Storyline

New girl Cassie (Brandon Alexander III) and outcast Maggie (Dudley Beene) are easily the most awkward girls in high school. Together, they decide the way to win the hearts of the cute boys and popular girls is to come in first at the school talent show. But rivals Heather, Other Heather, and their popular boyfriends Brett and Dirk will stop at nothing to keep our heroes the laughing stock of the school. It's going to take makeovers, courage, and maybe even a little rapping to beat them in true 80s style. Written by Anonymous

Totally Rockin' Superstar Comedy
3 April 2015 | by (London,United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Written by and starring Brandon Alexander III who plays Cassie. She is the new girl at school and like all teens she just wants to be popular, date the hottest guy, eat sugary deserts and win the talent competition. Problem is Heather and the Other Heather are already super cool and have the boyfriends – the cute Brett and his best bud Dirk who is hotter than Satan's Microwave.

On her first day she meets Maggie (Dudley Beene) who is about as popular as a pork pie at a Bar mitzvah. But girls will be girls and they soon hit it off. The problem is when you have super biatch's like the Heather's in the mix it means all competition has to be eliminated and dreams must be trashed or they will not remain uber cool. Cue a week of shenanigans, loose underwear and partays, (sic) oh and some actual sick!

This is a genuine comedy with laughs scattered throughout like mozzarella on a 12" pizza – with a stuffed crust. Even the school teacher (Mr Klein) is dysfunctionally brilliant. Everyone gets to have a few good lines and the warmth shines through. This is one of those films that are destined to become a cult classic or even better. I enjoyed every single second and can't wait to watch again. After years of alleged 'comedies' where you can cram all the best lines into a thirty second trailer, it is a breath of fresh air to get one which keeps the hits coming; and that is right up to the final scene. I simply can not recommend highly enough, watch alone, watch with friends, watch drunk or sober or any way you choose but just watch it – excellent.
