A Pathetic Excuse for a Movie Review.
Since I want to find something “useful” to do here on G-Blog.net, I’ve decided to write a movie review.
A friend of mine and I went to go see “Not Another Teen Movie” yesterday. Why? I’m not sure. Probably because we were bored, and I didn’t particularly want to see “Vanilla Sky“.
In short, this movie is pretty awful – with a couple of great moments that almost make up for it. And no, I’m not talking about the brief nudity, you sick, cheeky monkey! 🙂
If you ever saw “Scary Movie“, this is the same idea. But instead of making fun of the Horror genre, we’re making fun of the Teen Movie genre. There are references to everything from “Cruel Intentions” , “Bring It On” , “American Pie” , and “She’s All That“; to “The Breakfast Club“, “Sixteen Candles” , and even “Better Off Dead” . That’s just a small sampling of the movies “Not Another Teen Move” makes reference too.
I’m not going to bore you with a plot outline, since there really isn’t one, but I don’t think you really need it to “enjoy” this movie.
Over all, it’s a pretty mindless flick, but it does point out some of the more absurd “plot” devices used in the typical teen movie in a humorous way, which is what the director was going for. There were some funny moments, some stupid moments, some disgusting moments, and a couple of great cameos.
If you’re a fan of cheesey 80’s “Brat Pack” movies, or even some of the more recent teen films; or if you are just bored one Saturday, and want to see something mindless and relatively funny, give “Not Another Teen Movie” a try.
(Who wishes there were exchange students like Areola when he was in highschool.)
Did you see the movie?
Do you think this review sucks?
Do you think I’m an idiot savant?
Let me know, leave a comment.
