Not terrible, not very good... average time waster
10 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Written, directed and acted like a very typical US-made teen comedy. All the ingredients are there: good looking teen cast, pop-sounding but generic soundtrack, a few local Quebec celebrities thrown in the mix like Olympic diver Alex Despaties in a surprisingly well acted supporting role, and you get your average moderately entertaining flick.

Sure, all the roles are stereotypes but what do you expect ? Once you get over the annoyingly clumsy product placement, like for Super Écran, a pay-TV broadcaster that has it's logo in the most incredibly stupid and hard to believe spots, like gym towels and coffee cups, in a school, no less... you have to endure a low-budget music score and predictable plot.

But, hey: all those kids do a decent acting job. Fans of Eva Green should look for Catherine de Lean as Julie, the resident bitch: she could be her younger sister.
