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

Trivia

The character Tiffany Rogers was not originally in the script until after Rachel McCord auditioned for the role of Jini Jacobs. Though Liz Nicole Abrams ended up playing Jini Jacobs, Nathanael Coffman was so inspired by Rachel McCord 's audition that he wrote the role of Tiffany Rogers for her - the unnervingly sexy raging alcoholic-loner of McDermott High.

Not so bad
27 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

This film isn't ground breaking but neither is it the load of crap a lot of reviewers claim it to be. As a person who's travelled I can honestly say that there are all kinds of people. I've met and spoken with such an array, almost nothing seems impossible when it comes to personality or views.

This is my first opportunity to have seen a film featuring a pothead hero but I do know potheads and good people with rough edges. None of that dialogue was so unbelievable.

Of course the film relies heavily on much abused troupes and some of the less pertinent aspects stretch the bounds of belief- a first rate school shouldn't have the teacher-student dynamic that this one has, but there are schools with teachers this tired and students this disrespectful. This was a second thought though and not important enough to destroy my enjoyment of the film's core.

I found the romance very sweet. And there were humorous as well as touching moments. The emotions displayed, especially between the hero and his friend and the hero and heroine, were poignant even. The last scene I've watched over and over.

I thought Holloway did a great job and this film has made me a fan of his. I've been scouring the net in search of more by him. I fully expect for him to make it big in this next decade.
