I laughed, and I laughed, and I laughed....
15 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's once in a blue moon that a film can make me have to stop laughing for a second because the back of my head is hurting and my cheeks feel like they are going to fall off. The evening started out as surfing Netflix with my boyfriend, how every excellent movie find goes nowadays, and without saying anything to me he picked this movie and we were off on what we thought was going to be an absolutely terrible film with low budget and zero laughs from the first 10 minutes. (Just really rocky, and you have to get a feel for the film.) Don't be fooled with this one though folks. About the time the teachers and school are starting to be introduced is when it really kicked into gear for me.

Written by and starring Brandon Alexander III, this man brings us a surpassing in hilarity parody of 80s teen satires that is wrapped up in the perfect amount of pizazz and sincerity that it comes off as a genuinely funny piece of work, and not another run of the mill independent comedy. The main character is most definitely the best thing about the movie. Cassandra "Totally Rockin' Superstar Extraordinaire" Glenn, You're Welcome, brings to the movie nothing but constant joke after joke, as the writer would have the best lines and character for himself. Sometimes jokes so quick and witty, others so slapstick that it juggles that laughing trigger in your mind to the point where you will be laughing carrying on into the next hilarious scene for all different reasons.

Yes, as with any film that tries really hard, not all the jokes are a hit. There are just some parts that are a bit awkward, and like I said it is very obvious they are trying really hard to pull all the laughs out of the audience they can get, which I usually hate, but hey, it totally works in this case! This is a completely joyous experience from beginning to end.

The supporting characters are all completely memorable and in their own skin as well. Maggie is an excellently portrayed best friend till the end by Dudley Beene. Though Alexander is the star, Beene brings his own flair and personality to the screen in the best way possible. The Heathers are snotty and unlikable, how they are supposed to be, but in that way likable. Their boyfriends even have a nice role as the misunderstood gay guys of the group, and their mother played by none other than Cassandra Peterson (Ms. Elvira) has heartfelt speeches the audience has heard a million times over in any teen drama with a positive message. All of it was great material to work with and the actors captured it perfectly.

An excellent comedy, more so if somewhat dark, somewhat raunchy, drag comedy is your thing. Even with low budget, there are scenes that feel more professional and put together than most blockbusters nowadays. I will definitely be watching this movie again soon, and will definitely be showing it to my friends.
