Like a nice light dessert
28 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it's a fun, pleasant, good-natured wheel. Smart, clever and funny, with fresh twists on the typical high school underdog comedy. Tone reminds of Suburgatory or Hairspray: if you liked those, see it. If you hated them, don't.

Also like Suburgatory, really gifted young cast. It gives all the main stars loads of fun moments, and they nail them time after time. Jennifer Tilly is great and hilarious as usual, and Jim Belushi is really good too. I maybe could have gone for a bit less gross-out humor, but a couple of the gross-outs were actually funny and original. For what it was designed to be, great execution.

Sound is a little muddy in the opening moments, but then improves, so hang in there, relax, and enjoy.
