Not Another Teen Movie
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.
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.
Hard to believe that's Chris Evans starring. Still pretty decent and spot on.
This film is a fucking masterpiece.

Silly, crude, juvenile, but I liked this more than I thought I would. Definitely one of the better spoofs. Great soundtrack too.
Is it stupid? Hell yeah. But It's hilarious, it's quotable, and it's aged the best out of all the spoof films of the early 2000s.
what was i even expecting
"THE" Movie that modern spoofs today, especially direct to Dvd ones, try to duplicate but fail miserably at. It's not the smartest and even most clever movie out there, but theres so much to laugh at. It could just be because I've watched a lot of the movies they are spoofing, so I understand those tongue-in-cheek references. But even without having watched these type of movies, theres lots to enjoy here no matter how silly it gets.
This is really hilarious and I'm not just saying that because Chris Evans is in it.
This is the best movie of all time.
