A good movie may often begin with stereotypes and turn them into characters, the way “Rocky Horror” did. However, this movie makes the mistakes of taking five characters and turning them into stereotypes. It fails dismally.
I can’t understand any person liking this movie, unless it is a woman. Women do like this, since the males are stereotyped the worst. Mechanics will like it, too, since the hero is a mechanical type, and all studious types and jocks are treated with contempt.
It is obviously told from the point of view of the one played by the tall, dark haired, good looking guy. The others are all wimps next to him, and he wins all arguments. He is always in the right, and he stereotypes all his classmates. This wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for him being so spoiled, having everything he could want.
I know only a few people who could have been stereotyped into categories. Most people were multi-purpose. This is one of the worst movies of all time.
