  1. Director Mick Jackson (L.A. Story) delivers playful and charming teens-turned-30 moxie.
  2. 25
    The movie, directed by Mick Jackson, leaves no cliché unturned, from the predictable plot to the characters straight out of central casting.

    Feels entirely a part of an already faded go-go era. Pic is too late by a mile and rightly dumped in a few theaters by Fox, which will doubtless send it to video bins faster than you can say gigabyte.
  4. It appears to have been modeled on the worst revenge-of-the-nerds clichés the filmmakers could dredge up.
