A French foreign exchange student, named Genevieve, comes to a small town in Texas to attend a local high school where she shacks up with the school's popular head cheerleader, Starla, and her parents. But Starla soon learns that this French girl is not only smart, attractive, and naive, but quite conniving when Geneviere, with no social life of her own, begins to take over Starla's, starting with stealing the affections her parents, her friends and Starla's boyfriend. When Starla is forced to quit the cheerleading squad after getting some bad grads, Genevieve moves in to take her place. When Starla figures out that Genevieve deliberately set it up by giving her bad tutoring to fail all those classes, she begins an all-out personal war against Genevieve to take back her social life.

We're all capable of doing bad things. Lord knows I've done my share. Things I'm truly ashamed of.

The USA DVD version runs 88 minutes which is shorter than the original version. The TV network version, although edited with some scenes cut, has additional scenes and extended scenes which include a longer version of the opening 'Beef' beauty pa gent with the dance interrupted by Doreen protesting beef, as well as extended dressing room scenes between Starla, Ashley and Tanner. Also cut from the DVD is the part of Kimmy Sue introducing Tanner, the beauty finalist, first ahead of Ashley who mumbles her response to the questions. An extended scene of Starla talking to Geneieve in her bedroom about her desire to become a TV star. See more »
