The setting for the movie was based on writer and director Maggie Carey's high school in Boise, ID. Carey graduated from Borah High in 1993, and sculpted many locations in the film to the surrounding area, including Big Bun and Borah Pool. See more »

A judge? Who do you think you are, Lolita? I mean, you lured me in. You sought me out, and then you lie to me? What's that about? Oh that's good. I think I just wrote a song.

I think the reason so many people disliked this flick was because they went in with the wrong expectations. You hear about a teen sex comedy staring women and immediately people assume something more sophisticated and classy would be the by product.
This is not that movie.
This film is both dry and ludicrous, crass and hilarious.
Aubrey Plaza's one note characters fit this movie well.
What I liked most about the flick was that it finally gave a voice to the sexually confused teenage GIRL population. The movie was written and directed by a woman, and it's pretty clear when you're watching.
It's not an Oscar winner, but it's funny. It's a very progressive movie in the sense that it reverses the normal teen comedy gender stereotypes and gives the audience an unfiltered and unashamed (however hyperbolic) look at female sexuality, insecurities and intricacies.
NOT FOR KIDS.
