Was I watching the same film as the previous reviewer?
3 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This feels like the love child of Grease and terrible humor that no one could possibly find funny.

In all honesty at first I thought I was watching a bad C grade kid's movie, but it was far, far worse than that.

Everything from the middle aged women playing teenagers, to the overuse of the word "Foon", was just, well, horrible to watch. It honestly made me question French comedy as a whole, is this really the kind of crap they intend to put out for the rest of eternity? SPOILER ALERT: But don't worry, I'm just saving you the trouble of watching this piece of- well yeah, you get the point.

Alright, so like many other high school movies, this is about geeks and ugly people overcoming the popular kids (known as "Foons" in this movie?), but the catch is, the popular kids are in fact ugly too, and terrible actors at that.

So out of the popular "Foons" you've got your 2 big breasted middle aged females playing teenagers and, you have your typical Travolta-type character, but here's where it gets interesting.

You've got a Hispanic guy who thinks hes Elvis (to make matters worse, he actually sings like Elvis, but in French later in the film, possibly the most horrific thing I have ever seen.) So all in all, a bunch of stuff happens, and they all end up killing each other, which may sound interesting, but trust me, its not. at all. if you value yourself in any way shape or form, do not ever see this movie, ever.

I don't care how bored or stupid you are, just don't see it.

0/10, and that's being generous.
