Here’s what we’ve heard about this film…

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: (from the producer) The irreverent Columbia Pictures comedy NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE shows no mercy as it skewers the conventions and cliches of the genre you hate to love. Join Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh), an aspiring artist who is outcast by her classmates for wearing glasses, a ponytail and paint-covered overalls; and Jake Wyler (Chris Evans), the all-American football star who makes a foolish bet to turn Janey into a prom queen, in a risque romp with an assortment of twisted takes on classic teen characters and teen movies. Recent movies such as AMERICAN PIE, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, She’s ALL THAT, CLUELESS, CAN’T HARDLY WAIT and much more are spoofed in this one.

Negative—What a terrible movie. am embarrassed to admit that I went.

Neutral—This movie was extremely offensive. However, I found myself laughing at the stupidity presented by every character in the flick. I noticed that 1 out of 10 people who went to this movie felt obligated to leave because it was so disgusting. Beware, this movie should be rated X. You will laugh and say “that’s disgusting” at the same time.

Negative—This movie is a putrid stench for the most part. I admit that some of the humor is funny, but how much sexual perversion must a movie have. Unfortunately, this movie accurately reflects what teens want and are about in these days. Putting humor together with this hell-bound attitude towards sex is exactly the thing that makes teens (and adults) feel comfortable about sinning and living that way, while disregarding the fact that God said this sort of behavior will send one to eternal torment (Gal 5:19-21). This movie is filthy and worthless.

—J.R., age 24
Negative—This film was horribly offensive from beginning to end. I cannot believe that Mr. T (a self confessed Christian) would have any part in this junk. I laughed maybe twice. The rest was not worth laughing at. It was crude and gross. Skip it.

Negative—Total and utter dirty bunkis. Skip this one and go see Vanilla Sky instead!
