Storyline

At John Hughes High School, the students are the same as just about every other teenager in a teen movie. The popular jock, Jake, takes a bet from Austin, the cocky blonde guy, that he can transform Janey, the pretty ugly girl, into the prom queen before the prom. But two people are trying to stop Jake from succeeding: his evil sister, Catherine, the cruelest girl in school, and Priscilla, the bitchy cheerleader. And all of their friends are the same as any other teen movie: Areola, the naked foreign exchange student, Les, the beautiful weirdo, Malik, the token black guy, the desperate virgins, Amanda Becker, the perfect girl, Ricky, Janey's obsessed best friend, and Sadie, the VERY old undercover reporter. Written by Will

Goofs

When Jake and Ricky Lipman are both after the girl, Ricky runs across the street dodging through cars. When one of the cars stop, the car in the left hand corner of the screen seems to be a face of a Chevorlet Metro. But when that car stops and beeps its horn, its horn is off audio. Chevy Metros have a high pitched horn. Chevy Metros don't have a regular car horn audio. See more »

Quotes

Janey: I read Sylvia Plath, I listen to Bikini Kill and I eat Tofu. I am a unique rebel.
Mitch: It sounds more like you're a lesbo.
Mr. Briggs: Hey, Mitch, now leave your sister alone.
Janey: Thank you, daddy.
Mr. Briggs: If Janey wants to be a rug-muncher, that's her decision.

Crazy Credits

Two bonus scenes at the end: Mr Briggs, in a parody of a scene from "American Pie", talks about a "three-way" while holding two pies. The albino folk singer sings about being blinded from her corneas burned out by the sun. (This scene comes after all the credits have finished.) See more »

oh yes, this is beautiful
9 October 2002 | by ShippmeisterSee all my reviews

Having seen 16 Candles, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Buelers Day off, The Breakfast Club and just about every film John Hughes ever made, I was able to appreciate this movie for all that it really is and make comparisons with the original. Absolute hilarity from the very beginning as it takes of 16 Candles except everybody remembers when, in this case, she would have wanted them too forget.(Vibrator incident) What follows is a slant on everything Hughes ever made "We are all just one big group here at John Hughes High, now everybody break off into smaller groups, take a good look at the people next to you, they will be your only friends for the next 4 years". this movie made me laugh and laugh, I dont know how some of my friends who haven't seen any Hughes movies except for Ferris Buellers Day Off would find some parts funny, but thats what you get for not watching fine movies, "Human recastranant!!!" Score: 9/10 (lost 1 point for the grandma kiss and the fact it didn't rip on Some Kind of Wonderful)
