Released on December 14, by Columbia Pictures , it is a parody of teen movies. In the stereotypical high school community of John Hughes High in Southern California , attractive Priscilla Jaime Pressly , a popular cheerleader , separates from her talented football star but slacker boyfriend, Jake Wyler Chris Evans. After Jake discovers that Priscilla is now dating timid and weird Les Riley Smith just to spite him, one of Jake's friends, Austin Eric Christian Olsen , makes a bet with him to turn Janey Briggs Chyler Leigh , a "uniquely rebellious girl", into the prom queen. Jake attempts to court Janey's love, but faces adversity from his own sister, Catherine Mia Kirshner , who is sexually attracted to him ; Janey's unnoticed admirer and best friend, Ricky Lipman Eric Jungmann ; and memories from his past football career. Catherine eventually assists her brother by slightly altering Janey's appearance by simply removing her glasses and ponytail , instantly making her drop dead gorgeous.

Sign in. Watch now. Title: Not Another Teen Movie A year after disposing of the body of a man they accidentally killed, a group of dumb teenagers are stalked by a bumbling serial killer. Six high school seniors decide to break into the Princeton Testing Center so they can steal the answers to their upcoming SAT tests and all get perfect scores. A woman looks back at the past nineteen men she's had relationships with in her life and wonders if one of them might be her one true love. Four teens are tricked by their professor into visiting a haunted house for a school project.
It was a story that — over 30 years — changed from solid to liquid to gas, all but vanishing. Hated by one generation as brutalizers, they were hailed by the next as the brutalized. In the series, these events are fictionalized, lightly but not trivially. With the license of imagination, it follows the boys as they turn to men, and opens interior spaces — personal torments, family turmoils, prison torture, the sustenance of odd friendships — to which daily journalism has little access, and in which it has scant interest. Few crimes leave permanent marks on anyone other than the people involved.
