Storyline

Gretchen has bigger problems than abysmal fashion sense: She's 17, painfully awkward and stuck in the most unforgiving place on earth - high school. When her obsession with school bad boy Ricky gets out of hand, her mother sends her to an emotional treatment center to recover. She has to travel elsewhere, however, to truly begin to understand why she fixates on the wrong kind of guy. Written by Anonymous

Ignorance at it's finest
27 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

Not worth the time for a review. But since IMDb.com says that I have to write at least ten lines, here goes.

The wigs were ridiculous, the actors, especially the males were a joke. I kept hoping, waiting for this movie to get good because I love independent films, but not only was the movie very slow paced, it was not at all good.

This movies showed what should have been the progression of the main character, but all she did was slide backwards. It was so boring that I thought of changing the channel the whole way through, but decided I would try to be fair and watch it entirely. In the final scene,my first thought was that I had just wasted a half an hour.
