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.
This is technically a masterpiece and I'll fight anyone who disagrees
Compared to similar parodies movies in the past decade or so, this is a god-damn masterpiece. Extremely funny, even if it isn't exactly "smart". But then again, I really hope you don't go into this expecting an intelligent movie.
Oh, and I died at all the American Beauty gags and the musical number as well. Too funny.
As a near-sighted person I hate the trope of someone getting a makeover where they just get rid of their glasses like it's nothing, because guess what dipshits, glasses actually serve a practical purpose and you can't ditch them just like that. All I really wanted from this movie was for the uniquely rebellious girl to be blind as a bat after her makeover and get into embarrassing hijinks because of it. Movie did not deliver on that front and I'm a little alarmed at just how disappointed and hurt I am by that. Seriously, what an appalling missed opportunity! Just replace the collapsing stairwell gag with her slipping because she can't see shit, or something! Anything! Boooo!
A True Masterpiece
A parody of many late 90's films (most especially one of my personal favorites "She's All That) which were considerably bad but enjoyable. NATM was a shitty movie that some might forgive mainly because of that iconic Chris Evans scene. It was a sweet feast for the eyes.
you know what
I've loved this movie since I was 10 years old
and still do. It's hilarious and underrated in my opinion. Parody movies wish they could be this good.
Because I laughed
It's still a never ending source of surprise for me how much I know about American High Schools (or seem to know) and how many American High School movies I've actually seen. So many apparently, that I had no problem recognizing most of the films this one spoofs.
It's not as clever as it thinks it is but also not as silly as it looks. There are some laugh out moments and funny bits about the conventions of teenie movies and then there is the rest with sex jokes and gags about bodily functions.
Anyways, what I took away from this is that Eric Christian Olsen has an incredibly old-fashioned face (you know, faces that you could totally see in old photographs? Look at him in this film and tell me he couldn't be straight from the 50s)!
I'm suddenly craving a banana split.
Mitch: Getting pussy, no matter what.
Bruce: Even if it with dirty slut.
Ox: True love is what I want the most.
Fat Short Order Cook: I just jerked off in your French toast.

Sandy Sue: Give me an 'H'. Give me a 'U'. Give me a - giant pussy-licking, ass-fucker cock shit.
[the other cheerleaders are disturbed]
Sandy Sue: I'm sorry. That was my Tourette's.
Amanda: Do you think I sleep with every guy who writes me a letter? No. I give them hand jobs.
This grade is no joke. Actually quite clever and funny.
