detention to watch it
9 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely terrible, now I love movies like this usually so I was excited to watch it. This movie never seemed to get to the point adding in a huge amount of random things they really didn't need to "entertain" the viewer, the plot isn't even clear as the movie fades away to a ton of different mini stories confusing the viewer to the point that it becomes hard to watch along with its terrible sense of humor with jokes about fashion and over exaggerated stereotypes of teenagers with a cliché cast this is probably the worst comedy movie I've ever seen. Please save yourself from watching this piece of garbage, but if you have 93 minutes to spare you can have yourself a "Detention".
