Marcy and Summer have to come up with dates for the Annual Spring Fling dance. Their only option is to take two geeks and face the teasing from the popular girls. Everything changes when they are given a magic ring that grants wishes. In a Cinderella-like twist, two pet rats are transformed into hunks for their dates to the dance. The only problem is the hunks still behave like RATS... and always at the most embarrassing times!

Did You Know?


Marci Kornbalm: All rats want to do is eat, run on the treadmill... and mate.
Summer Weingarten: What?
Marci Kornbalm: Which... which, when you get down to it, Summer, doesn't make them much different than most guys. Most high school guys, anyway. So, we keep feeding them and keep them busy and that will keep their mind off the mating aspect of the situation.
[Spike & Scooter start sniffing the girls]
Marci Kornbalm: Um, you better go get some nachos - a double order - extra cheese.

Response to above comment
1 August 2002 | by Linjen77See all my reviews

I have seen this movie and I wanted to respond to the comment above, I don't think this movie was made in hopes of winning an Oscar. It's a kid/teenage movie and nothing more. It's just pure entertainment. I think the comment above had way too much thought put into it. Yes it's not the greatest acting but it's a movie that will entertain young kids, you should take into consideration that there are not very many movies out there for young kids to see and I think this movie would be an appropriate choice for kids. I'm pretty sure I can think of movies that are worse but I'm not going to take the time to think of any.
