Storyline

In the final days of her senior year Mandy Meyers is forced to change high schools when her father's business moves the family from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California. As attractive as she is intelligent, Mandy sees McDermott High as a chance to start fresh, have some fun, and try things she's never done before. On Mandy's first day of school, McDermott High's two prettiest yet cruelest seniors befriend Mandy and attempt to show her the wild side of Southern California high school life. Likewise, the entire male senior class has also taken notice of Mandy, and she's soon being chased by both an apathetic yet charismatic stoner, and a star football player. Written by Nathanael Coffman

Great Movie!
31 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Getting that Girl and thought it it was completely awesome! I sure do hope they make a part 2... That would be sweet... Boozer was my favorite character over all... I love his opening scene... Hot chicks and Awesome parties... This movie is like the modern day "Grease" without all the singing... Getting that Girl is a must see movie (that is... if you like movies). When this movie was over I wanted more... I couldn't believe it was over that quick... I felt as if I was just starting to get used to everyone in the movie and then it was over... not too mention the soundtrack to the movie was sweet too. Great opening! Great Actors! Great Script! But I Still want more! Please make a part 2... I would rate this movie up there with Harold & Kumor. Maybe make part 2 in 3-D (just a thought)... Overall... I loved this movie... If I owned it now I would watch it over and over.
