutes into the movie, while I sat there with an
annoyed look on my face as I wondered exactly when I was going to laugh.
It didn't happen.
The previews for this movie attempted to draw in the 30-somethings who loved
movies like Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink and were ready to laugh at the
premise. What those people got was 90 minutes of juvenile humor that
even 14 year old boys probably didn't find that humorous - e.g. enter the
bodily fluids spurting from every orifice. Ho-ho, there's a
knee-slapper! A girl on a toilet who gets covered in her own
excrement! Can't miss that Oscar-winning scene! Oh, and let's
not forget the high school girl French kissing the 100 year old woman and
getting covered in slimy spit. Get the sorry picture?
All in all, this is a really sad torturous excuse for a movie.
