It's, like, Shakespeare, man! This good-natured and likeable update of The Taming of the Shrew takes the basics of Shakespeare's farce about a surly wench and the man who tries to win her and transfers it to modern-day Padua High School. Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) is a sullen, forbidding riot grrrl who has a blistering word for everyone; her sunny younger sister Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) is poised for high school stardom. The problem: overprotective and paranoid Papa Stratford (a dryly funny Larry Miller) won't let Bianca date until boy-hating Kat does, which is to say never. When Bianca's pining suitor Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) gets wind of this, he hires the mysterious, brooding Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) to loosen Kat up. Of course, what starts out as a paying gig turns to true love as Patrick discovers that underneath her brittle exterior, Kat is a regular babe. The script, by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, is sitcom-funny with peppy one-liners and lots of smart teenspeak; however, its cleverness and imagination doesn't really extend beyond its characters' Renaissance names and occasional snippets of real Shakespearean dialogue. What makes the movie energetic and winning is the formula that helped make She's All That such a big hit: two high-wattage stars who look great and can really act. Ledger is a hunk of promise with a quick grin and charming Aussie accent, and Stiles mines Kat's bitterness and anger to depths usually unknown in teen films; her recitation of her English class sonnet (from which the film takes its title) is funny, heartbreaking, and hopelessly romantic. The imperious Allison Janney (Primary Colors) nearly steals the film as a no-nonsense guidance counselor secretly writing a trashy romance novel. --Mark Englehart ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nothing To Hate About This Movie
Teen movies. Some are good. Some are bad. I'm a big lover of the 80's teen movies, and can only bare a few of the modern day ones. This is one I really like. I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw this cute, charming movie. Joseph Gordon Levitt("3rd Rock From The Sun") plays Cameron. He has moved to Seattle and is the new kid in school. He quickly befriends a geek(David Krumholtz from "The Santa Clause"), who gives him the run down of the school and it's students. Cameron falls madly in love with Bianca Stratford(Larissa Oleynick, who, coincidentally, played his girlfriend for a while on "3rd Rock"). Bianca is a the quintessential popular, beloved, rich girl who is untouchable. Cameron makes it his mission to get to her. Then there is Bianca's sister Kat(Julia Stiles). She is the 'Anti-Bianca'. She is tough, sharp mouthed, and generally hates people. Their dad, who is played the always watchable Larry Miller, makes a deal with his daughters. Bianca can date as soon as Kat does. Bianca is upset because Kat doesn't want to date. This begins Cameron's mission. He and his friend enlist a tough, brooding guy named Patrick(Heath Ledger)to start wooing Kat, for cash, supplied by empty, pretty boy Joey(Andrew Keegan of "7th Heaven").If he succeeds, then Cameron can date Bianca. Naturally, things get complicated and awful before they can get better and work out for everyone involved. The film is based on William Shakespeare's "The Taming Of The Shrew". Julia Stiles was first noticed with this film. There is something so intoxicating about her. She has a special quality to her that is irresistable. Her smile is a wondrous thing. She is a star. The movie is very funny, and surprisingly funny in some ways. The dialogue is pretty clever, sharp, and well written. It is head and shoulders above most teen comedies of the last decade. The actors are all well suited for their roles and are enjoyable to watch. Larissa Oleynick is as cute as a bug. Allison Janney from "The West Wing" has a hilarious, but all too brief role as the school's guidance councelor who is in the middle of writing a trashy sex novel. David Leisure also appears as the gym teacher. It is unfair that this movie has to have the tag of "teen movie" attached to it. To some people, that equals poison. Especially in this day and age. I'm telling you right now people, this movie is better than that. This is enjoyable for any age. It's funny, cute, and has more depth and intelligence than most of these movies combined. If only all teen movies of this modern era could be as delightful as this one. There are many things to like about this movie, but the 10 things I love about this movie are:Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles, Julia Stiles. Sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worthy of being in the genre of 'teen'...
After continuous teen movies with a popular girl, the popular girl's clique, the jock who wants the girl, and the boys who help the jock get the popular girl, of course let's not forget the famous shocking prom night and a kiss before the credits (seems familar?), I think the young generation, or any generation for that matter, is a little exhausted from the usual routine. In this highly acclaimed 'teen' movie, influenced by the comedy Taming of the Shrew written by William Shakespeare, the routine is still on, but with a new and refreshing twist. With unfamiliar, yet talented new faces, this brand spankin' new cast is entertaining from beginning to end.
Newcomers Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger light up the screen as the potential couple who incidentally fall for each other. The stratford sisters live under strict rules stated by their strict, humorous father: Bianca, the younger, outgoing sister, cannot date until her older, anti-social sister Kat (with the perfect I-hate-the-world attitude) decides to date. As soon as Bianca attracts two fellow students, their plans on finding Kat a date lead to mishaps here and there. With witty dialogue and great music to go along with it, this movie is worthy of being in the genre of 'teen'. It's right up on the list with Sixteen Candles and Clueless.

