Storyline

Marcy and Summer have to come up with dates for the Annual Spring Fling dance. Their only option is to take two geeks and face the teasing from the popular girls. Everything changes when they are given a magic ring that grants wishes. In a Cinderella-like twist, two pet rats are transformed into hunks for their dates to the dance. The only problem is the hunks still behave like RATS... and always at the most embarrassing times!

The stupidity makes it amazingly funny
13 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first watched Ratz, I couldn't believe how much I laughed. It is about two teen best friends, Marci and Summer, who thanks to their wacky adult buddy Doris, get a hold of a magical ring that grants wishes. Before they know it they are responsible for two teenaged boys, who were formally rats, and plan on taking the male hotties to the Spring Fling dance. Chaos obviously ensues. The concept of this movie is so far-fetched, the plot line so crazy, and the acting so mediocre that it made this movie one of the funniest I have ever seen! The comedy of it is cute and humorous, making you laugh if you don't try to over analyze it. If you watched Ratz with an open mind and a positive out look, you will find it funny. It is not meant to be one of those silver screen, four star comedies. But it is still good enough to entertain you.
