At a Catholic high school, the popular girl teams up with a sophomore newspaper reporter to investigate a case of stolen SAT exams. Once the duo target their suspects, a larger conspiracy is unearthed.
High School. Four of the most important years of your life. But it isn't always dances and keg parties and sucking face in your parents' mini-van. Sometimes it's ugly and hard and complicated. As complicated as a conspiracy to overthrow the president. There's something rotten at St. Donovan's High and sophomore newspaper reporter Bobby Funke is on it like pink rubber bands on your little sister's braces. When senior hottie Francesca Facchini solicits Funke's help tracking down a set of stolen SATs, Funke uncovers a story dirtier than the lunch lady's mustache. After he fingers the school president (figuratively) for the crime, Funke becomes one of the most popular kids at St. Donovan's High. No longer known simply as the freshman who was once tied to a giant snowman penis, Funke wins the respect of everyone from the Desert-Storm-hero-turned-educator Principal Kirkpatrick to the kid that farts on him in Spanish class. When Francesca takes Funke to homecoming, even the in-school ...Written by

When Principal Jared explains the Arabic word "La Hariq" meaning, he says it means don't shoot, However it actually literally means "No Fire"; whereas don't shoot is either "Ma Titliq El Nar" or "Matedrabsh Nar" depending on the dialect spoken, considering he heard it near Tigris, the first variation would be more likely.

In the scene where Marlon and Bobby play beer pong versus Tad, the scene cuts back and forth between shots to show the two teams. The shots repeatedly show a full set of cups, as if the game hadn't started yet, despite showing multiple shots where both sides had drunk some of the cups, revealing editing errors. See more »
You want to know the truth about high school? You've got to break it down into its elements. Unfortunately, at St. Donovan's, the periodic table is more crooked than a case of scoliosis. Just give me the chance and I'll set it all straight. Case in point, Spanish homework. "Dame un batido de esperma" does not mean, "Take me to the airport." It means, "Give me a sperm milkshake." And 22 kids gave that as an answer in Spanish 3 last week. I'm not sure about the milkshake, ...

Reporter for the high school newspaper tries to find out who is behind the theft of some SAT exams and in the process discovers a greater conspiracy.
Knowing high school comedy/drama is a bit too knowing for my tastes. Its clearly set up to seem like its hip and cool but to me it seemed forced and false (perhaps it was done to cover the fact the film is derivative of other better school comedy dramas). It grated on me to the point that I stopped caring. It not a good sign when I got up and walked out and left the DVD running. I did come back and watch the film to the end but I never much cared.
I'm probably not the audience for this film. If you think you might be give it a shot, as for me I'll watch Heathers again.
