A standard premise: a geeky college student blackmails a few cheaters into ingratiating him upon the girl for whom he has the hots. What he doesn't figure is that the scheme will backfire.
Formulaic, sophomoric comedy with a few sporadic chuckles, takes an odd turn at the climax which leaves the viewer confused as to whom exactly the main character was in the story. I won't reveal more than that, for I'll leave that to the moviegoers.
*1/2 out of ****
