After falling victim to a humiliating prank by the high school queen bee, Jodi (Victoria Justice) and her best friend Mindy (Eden Sher) plot their revenge by uniting all of the school's outcasts to overthrow the cruel reign of the popular clique once and for all. But in a tale of "be careful what you wish for," a taste of power gets the best of all of them, nearly ruining Jodi and Mindy's friendship and threatening to sabotage Jodi's budding romance with Dave (Avan Jogia). A relatable journey about finding where you belong in a world where you're hastily defined by your peers, THE OUTCASTS turns the teenage experience upside-down with humor, wit, empathy, and a lot of fun.

Sugar: You think you skinny anaemic fanboys have a monopoly on the one fictional genre where women and people of colour get to exist outside of backward social norms of traditional confinement, not to mention a genre that is largely premised on the idea that is the inevitable outcome of the current systems of patriarchal excess? Idiot!

I thought this movie was underrated. It was a super cute and enjoyable flick. Maybe not the makings of a classic, but still really fun.
