Customer Reviews

It is one of the best movies I have ever seen.
Super Pimp
It is not a 'little' movie, Gallen had a large budget and assembled a professional crew who shot a technically (camera-audio-direction) sound film.
Only-A-Child
Just because you parody other movies doesn't automatically make it funny.

Speaking as a long-time fan of teen movies, I was quite impressed by the scope and quality of this motion picture. I don't generally go for gross-out humor, but this film takes a slightly higher road than, say, Scary Movie, actually striving to encapsulate all of the bits and pieces of years of other movies into a coherent plot. Sure, there are a few aspects of real raunchiness included here, with two scenes in particular being pretty disgusting, but the movie never sunk to the level of becoming distasteful to my eyes. I also have to admire the verve with which the filmmakers went about their tasks; if you are going to do a full-fledged parody, I say don't hold back, and Not Another Teen Movie does not hold back at all, especially in terms of the language. This movie is brash and unafraid, and that is a real factor in its success.
I was amazed by the vast number of movies that found themselves ridiculed and incorporated into this film; I was expecting send-ups of teen comedies from the past ten years, but this movie draws heavily from a number of classic 80s films and even snatches a few things from 1970 classics such as Grease. Even a number of films I wouldn't consider teen movies (but which do feature teens) are pulled into this satirical universe - e.g., American Beauty. This could almost be a weakness because today's teens may be unfamiliar with a lot of the parodies involved in this production; having come of age in the 80s, I easily spotted the references to classics such as Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, etc., but I wonder how many of today's teens pick up on little things such as the name of the high school (John Hughes High), understand the origins of a character such as Ricky, or see the significance of the prom dress Janey Briggs wears.

I love this movie. This was one of the funniest movies that has come along in years. Raunchy and no holes barred humor that reminded me of the days when humor was limitless and UNCENSORED!!

So, last night when I saw that the UNRATED DVD was available, I pounced on it and watched it alongside the original DVD (on a seperate TV) to see what they added.

Well... they added quite a bit. About 10 minutes more. Yet, NONE of it deserved to be deemed UNRATED by any means. Just a couple of added scenes (nothing dirty or risky at all), and some extended scenes (again... nothing dirty or risky at all). Fluffy kinda scenes.

Actually... most were unimportant enough that they deserved to be cut from the original version.

BONUSES for buying the DVD... there are some new SPECIAL FEATURES... like 3 brand new behind the scenes featurettes that are kinda cool. Seeing the cast talk about the movie and seeing RON LESTER THIN!!!!! WHOA!!!

Chyler's bedroom dance and her party dance aren't even included anywhere. On the previous DVD it was in the deleted scenes... it wasn't in the movie and there are no deleted scenes on this edition.

Don't get me wrong. It's still the same movie + some. But the DVD as a package is probably one of the WEAKEST UNRATED CUTS of a movie I've ever seen... maybe it's because they left all the dirty stuff in the original cut that they didn't have anything dirty to put back in???

The movie is a 4 star movie.
This DVD is only 3 stars.

The beginning of this movie shines as a most daring over-the-top send-up of the high school flick genre. The daring reaches its zany peak with the collapsing potty parody. Then it's rather downhill from there. Perhaps that's inpart because what's being spoofed is already so preposterous that the spoof can't melodramatize it much farther. Still, I believe it could have done better. The ending was lame and uninspired. If one wanted to make a case that Molly Ringwald is washed up as an actress, one could find lots of support for that in her cliched ranting in her cameo toward the end.

Well, so far I've seen this twice, and it may grow on me some more. You gotta be a real teen movie buff to have "done your homework" enough to catch all the references. I guess the makers of this have seen all the movies it takes aim at. But I wonder if anyone else has. But the one movie it seems to zero in on most of all is SHE'S ALL THAT, which I'd have to see again to fully appreciate this. Too bad that's the only reason I've ever found to see SHE'S ALL THAT again. In fact, I'm wondering -- SHE'S ALL THAT was so silly, what if someone saw it AFTER seeing this? Could SHE'S ALL THAT look like a spoof of this instead? Other movies spoofed are with mixed results. The spoof of NEVER BEEN KISSED did nothing for me. I liked that movie but could still imagine an effective spoof of it, but this ain't it. On the other hand, they could have done more with BRING IT ON and I wish they had. A better cheerleader travesty is SUGAR AND SPICE. AMERICAN PIE is also spoofed ineffectively with an intended send-up of Nadia, that left me only missing the real Nadia. Some reviews are saying this spoofed also CAN'T HARDLY WAIT. But all I can remember of that uneven movie is Lauren Ambrose's surprise shining performance and I didn't catch anything in this to spoof that. For those totally uninhibited in their sense of humor, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE spoofs a short scene from DETROIT ROCK CITY. If they were going to take on that movie at all, I'm surprised they passed up the most hilarious part - the priest under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms. But on second thought, a scene so hilarious would be hard to contribute more humor to through a spoof, so maybe that explains it. Well there's a lot more that could be said, but as for me I'm ready to rush out to my video store to catch up on some of this movie's targets that I missed!
