Storyline

The continuing story of Ja'mie King, a conniving Year 12 student at Hillford Girls Grammar, a tony private school in Sydney, Australia. Ja'mie, the self-promoting "queen bee" of Summer Heights High, returns from an exchange semester at that public school for her last three months at Hillford, where she's the unchallenged diva among the school's most popular girls, as well as the school captain. After passing her school days cooing with fellow prefects and dissing the "boarders," Ja'mie turns her attention to conquering members of the opposite sex enrolled nearby at Kelton Boys Grammar. She also finds herself in a number of jams that incite the wrath of school officials and her parents. Her callous manipulations begin to wear thin as a few brave girls start to challenge Ja'mie's reign. But she'll stop at nothing to have the last word, emboldened by her hot-girl entourage. Clothes, cars, boys, parties ... Ja'mie has it all, and her overriding goal is to win the Hillford Medal. Written by HBO

Not Funny, Just Bizarre
29 November 2013 | by tawnminatorSee all my reviews

I don't get why a middle-aged man is playing the role of a teenage girl at a private girl's school and why this is supposed to be so hilarious. I could understand if this was a trans character with a teen boy playing a teen girl, but this old dude??

There's just something inherently not funny about an older man in drag attempting to act like a teen girl. Watching a middle-aged man in drag cutsie up to another middle-aged man playing "her" father and beg for cell phones and clothes is just plain bizarre.

Yuck is a word to describe the concept, the acting, the lines...everything.
