Reviewed by: Dare Devil Kid (DDK)

Rating: 3.2/5 stars

A quirky comedy, which is quite hilarious in parts, and breezy in others when it doesn't be hilarious. Tim Garrick and Scott Russell's script throws in all the naughty elements for a typical teen comedy, which can take give viewers a nostalgic throwback on some of the fun times during their school and college days.

Garrick also doubles up as the Director, and he handles the material with just the right kind of nonchalance and spice needed to execute a silly, American sex comedy about young adults discovering adventurous things in life and encountering trouble along the way.

Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez just about past muster as the leads, but it's the supporting cast -boasting a string of noted movie and TV personalities - from Mary-Louise Parker, to Elisabeth Shue, Heather Graham, Patrick Warburton, and Dylan McDermott who really throw their weight into the proceedings to elevate what could have been an average, done-to-death teen, sex comedy. By the end of it all, you'll end up quite enjoying "Behaving Badly", and actually be glad that you chanced upon this little known, comedy romp.
