Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated PG-13 for crude and suggestive material, partying, and language
Fun Size- *1/2 (out of four): There are more laughs and more fun in an episode of “Victorious” than in this farce of a film, which would have fared better had it been released straight to DVD. It is crudely written, the teenage qualms seem entirely artificial and clichéd. There are some funny and even sweet moments in it, but the bad outweighs the good here. It tries to pay homage to older (and better) teen flicks of the ’80s, but it falls far short, emerging as little more than a comedy full of gags and stereotypical characters. It might be enjoyable for a small minority of people, but I’m sure most will be quite bored by it. Definitely one to skip.
