Storyline

Kate (Dominique Swain) is the girl everyone loves to hate. As has become tradition, everyday she meets her friends Casey (James Franco) and Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) after school to trash the kids they dislike. But today is no ordinary day. Today, Kate has just been in a violent fight with her little sister (Beverley Mitchell), and now she's got plenty on her mind. When she poses the question, "What's the worst thing you've ever done to somebody else," the guys realize they're in for some excitement. As they each reveal some humorous but cruel anecdotes about their pasts, the mood slightly tenses up, and their memories get more and more disturbing, to a point of no return. But, how much can they trust each other? Who really is the meanest? And most importantly, do mean people really get what's coming to them in the long run? Only Mean People Suck can answer.

Crybaby wannabes from NYU suck
11 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Mean People Suck" was amazing in the fact that it forced you to laugh when you do not want to, much like Tarantino did in "Pulp Fiction." Tarantino is one of Matthew Cole Wiess' favorite writers and directors as you can obviously see when viewing the film. I know this not because I am a self-centered b****rd, but because I am a self-centered b****rd who actually took the time to talk to the director about the film, rather than making my own holier-than-thou assumptions. He worked as an entertainment journalist during college, so that is how he made his contacts. It seems to me that many who watch this film (most likely on the festival circuit) hate it so much because it is so damn good. Sure, the topic isn't original, but how often is it? It was presented in such a satirical manner that it went over many people's heads. Seems to me that those who have reviewed this movie for the IMDb are seriously jealous and in need of lives of their own. Hey, keep your heads up, kids. One day, just maybe 21st Century Fox will option your movie too.
