When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguised as him, and proceeds to fall for one of his soccer teammates, and soon learns she's not the only one with romantic troubles.
Kate (Brittany Snow) is the new girl in school. She catches John Tucker (Jesse Metcalfe) dating three different girls at once: Carrie - the smart girl, Heather - the cheerleader, and Beth - the activist slut; none of them are aware that they are not the only girl in John's heart. Kate, having been raised by a single mother, has seen the pain caused by playboys like John Tucker, and she won't stand idly by. Together with the three jilted ex-girlfriends, they hatch a plan to teach John a lesson. Things rarely go as planned, especially when Kate starts to think that she might be falling for John herself.Written by
The idea of John Tucker wearing a thong was not in the original script. Originally, Kate talked him into shaving his head. Betty Thomas thought making him wear a thong was funnier. While shooting, the extras were actually taking pictures of him with their phones. See more »
When John is on the sideline waiting for Kate to agree to go out on a date with him, there is a defender within 3 feet, and John does not dribble within five seconds, thus making it a 5 second violation and a turnover. See more »
[Kate answers her door and it's Heather]
I want to bring down you know who.
[Kate answers her door again and it's Beth]
Normally, I'm opposed to the slaughter of animals, but in John Tucker's case, I'll make an exception.
[now in the house]
I don't even know him.
So, you don't even know anyone. You're like the Swiss, you're neutered.
Um, it's neutral. Kate, if the three of us tried this alone, we would kill each other. You brought us here. You showed us that we have something in common.

A little bit into the credits and there's a scene in Tokyo, Japan. There are three girls out by a fountain looking at their cell phones. Of course, the picture on the cell phone screen in John Tucker in thong. See more »
Today it was 100 degrees in New York City and frankly I went more for the air conditioning than the content, but this movie was much better than the trailer or the critics give it credit for. As solid as "Bring it On," it is definitely a notch above the average teen comedy; not quite "Mean Girls" but a good substitute. The girls are all terrific and Jesse Metcafe struts his acting and physique to an even higher standard than what he demonstrated on Desperate Housewives.
Filled with quite a few clever innuendos, it might make a few moms and dads cringe, but I guess kids today have heard worse. Also, it cleverly used remakes of classic songs for the bulk of its score.
