Not Another Teen Movie

Not Another Teen Movie

Not Another Teen Movie is just that: Not funny, Not entertaining and most importantly Not worth the price of admission.

Were it not for two jokes that actually worked, Not Another Teen Movie would have surely deserved an F.  In its feeble attempt to parody many of the Freddie Prinze Jr. / Kirsten Dunst style of films, NATM (it's not worth spelling out again) shows that being gross is Not always funny.  This film is reminiscent of Freddy Got Fingered and is almost as bad.

Starring Chyler Leigh, Jaime Pressly, Chris Evans, Mia Kirshner, Randy Quaid, Ed Lauter and Cerina Vincent with cameos by Mr. T and Molly Ringwald, NATM jabs at The Breakfast Club, Bring It On, She's All That and a number of other films without ever having a plot, consistent characters or, most sadly, humor.

The only bright spots of the film (and believe me they could easily be hidden by a seven watt night light) were Molly Ringwald and the naked exchange student.  Neither of these are remarkable, but you will laugh.  Near misses in the laugh department are the references to Cruel Intentions with the girl/girl kiss coming between a 60+ woman and a teen with more saliva that you or I can produce in a month; Randy Quaid as a drunk veteran reprising his role of the Vacation flicks; and the biggest miss is the cheerleader with Tourette's Syndrome that gets less than two minutes of screen time - big mistake - that could have been a great running gag.

If you do decide to endure this 85 minutes of insult to films in general, bring a vomit bag and a pillow; you'll likely need either one or both.
