User Reviews

I had trouble telling if this movie is extremely tongue in cheek or atrociously bad.
25 December 2012 | by jfsoccSee all my reviews

Poe's law, named after its author Nathan Poe, is an Internet adage reflecting the idea that without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between sincere extremism and an exaggerated parody of extremism.(Wikipedia)

Much the same way, I had trouble telling if this movie is extremely tongue in cheek or atrociously bad. Every teen movie cliché is there. from the "Hey kids, this is your culture AMIRITE?" that this entire piece screams at me, to the formulaic plot.

You'll have no trouble following the plot.

I had a terribly good time, groaning at every obvious line, every absurd piece of jargon and every obvious turn. If you don't go into this movie with your mind set on zero you might enjoy it less.
