Greg is near the end of his senior year in high school, wanting to go to the prom, eyeing Cinny (the school's beauty with brains) from afar, and regularly trippin', daydreaming about being a big success as a poet, a student, a lover. His mom wants him to apply to colleges, but Greg hasn't a clue. One of his teachers, Mr. Shapic, tries to inspire him, too. He finally figures out he can get close to Cinny if he asks her for help with college applications. But friendship isn't enough, he wants romance and a prom date. So, he tells a few lies and, for awhile, it seems to be working. Then, things fall apart and Greg has to figure out how to put the trippin aside and get real. Written by

Everything in the movie was predictable and cartoonish. It kind of reminded me of a "black" "Saved By The Bell" movie. I got tired of the played sad/infatuated with beautiful-girl/day-dreamin' high school kid movies. I mean, this sort of story is just played out. Surprisingly, I liked "Good Burger" better than this movie, and that's by Nickelodeon!!!! I would wait until this movie appears on TNT, USA, or Comedy Central to see it again. I definitely wasted $13.50 on a date to see this movie.
There were a lot of unnecessary plots, profanity, and scenes throughout the movie. They were so insignificant, the movie got off beat by a long shot. It deserves a Golden Raspberry Award for "Worst Cheesiness." The only part I liked in the movie, was when they trying to feed his grandfather at the breakfast table. Now that was comedy. Overall the movie belongs in a dumpster, next to the used up Goodwill items.
