You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
On a bet, a gridiron hero at John Hughes High School sets out to turn a bespectacled plain Jane into a beautiful and popular prom queen in this outrageous send-up of the teen movie genre.
The last 10 years have seen Chris Evans become one of the most famous movie stars in the world, but the ungodly box office success he’s enjoyed as a cog in the Marvel machine amounts to little more than a gilded consolation prize for a career that peaked as it soon as it began. Fortunately for Evans, he doesn’t seem to know that.
In a recent interview with the Wrap, Evans was asked to reflect on Not Another Teen Movie, the 2001 comedy that provided his big break. Self-deprecating but careful not to sound ungrateful, Evans laughed at the thought of his first leading role: “The movie had me stick a banana in my ass, it wasn’t exactly some highbrow…
I continue to say this is one of the best parodies ever. I will forever fight for this movie to be recognized as a masterpiece.
not as much a parody of teen movies as it is a perverse love letter (and pre-emptive obituary) to teen movies/parody of the america that worships them, the idea that this is sneering condescension is kind of cancelled out by the fact that one would have to see and love at least 25 different teen rom-coms over & over again to understand all the jokes. happy to report that the thick nostalgia of 2001-ness this is steeped in has made it so much better - sillier but also bittersweet. an important piece of cultural history and still one of the most brilliantly idiotic and rewatchable movies ever made.
Mr. T makes me laugh so damn hard in this.
I read an interesting review from David Ehlrich a while back calling Not Another Teen Movie a masterpiece. I thought it was pretty interesting, but it faded from my mind until I was scrolling through HBO GO earlier and this film was in their catalogue.
First of all, the writing here is impeccable. It goes where every high school/teen movie had gone before, but maximizes and blows it up to the extreme. As Ehlrich put it, and I may be paraphrasing, subtext becomes, text, and text becomes a giant neon sign.
Another thing that sets this apart from the Starving Games and Scary Movies of the world is that this doesn't just make fun of the films it's spoofing, it…
This is technically a masterpiece and I'll fight anyone who disagrees
rewatched this purely to indulge in vintage chyler leigh and honestly i forgot how much i love this film
shoutout to molly ringwald for existing and to mia kirshner whose catherine was better than sarah michelle gellar's kathryn
A funny parody of the teen romcom/coming of age movies that were prevalent in the 80s/90s, even after 15 years this hasn't lost any of its charm.
Captain America falls in love with Alex Danvers after giving her a makeover and all the other cliches you can think of.
If only Chris Evans would re-enact the whipped cream scene now he's older and sexier.
Not even guilty, it's just a pleasure.
Not Another Teen Movie is funnier and has aged far better than Scary Movie and others of its ilk.
It suffers from a disjointed narrative like most parody movies and gets a little too OTT in places, at least to my tastes. The mockery hits its mark more times than it doesn't, however, and the cast is remarkably game, especially Chyler Leigh, Mia Kirshner, and Jaime Pressly.
The critics were rather unfair to this one in my opinion - this is not high art nor does it attempt to be. It's good for a watch if you're looking for something silly and have a love/hate relationship with '80s and '90s high school movies.
She's right... maybe you should get on that plane to Paris. Cause if you stay, we really only have the summer, then I go to college and we'll talk on the phone and spend the occasional weekend together which is nice. But chances are one night I'm gonna get wrecked and have unprotected sex with some girl in my dorm. You'll find her thong and call me a slut... I'll call you a cock-tease and we'll break up. So when you really think about it, what's the point?
What's the point! That line right there is the reason this movie gets 2 stars instead of one. Now NATM is still pretty bad (not awful, more bad in that fun…
Spoofing twenty years worth of high school movies and teen sex comedies sounds like fish in a barrel, so I can't really fault anybody for taking exactly that approach.
I always figured this was one of those Shart Movie movies, but it's not by Seltzberg and seems to enjoy a better reputation. To its credit, it doesn't just take a thing that happened in a movie and point at it, it takes care to craft gags, lots of 'em.
As you'd expect with even a good movie like this, most of them don't land. Some do, but most of them are pretty obvious and kinda hang there waiting for the next gag to come along, and one does soon enough.…
a must see
actually pretty funny. it rips the stereotypes that teen movies have and actually does it pretty well.
Viewed on Shomi
Teen movies get the parody treatment in Not Another Teen Movie with very mixed results.
Parody films rarely work simply because one must know which movie is being parodied at any given moment.
I had heard from many people before saying that this is a very funny movie and while the film does have some funny moments, the film ends up being as ineffective as some of the films it is mocking or homaging.
Also, any amount of Good Charlotte only hurts a movie.
