American Crap Fest, 3 June 2009
Author: jts0405 from United States

First of all if this is a movie about high school, why does everybody look like they're in their thirties. You would think if they were in their thirties they would finally learn how to act. If they were trying to act badly, then they all deserve Oscars, if not then they should never appear in another movie again. I've watched paint dry that was more interesting than this. This could be another form of torture, it's worse than water-boarding. That's an hour and a half of my life that I will never get back. So basically you get what you expect from American High School, a crap fest with some of the worst writing I have ever seen put to film.
