  1. A Jekyll-and-Hyde teen comedy that sounds like a Pauly Shore reject, but Qualls moves his marionette body around with a true clown's effervescence, and he does rubber-faced parodies of youth cool that are just what youth cool deserves.
  2. 50
    It makes little sense, fails as often as it succeeds, and yet is not hateful and is sometimes quite cheerfully original.
  3. Uneven but occasionally hilarious teen comedy.
  4. 40
    A comedy just funny enough to make viewers wish it were far funnier.
  5. It isn't very good, but it doesn’t seem to care, which turns out to be rather refreshing.
  6. 40
    A bad-taste comedy with a heart.

It's just dumb but i do applaud it for it's over-the-topness, it's like a dumb comic book made into a movie. Full Review »

It's not the funniest movie in the world, but it does make you laugh. I'm a sucker for good cameos, and this movie is chock full of them. My biggest complaint is the scene where the actors are miming to a funk song, and it shows the guitar pretend playing the bassline. Other than that, it is totally worth a watch. Full Review »

    Sure this movie was a huge laugh out loud but it was so stupid so I have to give it a big flat old zero.