5-0 out of 5 stars an amazing classic
the entire cast shines in this production of Shakespere's Taming of the Shrew. The jokes are amazing, and all the actors fit their parts well. Thanks in part to the USA network, this movie is ingained as a classic in countless teenagers' minds. I adore this film

5-0 out of 5 stars 10 Things I Hate About You
I found this teen film entertaining and fun. It totally relates to the highschool life. The over protective dad is very funny, the whole cast does a great job in playing out their roles. You would never guess its based on a novel by shakespear even though you see some shakespear love in the film!

Great film!

5-0 out of 5 stars Love is in the air.
Opposite sisters in one house equals trouble.

Bianca is your typical prep all into fashion and a hotsy tosty life. Kat is the quiet loner who finds more satifsication relaxing at home than going to any type of party or social gathering.

New kid comes along adoring over Bianca. His friend and him decide to make a plan to pair Kat with Patrick.

It's a hard trip to get Kat in a liking happy mood, much less to get her to a party that she must attend dually with her sister, or else. The girl's have to live with an overbearing father who takes good watch over his girls.

I grew up with this movie and it is a definate high school flick funny for anyone. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie.
I just saw this movie and it is one of the best teen movies I have seen in awhile. I really enjoyed American Pie, as this movie has many similarities to that one. The characters are all very interesting, including Rod who I found funny for some reason or another. The story is also very interesting to watch, as you have no clue as to who Matt will end up with in the end, I was suprised who it was. Overall, it was a very enjoyable movie. I am disapointed that this movie will not be released in theaters in the U.S. as it was in Europe though, it will lose a lot of publicity this way... Watch it.

2-0 out of 5 stars There is Almost a Good Movie Here
How do you rate a straight to video comedy? Do you compare it to the cinema greats? Do you compare it to the worst? Or do you try to compare it on its own merits? There is a reason films like 100 GIRLS are destined to find their way into the refuse bin at blockbuster. They just don't work.

That's not to say 100 GIRLS doesn't have merit. I think its heart is in the right place. It is attempting to take the old romantic comedy genre and turn it on its head. I'll bet there is even a better and yet unfilmable first draft of this film's screenplay out there somewhere, it would probably make a great read. Too bad it would never make a great movie.

100 GIRLS follows a young man named Matt (Jonathan Tucker, The Virgin Suicides) on a quest to find the girl of his dreams. He's met her already, in the elevator of the girl's dorm during a blackout. They laughed, they talked, and they even had sex. Now he's fallen in love, but she won't show her face. So he sets out to find her. There are a hundred girls to chose from but you as an audience member wind up meeting five or six.

The biggest problem is the tone of the movie. It's a literate drama destroyed by silly jokes. Matt pontificates (that's the only way I can explain it) likes Shakespeare and in the next the moment is acting like Charlie Chaplin. He'll say something completely sweet and good natured and then is called on to stand in front of a bunch of girls and scream `I want to full on kiss your Clitoris.' While the film intends it to be sentimental it's moments like that where you cringe.

