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

Quotes

Mandy Meyers: [approaches Andy, who's sitting under a tree reading a book] Hey.
Andy Wasilewski: Hey, what's up?
Mandy Meyers: What are you doing here so late? It's kind of strange seeing you here 50 minutes after the last bell... with a book.
Andy Wasilewski: Who says there's no surprises anymore? All you got to do is break some rules.
Mandy Meyers: That's a very liberating thought... but if you break too many rules you wind up in jail.
Andy Wasilewski: If we're not in jail already... where the fuck are we?

Terrible movie
6 February 2014 | by themadzak-887-156777See all my reviews

There are two people that rated this movie 10 out of 10 stars. The only explanation for that rating is that those people (or that person with two separate ID's) have a vested interest in the movie. They gain something if people watch the movie.

I watched the first 20 minutes of the movie, and couldn't figure out if this movie was a satire like "Scary Movie" or if it was being played straight up. I came to IMDb to read some reviews to find out.

This movie is not a satirical take on a high school teen movie. The viewer is supposed to believe that the characters in the movie are portraying realistic people. However, the world the writer creates is so far from reality that it actually confuses the viewer as to what kind of movie this is.

For example, in the beginning of the movie, the popular girl in school arrives late to class, uses the f word to her teacher multiple times, and calls him a name in front of the class. The teacher does nothing. Seriously. Name me one high school in the nation where a student can call a teacher "Mr. S--t for brains" in front of an entire class and not get in trouble for it.

The characters in the movie are so incredibly unrealistic that I thought it was satire. That's how bad the beginning of this movie is. I say "the beginning" because I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes.
