An aspiring recording artist, Adam, is burned by a bad relationship experience and decides that if women won't respond to the "nice guy" then he'll be "the jerk."

The worst high school movie i've ever seen.
10 April 2009 | by chikkpeeSee all my reviews

This film has zero charm or wit (even for a teenage film). The director seems to lack a basic understanding of film conventions, character development and comic timing. The characters are bland and one dimensional.

This film is clearly aimed at the teenage market, but the lack of charm, lame and unbelievable characters and formulaic plot will fail to entertain anyone. Spare yourself and avoid this movie. There are plenty of teenage films that are much more fun.

  • Not to mention that this film implies that only one girl in a million isn't a crazy, clingy, bimbo.