Plus it forces Matt to be really creepy. He digs through panty drawers, spends a decent amount of time dressed as a girl, and the only other guy (James DeBello, Swimfan) he hangs around with dangles weights from his penis. Are all these women blind? Because for some reason they seems to like him and even fall in love with him. If I had been a girl, I ask the most important question, why the hell does this guy get to spend all his time in the girl's dorm? I'd probably complain.

You know what the biggest problem with Matt is he won't shut the hell up. I have a feeling if they told this story from the girls point of view they'd all be telling him to shut up. He's like that guy whom thinks he's so bright he forgets to listen to what's going on around him.

As for the girls we meet its Emmanuelle Chriqui (Detroit Rock City) who is the most enchanting. She plays Patty the slut with so much more vulnerability than the part deserves. She's got these amazing eyes and this adorable persona. When she's not on the screen you long for her to be there. It's just too bad there are 99 other girls. I kind of wished the film were told from her perspective, it would have been an interesting glimpse.

I do not recommend 100 Girls. But I don't hate it either. I'll bet writer/director Michael Davis (Eight Days A Week) had high hopes for this movie. There's a lot of hard work and love thrown into the picture. It's just too bad that the movie fails more times than it enchants. There is almost an okay movie here.

5-0 out of 5 stars ONE WORD..... GOLD!
This movie is like American Pie only cleaver! the dialogue is whitty and well thought out! It's definetly aimed at the male audience but can be appreciated by females alike. The main reason men should buy it though is.... 100 beautiful girls! Some of the actors include: Larisa Oleynik from 10 things I hate about you, Katherine Heigl (so sexy) from Under Seige 2 and My Father the Hero and my personal favourite Emmanuelle Chriqui... (drools) from On The Line and Snow day! Not just great eye candy though fantastic story, good laughs and a nice warm tingly finish! King of teen/ early 20's romantic comedies due to it's original nature... check it out!

2-0 out of 5 stars Tries too hard
It's ironic, but "100 Girls," about a guy trying to hook up (again) with the perfect girl falls flat because, like so many guys, it just tries too hard.

The premise is cute enough, and certainly no less plausible than most teen sex movies: After a romantic and erotic experience in an elevator during a blackout, a college student spends the rest of the year trying to track down that girl to reunite with her, somewhere in the 100 person all girls dormitory. Wacky hijinks ensue as the protagonist tries to figure out who the girl could be.

So far, so good. But the earnestness of the movie gets in the way. The protagonist himself is perhaps the most emasculated wimp ever recorded on videotape, prone to irritating (and wildly naive) speeches about male/female relationships that sound like the screenwriter didn't have anyone editing him -- or giving him a reality check.

He's contrasted with an over-the-top boorish roommate, who's supposed to be some sort of hyper-masculine stereotype, but who mostly comes off as someone in need of serious therapy. His opinions come off as someone trying to recreate the beliefs of someone like radio personality Tom Leykis without actually having listened to someone like that, much less having extracted the points with actual relevance. Instead, he just reinforces the Alpha Wimp's saccharine platitudes. The fact that neither of them turns in a particularly good acting performance further hinders matters.

The female characters (and actresses) almost salvage the film, and not just token "big name" Jamie Pressly. They gamely put forth a real effort to make a leaden script work, and pretend the wildly implausible situations aren't. But ultimately, they fail to elevate this above two stars (if they turned in a comparable job to the male leads, it would have been a single star film).

A renter at best, and only if you've thoroughly exhausted every other teen movie possibility.

