Storyline

After silver spoon Geoffrey tricks arranged socialite date Diana Riggs into dumping waitering commoner lover Percy, she seeks revenge on all boys. So she convinces her private prep school, the only local one for girls, to limit prom dates to the winners of an exhausting competition between Geoffrey's rich jocks school Lancaster and Percy's more modest nerds school Selby. Failing to talking either school out of the whole war, Percy refuses to be bought by Geoffrey and proves a worthy adversary in a ruthless war between horny hordes, which Diane's herd is determined to fire on further. The principals have a feud and agendas of their own. After the close result follows a final twist. Written by KGF Vissers

Funny with a solid message
22 January 2011 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

Ignore FordPrefect's comments. I've watched this movie twice now, and it holds up to second viewing quite well. More importantly, the message that Myles Hainesworth tries to convey--fight for what you want, never take it for granted--is muted at times but valid none the less. What I particularly enjoyed about this movie was its basis in an actual school rivalry between two boys schools in Montreal, Selwyn House (Selby House in the film) and Lower Canada College (Lancaster College). The real girls school is ECS, instead of the ACS of the film. Alia Shawkat does not disappoint. It's good fun with a good message. And you can definitely watch it with your folks, provided they are understanding about strong language in a film with actors playing teenagers.
