In what was meant as a harmless birthday prank, three of Reagan High School's most popular girls, Julie, Marcie, and Courtney pretend to kidnap their friend, the latter shoving a jawbreaker into the victim's mouth to keep her from screaming. Their plan goes awry when the girl accidentally swallows the jawbreaker, choking to death. The cool and calculating Courtney tries to cover the crime but is found out by school geek Fern Mayo. In return for her silence, Courtney transforms the gawky Fern into the stylishly beautiful Vylette, leaving the conscience-stricken Julie out in the cold, threatening to set her up for the girl's murder if she breaks her silence.Written by

Well, it's a teenage flick with the blond from Scream and the girl in the face wash commercials. It was a new release so it seemed worth a try. Too bad it wasn't. To start off with the obnoxious, undeveloped characters that grow tiring after the opening scene are, like the candy, a little hard to swallow. First of all, the incredibly unrealistic situation is by no means justified, and the police and whoever else is involved must have had to been completely idiotic to be swayed by these whiney suburbanite mall queens. This movie offers little else than a fairly decent sound track.
