They served you Breakfast. They gave you Pie. Now we’re gonna stuff your face.
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.
Mr. T makes me laugh so damn hard in this.
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.
The teen movie genre has always been an unusual beast of at times laugh out loud, gross out comedy and romantic, life affirming schmaltz, with the occasional witty undercurrent of bite. Not Another Teen Movie, in attempting to spoof a great many of those styles and invert the tropes of a very specific genre, has something of a difficult task. Providing pastiche when it comes to earnest, dated John Hughes movies is one thing, but how do you really mock a genuinely funny movie like American Pie without looking a touch desperate? Joel Gallen's movie doesn't quite have the answer to that and while it reaches for the lofty, Zucker brothers style of slapstick, visual gags and silly wordplay, it…
La recordaba muy divertida, pero es que también es muy, muy buena. De hecho, es un spoof a la altura del mismísimo Airplane!
Macarra, cerda, desternillante y con un amor y un respeto por el punto de partida que emociona.
Tres palabras: Harry Dean STADIUM.
great concept. terrible execution.
Some good gags, but mainly in the background, occasional insight into teen movies. The main issue is that She's All That, which provides the structure, is so easy to mock that these jabs feel weak.
It had some okay moments, but mostly I really didn't like it.
Also, disgusting doesn't equal funny. At least not to me.
Funny without being completely stupid or over the top. It's also quite great to see Chris Evans as a youngin. There's not much else to say about this movie. Quite a few laughs.
Still surprised that this is actually funny
This became exhausting to get through by the end... So much worse than I remember.
