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

The character of Fern (Judy Greer) was inspired by Sissy Spacek's "Carrie" role (in which P.J. Soles and William Katt also appeared in). Greer played Ms. Desjardin in 2013's "Carrie" remake. See more »
When the newly-created Vylette walks into the school hallway for the first time, we clearly see her wearing a pair of coral-colored high-heeled pumps. The shot of her entering the cafeteria however clearly shows her wearing red low-heeled scuffs, then when she's seated the high-heeled pumps are back. See more »
This movie totally rocked!! I thought this movie had great punch-lines, great style, great music, and above all an AWESOME cast. Rose McGowan is great in this movie, along with newcomer Judy Greer. Julie Benz and Rebecca Gayheart also are good in this movie. This movie sort of put a twist on the teen sensation, along with an R rating and TONS of sex appeal. Overall, I give this movie ****1/2 of *****
