  • Summary: This irreverent comedy shows no mercy as it skewers the conventions and cliches of the genre you hate to love. (Columbia Pictures)

    A clever satire that's layered like a breakfast club sandwich with sly in-jokes, sight gags, gross-out scenes, and, of course, requisite bathroom humor.
  2. A happy, nasty and frequently hilarious assault on 20 years' worth of youth pictures.

    Though it isn't so much funny as clever, the parody will hopefully discourage some aspiring teen-movie makers from doing the same old thing.
  4. Toomuch of the humor in Not Another Teen Movie is either lame (the school in the movie is called "John Hughes High") or lamely disgusting.

    By the time a member of teen-movie royalty makes a cameo in the film's finale, Not Another Teen Movie has long exhausted any hope of succeeding. Instead it becomes, well, just another teen movie.

    That's not to say there aren't funny moments here. There are. Two, maybe three of them. But unless you're a hearty 14-year-old -- who of course is not supposed to be seeing this R-rated movie -- it's hardly worth fishing them out of the potty humor and repulsive sex talk.
  7. It took five men to concoct the hackneyed plot and conceive the brainless jokes that constitute Not Another Teen Movie, meaning there are five men in Los Angeles right now still trying to wash that stink off their soft, idle hands.

    I've only seen a handful of the movies that this parodies, yet still find this one of the most funny and repayable stupid comedies out there. No American Pie morality, no underlying sub-plots, just pure stupid jokes, crammed in T&A and the odd offensive gag in there to add the slight edge here (although that is very underplayed). I absolutely love this film and the way it drags cheesy yank rom-coms down to the level of us every-day Joe's. A classic. Expand

    Going into this movie you have to learn not to take it too seriously. It's a parody of teen movies and is hilarious at parts but overall it still felt like just any other teen movie. I will give it a 58.5 out of 100. Expand

    The movie is surprisingly funny in the first half but begins to drift and a little after awhile. In the end, with a film like this, I was shocked how it wasn't all that bad. Expand

    It advertise itself like a spoof of the modern spoof movie like the Suckerberg movies, yet they seem to understand the spoof genre as much as all the other spoofs. Very unfunny and horribly written. Expand