1-0 out of 5 stars Intelligent??? Whatever...
This is seriously the worst movie I've had the displeasure of watching. This movie isn't like American Pie in the slightest. It's basically a teen movie that's had all its comedy sapped out of it and replaced with unrealistic stereotypes and various other BS. Throughout the movie the main character, Matt, as a result to his exposure to a large number of females has a sum of misandric epiphanies about sexuality and gender issues. He then takes it upon himself to preach to everyone he knows about his new found ideologies. Sounds a lot like Mel Gibson in "What Women Want" doesn't it? As usual, hypocrisy and male bashing ensues. After tons of "men are stupid" and "ha ha, you have a small/deformed penis" jokes, the movie has the gall to try to teach us that judging women by their looks is wrong (smell the hypocrisy?). Apparently the moral to this movie (because god forbid a comedy be made without an underlying moral these days) is that to find the love of your life you have to abandon your self esteem and every last shred of dignity and become a shameless lapdog (or dress up like a woman and go undercover).

Seriously, if you want to rent/buy this movie just to see some T&A, go get a real porn. At least real porn doesn't belittle you or liken your genitals to left over elbow skin. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A cute movie and a nice addition to your BSC collection!
This is a very nice and easy going movie that gives a great look at Ann Martin's classic book series. I have to agree that even though Schuyler Fisk is a good actress (she's Sissy Spacek's daughter) she just didn't capture the character and confidence that Kristy has in the book series. Kristy in the movie is whiny and unsure of herself and apologetic. Kristy in the book series is loud and bossy, ever-so-confident and headstrong.
However, the movie is a pleasure to watch over and over again. Rachel Leigh Cook shines as Mary Anne; quiet, reserved, and lovely. Plus Claudia, Dawn, and the rest of the club members were acted well. The movie is not just based on a single BSC book, but chooses to concentrate mainly on the relationship between Kristy and her Dad. She and the other club members also run a summer play camp, which they do many times in the book series, and it features true girl situations, from boys to bullies, from anger to laughter, from trouble with babies to cranky next door neighbors. The ending was cute and is the best part, definitely because Cokie gets what she deserves! For a BSC fan, this movie is very satisfying. Overall, a great movie that shows how fun true friends really are!!

4-0 out of 5 stars fun movie
I've always been a fan of the Baby-Sitters Club books and the video series, so I enjoyed seeing this movie. In this film, we find the group of girls starting a summer day camp for kids. Kristy is trying to cope with her estranged father's sudden return, Claudia fights to get through summer school, Stacey has a mad crush on a 17-year-old guy, Mary Anne faces challenges with the school snob who's trying to steal her boyfriend, and, most of all, all 7 of them struggle to get through trust issues and such so that they can remain friends. Overall, it's a pretty good movie--very entertaining and a fun film to watch if you're a fan of the books. However, there is one thing about this movie that I never liked ever since I saw it for the first time, and that's the casting of Schuyler Fisk as BSC President Kristy Thomas. In the movie, Kristy seems a little too cowardly and whiny, which is totally against her personality. I loved the girl who played Kristy in the video series. She showed the character as a tough and take-charge tomboy--just as she was meant to be. Schuyler Fisk did do a pretty good job in the role, but the personality of Kristy was completely changed. Other than that, it's a good movie. Fun for everyone. Get it now=)

Yes, the dialogue is corny, Mallory and Jessi get shafted (practically no lines for Jessi at all), and the tv series was much better. But this isn't a terrible movie either. I was a huge fan of the books as a kid, but hadn't seen this movie until my little sister rented it recently. I expected terrible acting, but Rachel Leigh Cook (of She's All That) really stands out as Mary Ann, and Larisa Oleynik (10 Thing I Hate About You, The Secret World of Alex Mack -what a great show!) and Schuyler Fisk (Orange County) do well too. Ellen Burstyn's appearance, while a bit random and very corny, is entertaining. The only one I wasn't impressed with was the actress playing Stacy. There's a whole lot going on in this movie, as each of the five older babysitters gets a least some subplot to herself, but it all ties together pretty well. There are some genuinely funny moments, and some more serious issues as well (Kristy deals with the reappearance of her deadbeat dad, who wants her to keep his presence a secret from her friends and family). While the movie will be most appreciated by younger girls, I think that people like me who grew up in the nineties will get a kick out of it too, with it's dated clothing, music (that awful rap scene!), pop-culture references, and of course, the babysitters themselves (and in their original form, great for those of us who remember the times before Dawn was replaced by Abby and similar blasphemous changes made).

