Narrative Review American Teen Directed by: Nanette Burstein Cast: Hannah Bailey, Colin Clemens, Geoff Haase, Megan Krizmanich, Mitch Reinholt Time: 1 hr 35 mins Rating: PG-13 High school is hard enough.

Colin; the star athlete with pressure on his shoulders. Mitch; the dreamboat. Jake; the social outcast. This alone is the main problem with the film.

High School survival tip No. 1: If you are low on the social totem pole, do not forward a topless photo of yourself to the best guy friend of the most popular girl in school. The result will traumatize you.
