Hilarious Teen Movie- Clean but current - Perfect for Youth Groups
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie went over so well in our youth group that we had to watch it several times within a two month period. It is still the most popular prize in our meetings.

The characters of the movie compliment each other so well that it is a believable portrayal of a road trip adventure. It has moments of supreme slapstick humor as well as hilarious dialog. If for nothing else, this movie should be purchased to see the Jackie Chan like fight seen (I say like because it's totally a spoof and AWESOME!).

It has several moral principles which are caught and not overtly MORAL

  • slap you in the face - make you feel like a dork because you can't


measure up.

For the girls, it also has a cute love story and "hot" guys (says the girls in our youth group). For the boys, it has a "hot" girl (says the guys in our youth group) and "stupid humor," which they love. I can't say enough about this movie. Buy it now and watch it! Cuz its FABULOUS!