Stacey looks through the telescope and sees Cluadia!U will be surprised by the great anding!

You'll love this movie. I used to be hooked on the BSC books years ago when I was in middle--and even the beginning of high school. I saw this movie the day it came to theaters. It involves Kristy's dad coming by and trying to be a part of Kristie's life..while she (and Maryann) try to keep it from her mom. The other bsc members get a little jealous that the two are so secretive but Maryann doesnt want to break their trust. Claudia is in a dilemma..if she doesnt pass her course in summer school...she will have to leave the bsc per her parents wishes. Stacey is involved with an older boy. Cokie Mason (yep shes in the movie!) is always in Maryann's hair and will stop at nothing to get Logan. All this and they still have to keep the kids under control at the summer camp the bsc has organized. And yes..you will find a lot of the kids mentioned in the books..ie..Karen, Suzy, Buddy, Nina, Rosie, etc.. You wont be disappointed. ... Read more

I was a huge fan of the books as a kid, but hadn't seen this movie until my little sister rented it recently. I expected terrible acting, but Rachel Leigh Cook (of She's All That) really stands out as Mary Ann, and Larisa Oleynik (10 Thing I Hate About You, The Secret World of Alex Mack -what a great show!) and Schuyler Fisk (Orange County) do well too. Ellen Burstyn's appearance, while a bit random and very corny, is entertaining. The only one I wasn't impressed with was the actress playing Stacy. There's a whole lot going on in this movie, as each of the five older babysitters gets a least some subplot to herself, but it all ties together pretty well. There are some genuinely funny moments, and some more serious issues as well (Kristy deals with the reappearance of her deadbeat dad, who wants her to keep his presence a secret from her friends and family). While the movie will be most appreciated by younger girls, I think that people like me who grew up in the nineties will get a kick out of it too, with it's dated clothing, music (that awful rap scene!), pop-culture references, and of course, the babysitters themselves (and in their original form, great for those of us who remember the times before Dawn was replaced by Abby and similar blasphemous changes made).

You'll love this movie. I used to be hooked on the BSC books years ago when I was in middle--and even the beginning of high school. I saw this movie the day it came to theaters. It involves Kristy's dad coming by and trying to be a part of Kristie's life..while she (and Maryann) try to keep it from her mom. The other bsc members get a little jealous that the two are so secretive but Maryann doesnt want to break their trust. Claudia is in a dilemma..if she doesnt pass her course in summer school...she will have to leave the bsc per her parents wishes. Stacey is involved with an older boy. Cokie Mason (yep shes in the movie!) is always in Maryann's hair and will stop at nothing to get Logan. All this and they still have to keep the kids under control at the summer camp the bsc has organized. And yes..you will find a lot of the kids mentioned in the books..ie..Karen, Suzy, Buddy, Nina, Rosie, etc.. You wont be disappointed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A cute movie and a nice addition to your BSC collection!
This is a very nice and easy going movie that gives a great look at Ann Martin's classic book series. I have to agree that even though Schuyler Fisk is a good actress (she's Sissy Spacek's daughter) she just didn't capture the character and confidence that Kristy has in the book series. Kristy in the movie is whiny and unsure of herself and apologetic. Kristy in the book series is loud and bossy, ever-so-confident and headstrong.
However, the movie is a pleasure to watch over and over again. Rachel Leigh Cook shines as Mary Anne; quiet, reserved, and lovely. Plus Claudia, Dawn, and the rest of the club members were acted well. The movie is not just based on a single BSC book, but chooses to concentrate mainly on the relationship between Kristy and her Dad. She and the other club members also run a summer play camp, which they do many times in the book series, and it features true girl situations, from boys to bullies, from anger to laughter, from trouble with babies to cranky next door neighbors. The ending was cute and is the best part, definitely because Cokie gets what she deserves! For a BSC fan, this movie is very satisfying. Overall, a great movie that shows how fun true friends really are!!

