    Sweet and kind of touching, and I liked it. The difference, I think, is that the new one is lower on cynicism and higher on wisdom, and might actually contain some truth about the agonies of high school insecurity.
  2. Often rowdy and uproarious, the film also has surprising depth and subtext.
  3. Director Troy Beyer, who adapted the original screenplay, can't seem to decide if this is a morality play or a music-video fantasy.
  4. Sadly, though, the movie as a whole feels blatantly dedicated to fleecin' da kidz.
  5. Looks mostly like the same-old, same-old.

    All the money in the world couldn't have saved actress-turned-filmmaker Troy Beyer's lewd, obnoxious, product placement-laden remake of the sweet and simple romantic comedy "Can't Buy Me Love."

    A sexed-up Afterschool Special pretty much guaranteed to render audiences comatose.
