Not terrible, but this MTV teen movie falls flat.

A Great Movie

Don't be scared off by the MTV label. This is a great movie and is not the normal MTV stuff. It is much more appropriate than most. The 14+ rating is perfect.

Perfect plan but slips up

The movie was truly great though at certain points you really see that the funniest character in the movie does pot -- not good for anyone that doesn't know what drugs are. A few verbal references to sex, not an issue, you hardly notice. Be sure to watch the last ten minutes because that's when the message finaly comes in, believe it or not. The plan was impenetrable but then .. well I won't tell. Worth every single penny and will have you interested from begening to end. So I say about 12,13 would be good for a start.

Not as Bad As One Thinks

The plot isn't as superficial as other teen movies (Or adult ones for that matter). Yes, there is a character involved with drugs and they are cheating and breaking into a building. However, thinking kids will literally follow that example is taking it too far. There are other subtleties in the movie that go deeper than the teen mischief aspect. For example, all of the characters want a better future but feel trapped. Matty feels worthless without his girlfriend, Anna feels too much pressure being such a high achiever, Desemond doesn't want to go to the school his mother insists on and Roy, the one who takes drugs has hidden intelligence behind his addiction. Also, Francesca feels neglected by her father who owns the building they broke into. Each character brings deep questions such as "Is it healthy for Matty to base his worth off his girlfriend?" "Should Anna confide her feelings about being pressured?" "Does Roy have intelligence in him his addiction hides?" for example. Also, in the end, they don't end up cheating and take the test on their own merit. The movie overall has insightful themes to think about.

Stupid and Offensive

Some characters smoke drugs and steal tests. Inappropriate for kids under 14 years old. BAD MOVIE!
