Quirky, funny, good looking actors, and the theater I was in was completely sold out with ages 17 - 25 or so (movie is rated R), all very young. The movie sends a great message to kids that says, even if others don't like it or Quirky, funny, good looking actors, and the theater I was in was completely sold out with ages 17 - 25 or so (movie is rated R), all very young. The movie sends a great message to kids that says, even if others don't like it or don't appreciate it, you should just "be who you are." Unless your gay, that is. This movie sends a powerful and consistent "sub-message" as a major component of its humor that everyone should be wary and vigilant of anything that smacks of homosexuality. The movie includes full-volume use of the word "faggot" in its most pejorative sense (equivalent to the "N" word amongst gay and lesbian people, by the way). Several of its characters offer repeated expressions of concern that one or another of the kids in the movie might be gay, along with a showing of great relief that this concern is eventually resolved as unfounded. This movie's homophobic foundation sends a pretty awful message to the clearly sought-after young people, both straight and gay, that make up this movie's prime market. The writers and producers of this movie need a lot of enlightenment here, as do its hip adult and kid actors who are complicit in sending that message. The unabashed homophobia thoroughly woven into its plot structure is a disgraceful mark against this movie. Expand
