Did I miss something?
21 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Apparently the makers of this movie did... actually they missed several things.

This movie is basically a mass of stereotypes. They're ALL there... let's run through it, shall we? First, you have the obligatory waste-of-time opening sequence. This is the part that might as well have had a red caution sign flashing that said, WARNING: this movie sucks. Get out of here and save yourself the trouble.

Next, you have the "too-badass for class antagonist." I believe I saw this kind of character in "You Got Served." (Another cinematic turd.) Then there's the chick on campus that takes a shine to the main dude, but turns on him once he screws up and does/says something stupid.

And finally, the fact that there's almost no good dialogue, and no comedy to flesh it out.

If you're going to make a movie, take these things into account... it'll help.

And now, for the verdict: this movie is a 1 out of 10.

By the way, this is based on the fact that I actually saw it... I'm not racist in any sense of the word.