4-0 out of 5 stars fun movie
I've always been a fan of the Baby-Sitters Club books and the video series, so I enjoyed seeing this movie. In this film, we find the group of girls starting a summer day camp for kids. Kristy is trying to cope with her estranged father's sudden return, Claudia fights to get through summer school, Stacey has a mad crush on a 17-year-old guy, Mary Anne faces challenges with the school snob who's trying to steal her boyfriend, and, most of all, all 7 of them struggle to get through trust issues and such so that they can remain friends. Overall, it's a pretty good movie--very entertaining and a fun film to watch if you're a fan of the books. However, there is one thing about this movie that I never liked ever since I saw it for the first time, and that's the casting of Schuyler Fisk as BSC President Kristy Thomas. In the movie, Kristy seems a little too cowardly and whiny, which is totally against her personality. I loved the girl who played Kristy in the video series. She showed the character as a tough and take-charge tomboy--just as she was meant to be. Schuyler Fisk did do a pretty good job in the role, but the personality of Kristy was completely changed. Other than that, it's a good movie. Fun for everyone. Get it now=)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie.
I just saw this movie and it is one of the best teen movies I have seen in awhile. I really enjoyed American Pie, as this movie has many similarities to that one. The characters are all very interesting, including Rod who I found funny for some reason or another. The story is also very interesting to watch, as you have no clue as to who Matt will end up with in the end, I was suprised who it was. Overall, it was a very enjoyable movie. I am disapointed that this movie will not be released in theaters in the U.S. as it was in Europe though, it will lose a lot of publicity this way... Watch it.

2-0 out of 5 stars There is Almost a Good Movie Here
How do you rate a straight to video comedy? Do you compare it to the cinema greats? Do you compare it to the worst? Or do you try to compare it on its own merits? There is a reason films like 100 GIRLS are destined to find their way into the refuse bin at blockbuster. They just don't work.

That's not to say 100 GIRLS doesn't have merit. I think its heart is in the right place. It is attempting to take the old romantic comedy genre and turn it on its head. I'll bet there is even a better and yet unfilmable first draft of this film's screenplay out there somewhere, it would probably make a great read. Too bad it would never make a great movie.

100 GIRLS follows a young man named Matt (Jonathan Tucker, The Virgin Suicides) on a quest to find the girl of his dreams. He's met her already, in the elevator of the girl's dorm during a blackout. They laughed, they talked, and they even had sex. Now he's fallen in love, but she won't show her face. So he sets out to find her. There are a hundred girls to chose from but you as an audience member wind up meeting five or six.

The biggest problem is the tone of the movie. It's a literate drama destroyed by silly jokes. Matt pontificates (that's the only way I can explain it) likes Shakespeare and in the next the moment is acting like Charlie Chaplin. He'll say something completely sweet and good natured and then is called on to stand in front of a bunch of girls and scream `I want to full on kiss your Clitoris.' While the film intends it to be sentimental it's moments like that where you cringe.

Plus it forces Matt to be really creepy. He digs through panty drawers, spends a decent amount of time dressed as a girl, and the only other guy (James DeBello, Swimfan) he hangs around with dangles weights from his penis. Are all these women blind? Because for some reason they seems to like him and even fall in love with him. If I had been a girl, I ask the most important question, why the hell does this guy get to spend all his time in the girl's dorm? I'd probably complain.

You know what the biggest problem with Matt is he won't shut the hell up. I have a feeling if they told this story from the girls point of view they'd all be telling him to shut up. He's like that guy whom thinks he's so bright he forgets to listen to what's going on around him.

