Storyline

Kate (Brittany Snow) is the new girl in school. She catches John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe) dating three different girls at once: Carrie - the smart girl, Heather - the cheerleader, and Beth - the activist slut; none of them are aware that they are not the only girl in John's heart. Kate, having been raised by a single mother, has seen the pain caused by playboys like John Tucker, and she won't stand idly by. Together with the three jilted ex-girlfriends, they hatch a plan to teach John a lesson. Things rarely go as planned, especially when Kate starts to think that she might be falling for John herself.

Trivia

Since shooting took place during the actual school year in an existing high school, the crew had to ask students for permission to use and re-dress their lockers for shooting. See more »

Goofs

When John is receiving his Teen Awareness award, he is shown from the front holding the plaque in his hand, right side up. The shot cuts to a shot from behind, and you can clearly see the mounting slot on the back is on the bottom, which means he is now holding the plaque upside down. See more »

Quotes

Surprisingly good
2 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Today it was 100 degrees in New York City and frankly I went more for the air conditioning than the content, but this movie was much better than the trailer or the critics give it credit for. As solid as "Bring it On," it is definitely a notch above the average teen comedy; not quite "Mean Girls" but a good substitute. The girls are all terrific and Jesse Metcafe struts his acting and physique to an even higher standard than what he demonstrated on Desperate Housewives.

Filled with quite a few clever innuendos, it might make a few moms and dads cringe, but I guess kids today have heard worse. Also, it cleverly used remakes of classic songs for the bulk of its score.
