Exquisite!
26 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

So lovably formulaic that the "dramatic equation" the piece works from is practically flashed on screen at regular intervals, like the telephone number for an infomercial ordering line! Jennifer Grey is outstanding as the coldly Machiavellian "popular girl" who foolishly creates her own rival out of Nerdly Chick Numero Uno. Watch the hunky high-school footballers trip over themselves with sexual anticipation the moment this homely creature applies some eyeliner. A hoot!
