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

Mandy Meyers: [approaches Andy, who's sitting under a tree reading a book] Hey.
Andy Wasilewski: Hey, what's up?
Mandy Meyers: What are you doing here so late? It's kind of strange seeing you here 50 minutes after the last bell... with a book.
Andy Wasilewski: Who says there's no surprises anymore? All you got to do is break some rules.
Mandy Meyers: That's a very liberating thought... but if you break too many rules you wind up in jail.
Andy Wasilewski: If we're not in jail already... where the fuck are we?

Never underestimate...
21 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The power of a well-timed f*@k.

That was a piece of advice I heard years ago when I was just starting out as a writer, and it has always stuck with me. Apparently, the writer of this film did not hear the same because the characters are foul-mouthed little twits who curse like their high school principal was Quentin Tarantino. The worst part is that when they do it in front of authority figures (parents, teachers, etc), there's no reaction. I'm in my 30s, and I'm still afraid to curse in front of my parents! Trust me, there's a reaction!

Amateur hour for sure. It's like the writer went, "I have no clue how to write high school students. Hey, let me give them a mouth like a sailor on leave and maybe that'll work!"

It didn't. It so didn't.
