Storyline

Four high school friends plan to ride out their senior year taking easy classes, including a program for housing foreign exchange students and eventually all attending Ohio State. Hurdles befall each of the four: grades, higher aspirations, love. Is it the Foreign Exchange students that learn from their host or the hosts that do more of the learning? Written by danny roth

Long Larry: Well hell, I didn't recognize you without diapers on, buddy. You know, I got a warm spot in my heart for you. You see, my wife and I used to swing with your parents. I had my first man-on-man meat munch with your father, although, he did most of the munching, if you know what I mean.

Like a cheap and humorless version of Superbad
10 November 2017 | by areatwSee all my reviews

There's no shortage of teen comedies out there to choose from, too many in fact. Despite the occasional gem, this genre is renowned for mass producing crap. Movies like 'Foreign Exchange' are exactly why teen movies in general have such a bad reputation. It plays up to each and every negative stereotype of the genre.

This is basically just a bad rip-off of 2007's 'Superbad'. Its attempts at humour are much the same, only 'Foreign Exchange' lacks the characters and wit to pull most of the jokes off. The failed humour combined with the predictably crap and wafer thin plot make 'Foreign Exchange' another cheap teen comedy to avoid.
