Kirk advises Dizzy that a girl will "powerlevel" him, as though it were a beat-down. "Powerlevel" actually refers to a concept in Kirk's beloved EverQuest wherein a higher-level character protects and/or enhances a lower-level character in order to help the lower-level character "level-up" at a faster rate. It is actually something desirable. Ironically, The New Guy and EverQuest were developed by the same company. See more »

just when you think they are going to go overboard with the dork vs jocks and dissing his old dork friends conflicts, they don't, thank you. Plus, more often than not, the main villan does not even take that big of a role and his friends and girlfriend make him look like the idiot that he is. Because of these reasons,this movie is totally enjoyable and easy to watch.
