What did I just watch?

It starts out with a montage because I guess writing an intro was too much for them. And I'm sick of writers that can't write normal believable dialogue. By the time a normal scene started they went into another music montage. It reminded me of another "teen" movie, "Eight Grade" which was one music montage after another and a total mess. Normally you have one music montage in a film. This had 20.

The acting was so over the top and essentially broke the fourth wall. The red head kid (Luke Spencer Roberts) stole the show.

The story, if you can call it that, made no sense. Two girls, one who is dating the guy who used to date the other girl become "best friends." Why?

This is what happens when your script only has enough interesting material for about 15-20 min and you fill the rest of the film with music. Maybe they should have explored the lesbian potential, because the way it is now, it stinks. And there was so much underlying lesbian tension anyway they should have gone there because it felt like it was just a long tease. The Nick story was just so irrelevant and uninteresting. And the Ben story even worse.

Couple that the fact that 30-year-old are playing 17-18-year-olds.

You can skip this.
