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

Quotes

Mandy Meyers: [looking back at Andy and Ferrat] Who are those guys? They're kind of cute.
Jini Jacobs: Uh... the one on the left is Ferrat, like the animal. His real name is Richard Barret. And the other is... Andy Wasilewski.
Mandy Meyers: Hmm...
Jini Jacobs: They're both slackers and definitely not cute once you get to know them. All those two do is get loaded, jack off, and try to put their dicks in girls who don't know any better. They're entirely unreliable, excessively immature - all in all, horrible boyfriend material. Basically... just ...

Movie Made Me Uncomfortable
28 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie made me uncomfortable. The dressing, the way the characters spoke, the way they act is completely unrealistic. I'm not sure the writer had any knowledge of how teenagers really are. There are no schools on this planet who allow teachers and students to interact like that. Some of the actors were so bad, I wondered how they even got hired. Some of the parts were so cringe worthy I wanted to hide under a pillow. The music is awkward too, and the sex scenes, language and drug use is ridiculous. The plot is horrible too. this stuff would never happen in real life. The two main character speak in complete monotone the whole time, display no emotion, say ridiculous things. All around bad.
