On a bet, a gridiron hero at John Hughes High School sets out to turn a bespectacled plain Jane into a beautiful and popular prom queen in this outrageous send-up of the teen movies of the 1980s and '90s.
I absolutely did not like _Not Another Teen Movie_, but even I have to give it props for how it absolutely disassembled everything in the genre up to the point of its creation, and absolutely set the tone for everything in the genre that came after it. That doesn't stop it from being crass in the worst possible way, or completely uncomfortable. Or completely unoriginal... although I guess you could argue that part is by necessity... Look, what I'm saying is, credit where credit's due. It's like, fuck _Transformers_, what a garbage bunch of films those are, but at the same time, it's hard to knock a billion dollar gross earning. _Final rating:★★ - Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal_.
