This is one of those movies one gets sucked into because the trailer seems like it might be fun, quirky, and clever. Instead, this one was boring, weird, and dumb. My wife and I tried, we really did. I am a university professor and love my students in all their fun, quirky, and clever ways. This movie did not include a realistic portrayal of any student I have ever met. This movie did not include an actually funny joke. This movie seemed to want to play out a strange gender comparison game in which the goal was to see who were more ridiculous and hollow, the harmless chumps otherwise known as boys, or the self-satisfied and hopelessly superficial girls. There was not a likable character in the lot and I would take my most challenging student over any of the pathetic characters in this movie. I feel badly for the actors and even worse for their professors.