As for the girls we meet its Emmanuelle Chriqui (Detroit Rock City) who is the most enchanting. She plays Patty the slut with so much more vulnerability than the part deserves. She's got these amazing eyes and this adorable persona. When she's not on the screen you long for her to be there. It's just too bad there are 99 other girls. I kind of wished the film were told from her perspective, it would have been an interesting glimpse.

I do not recommend 100 Girls. But I don't hate it either. I'll bet writer/director Michael Davis (Eight Days A Week) had high hopes for this movie. There's a lot of hard work and love thrown into the picture. It's just too bad that the movie fails more times than it enchants. There is almost an okay movie here.

5-0 out of 5 stars ONE WORD..... GOLD!
This movie is like American Pie only cleaver! the dialogue is whitty and well thought out! It's definetly aimed at the male audience but can be appreciated by females alike. The main reason men should buy it though is.... 100 beautiful girls! Some of the actors include: Larisa Oleynik from 10 things I hate about you, Katherine Heigl (so sexy) from Under Seige 2 and My Father the Hero and my personal favourite Emmanuelle Chriqui... (drools) from On The Line and Snow day! Not just great eye candy though fantastic story, good laughs and a nice warm tingly finish! King of teen/ early 20's romantic comedies due to it's original nature... check it out!

2-0 out of 5 stars Tries too hard
It's ironic, but "100 Girls," about a guy trying to hook up (again) with the perfect girl falls flat because, like so many guys, it just tries too hard.

The premise is cute enough, and certainly no less plausible than most teen sex movies: After a romantic and erotic experience in an elevator during a blackout, a college student spends the rest of the year trying to track down that girl to reunite with her, somewhere in the 100 person all girls dormitory. Wacky hijinks ensue as the protagonist tries to figure out who the girl could be.

So far, so good. But the earnestness of the movie gets in the way. The protagonist himself is perhaps the most emasculated wimp ever recorded on videotape, prone to irritating (and wildly naive) speeches about male/female relationships that sound like the screenwriter didn't have anyone editing him -- or giving him a reality check.

He's contrasted with an over-the-top boorish roommate, who's supposed to be some sort of hyper-masculine stereotype, but who mostly comes off as someone in need of serious therapy. His opinions come off as someone trying to recreate the beliefs of someone like radio personality Tom Leykis without actually having listened to someone like that, much less having extracted the points with actual relevance. Instead, he just reinforces the Alpha Wimp's saccharine platitudes. The fact that neither of them turns in a particularly good acting performance further hinders matters.

The female characters (and actresses) almost salvage the film, and not just token "big name" Jamie Pressly. They gamely put forth a real effort to make a leaden script work, and pretend the wildly implausible situations aren't. But ultimately, they fail to elevate this above two stars (if they turned in a comparable job to the male leads, it would have been a single star film).

A renter at best, and only if you've thoroughly exhausted every other teen movie possibility.

1-0 out of 5 stars Intelligent??? Whatever...
This is seriously the worst movie I've had the displeasure of watching. This movie isn't like American Pie in the slightest. It's basically a teen movie that's had all its comedy sapped out of it and replaced with unrealistic stereotypes and various other BS. Throughout the movie the main character, Matt, as a result to his exposure to a large number of females has a sum of misandric epiphanies about sexuality and gender issues. He then takes it upon himself to preach to everyone he knows about his new found ideologies. Sounds a lot like Mel Gibson in "What Women Want" doesn't it? As usual, hypocrisy and male bashing ensues. After tons of "men are stupid" and "ha ha, you have a small/deformed penis" jokes, the movie has the gall to try to teach us that judging women by their looks is wrong (smell the hypocrisy?). Apparently the moral to this movie (because god forbid a comedy be made without an underlying moral these days) is that to find the love of your life you have to abandon your self esteem and every last shred of dignity and become a shameless lapdog (or dress up like a woman and go undercover).

Seriously, if you want to rent/buy this movie just to see some T&A, go get a real porn. At least real porn doesn't belittle you or liken your genitals to left over elbow skin. ... Read more
