Not Another Teen Movie

MPAA Rating: R

Entertainment: +1

Content: -4

With a plot that wouldn't fill a thimble, this ridiculous comedy makes fun of many other popular teen movies. Conceited, arrogant Jake Wyler (Chris Evans), the football team captain, bets he can make the homeliest girl in high school, Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh), queen of the prom. That's the whole story. The rest of NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE is a series of disgusting, graphic sexual incidents. Unfortunately, it will probably appeal to many teens.

The opening scene shows Janey in her bedroom caressing a tool for self-gratification. When Jake's sister Catherine (Mia Kirshner), known as the cruelest girl in school, tries unsuccessfully to seduce her brother, she volunteers to teach aging undercover reporter "never-been-kissed" Sadie (Beverly Polcyn), to kiss in a nauseating scene. Trying to win Janey's affection, Jake goes into the kitchen and comes back wearing only strategically placed mounds of whipped cream. A foreign exchange student (Cerina Vincent) sits nude from the waist up in the principal's office and later appears nude at a party, implying that she never wears clothes. In a crowded school hall, a largely ignored couple are obviously having sex, which reveals the girl's bare backside. Mixed in with the teenagers' sexual obsessions is the unrelenting cruelty of a sadistic football coach who forces a player with blood streaming out his ears to stay in the game. The coach screams at least 17 GDs during practice, and 36 obscenities further litter the dialogue. Crude bathroom humor includes a commode exploding, sending excrement through the ceiling and into a classroom. Featuring scenes that belong in a porn video, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE portrays teenagers as stupid, immoral, and perverted. Avoid it.
