    The joke wears a bit thin and performances vary: this isn’t as slick as the teen movies it draws from, such as ‘Clueless’ and ‘Mean Girls’. But an original premise and earnest tone go a long way.

    The subject matter calls for ruthless observation, but his candy-colored pop vision has more in common with “Glee” than, say, “Heathers.” He’s aiming for a stinging WTF, but winds up with a fairly mild LOL.

    Until being young and gay is a nonissue for everyone everywhere, these kinds of stories will always have their place.

    Despite a premise with broad appeal and a script boasting plenty of laughs among its misfires, the high school fable falters.

    Finally got a chance to watch this after seeing how well it performed on rotten tomato, and I gotta admit it's a really funny movie! JustFinally got a chance to watch this after seeing how well it performed on rotten tomato, and I gotta admit it's a really funny movie! Just imagine John Hughes directing a movie with a gay protagonist. The writing is really fresh, giving a fun satire on high school culture and how gay kids are often viewed. It's a very exaggerated universe and the actors pull off the comedy very well, especially Xosha Roquemore who I've only seen in a small part in Precious but she is a great comedian (and sexy to boot). I hope more people get a chance to see this through word of mouth. Full Review »

The cast inject bags of energy in to the proceedings and the production is certainly colourful, in every sense of he word. To get the most out of the screenplay it is imperative that you have an understanding of teen/gay jargon. If you don't the film just doesn't play. If you do you may very well love it. Full Review »

    You know? It was actually a really funny movie. Yeah, you can feel the cliché and all that.
    Pretty good actually.
