Storyline

In the final days of her senior year Mandy Meyers is forced to change high schools when her father's business moves the family from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California. As attractive as she is intelligent, Mandy sees McDermott High as a chance to start fresh, have some fun, and try things she's never done before. On Mandy's first day of school, McDermott High's two prettiest yet cruelest seniors befriend Mandy and attempt to show her the wild side of Southern California high school life. Likewise, the entire male senior class has also taken notice of Mandy, and she's soon being chased by both an apathetic yet charismatic stoner, and a star football player. Written by Nathanael Coffman

Trivia

Jini Jacobs: [aggressively rushing up to Mandy at the school cafeteria] You penny whore! I can't believe you blatantly disobeyed my direct orders! You and Andy are going steady, like boyfriend and girlfriend... What are you thinking? Oh, and please tell me you didn't already fuck him - did you?
Mandy Meyers: What do you think I did with him, Jini?
Jini Jacobs: Oh, my fuckin' god! That's why you've been acting so weird lately!

The Bomb Date Movie!!!
5 March 2014 | by TommyDaCatSee all my reviews

This movie seems to strangely upset certain types of people, primarily the "haters" (ineffectual people who are jealous or fixate on the accomplishments of others who are much more worthy than themselves).

What's wrong with good looking girls, tons of drugs, and weird high school shenanigans? I mean this movie was a spitting reflection of what I just experienced back in the day.

I usually stray from teen films but man this one sure turned me on in the best way possible - and I'm pretty old for this kind of stuff. I'm giving it a 9/10 just because it's no Schindler's List but for what it sets out to do this movie is a scorcher.

Let me offer a piece of great advice. I'm personally a bit too old to rock this with my girls, but if you're in high school and likes to get super high and lose your virginity, this is the bomb date movie of all time! I mean it doesn't get any better if your a young buck want to "get your girl" to the next level. Trust me... it's a great icebreaker!

In summary, this movie knows how to press all the right buttons in all the wrong places. The BOMB!!!!!
