Storyline

A spoof of typical 1980's teen movies. The idea is that VH1 found a "long-lost", never-released teen film made in the 1980's and decided to air it now in 2006; thus it is loaded with the typical formula, clichés, bad fashions, and stereotypical characters found in those movies and makes fun of them.

A desperate attempt to be witty.
6 November 2006 | by polkadotprudeSee all my reviews

I've just watched this movie on TV, and it seems to me a sad attempt at pointing fun at the 80's, but fails miserable.

"Not Another Teen Movie" wasn't amazing, but at least it nailed the bad 90's teen movies and put some humor into it.

This movie is about a brother,Charlie, (Mikey Day) and sister ,Lori, (Dominique Swain) who move to a new town in California from Pittsburg. The sister loves to dance and trained as a ballerina, so naturally she's crushed when she discovers she can't dance in this new town. The guy is ranked bottom of his senior class in 'coolness' on his first day and makes some feeble attempts to "rise against the cool people."

There's the unattainable hot chick, the jerky popular guy who makes no sense and the freaks. There's also Charlie's best 'freak friend', Billie (Nicki Clyne), who has a hopefully crush on him and can't admit it (Sixteen Candles right there).

The movie progresses with bad references to "Dirty Dancing", "Teen Wolf" and the like.

I won't give away anymore, but I wouldn't recommend this movie unless it's 3am and nothing else but infomercials are on.

It's not nearly stupid enough to be considered "so stupid it's funny" and it's not interesting enough to have any sort of cult following.

(And then there's the creepy janitor (who's an ex-dancer) and the principal who doesn't give a hoot.)
