Betty Cooper: I never forgot the night of the storm, Archie. I never forgot how I stood by and watched you chase after Veronica. How I never just went after what I wanted.
[Betty turns on the shower]
Archie: What are you doing?
Betty Cooper: Something I always wanted to do with you, Archie. I'm sick of being Miss Goody-Two-Shoes. Make me a woman, Archie. Make... me... wild.

Barney would have been better...
3 January 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

To start off, I think this movie definitely was horrible! I have been an Archie fan since I was very young. I love the comic books, but I don't love this movie.

This movie sucked because Jughead shouldn't be a shrink, the teenage Jughead we all know does not give a dam* about other people! Yeah, he was an excellent friend to Archie, but Jughead isn't the type to refrain from eating cheeseburgers' all day and listen to pathetic problems.

Not only was the character 'Jughead' bad, but Reggie Mantle, the thug we all know would not seek that type of revenge to the gang. Reg was full of dirty gags, but he wasn't like that. Reggie was a jerk, not a jack***! Geez, even Reggie had 'some' morals.

And Betty and Veronica's sad attempt to win over Archie didn't seem to be too realistic. The ending is pretty sad, also..."just friends"--right. That is the love-sick Archie we all know. NO way, Archie would not loose contact over the woman he loved for his whole teenage years for an annoying fiancee. Puh-lease, who made this movie?

Overall, this movie stunk. Big Ethel will never be a model, Jughead had no intentions to become some 'rap wannabe'. Along with Archie's Weird Mysteries, this has been a horrible movie and I'm sorry I ever watched it.
