I am actually considering buying this on DVD. The extras that I viewed were fun and I bet the commentary tracks are fun and informative as well might even allow me to pick up a couple of references I missed in the first couple of viewings. Some hate it, some love it. Then again, what do I know? And that is reflected by the reviews. As a matter of fact, I can't recall that any extras were included. That said, I found myself chuckling or even laughing out loud several times. The perky Foreign Exchange student was cool, and sexy to watch.
The teen movies they go after do not lend themselves to this treatment 'Can't Hardly Wait' is already satirical. I'm hoping noone will come up with an idea for a parody of parody movies!
It was great to see the "Breakfast Club" detention spoof with Paul Gleason, the principal in the original movie. One of the running gags involves a hard-bodied foreign exchange student who parades around in her birthday suit.
The orginal DVD included a dozen of the worse misses as deleted scenes and the extended cut simply moves this back into the actual movie which would have been better if about 50 of the included scenes had made the deleted category. If you can willingly suspend disbelief at this shameless exploitation and creative bankrupcy, then this movie is for you. She is unfortunately only in the film a couple of times, and briefly. Verified Purchase. It is not a 'little' movie, Gallen had a large budget and assembled a professional crew who shot a technically camera-audio-direction sound film.
The kid who recreated the Judd Nelson role was dead-on. Aside from the camera, audio, and wardrobe people it is a career breaker. I guess because the nudity is "gratuitous". You know the foreign exchange student is going to get naked in the picture and the director found an interesting way to show that by the way, whoever she is, she is absolutely gorgeous and almost puts Shannon Elizabeth to shame.

There are plenty of bare bosoms and bottoms throughout to go with the coarse language, earning the movie an R-rating, which means that technically speaking most teens wouldn't be able to see it. It's funny to see the perspective of each "clique" or cliche. It is doubtlessly a scene that many modern teens will find hilarious. To be completely fair this movie did not stand much of a chance. Instead of being clever, these filmmakers accomplish little more than recycling copycat material from a host of teen films they think they are skewering in a cool fashion. I'm sure this is the "unrated" portion.
Again, its not fair to use words like "unrated" for extra scenes. The plot loosely resolves around a rich, popular jock's attempt to turn a nerdy, unsociable ugly duckling into prom queen material, but plot is the last thing that matters in a movie such as this.
I enjoyed it immensly, when I first watched it on DVD. I can skip my cake and eat it too! Some of my favorite stereotypes of Highschool are in this movie. They would clearly rather have been without it at all, but kept it for box-office reasons. She's got glasses!

Some are disgusting, like the exploding toilet episode, some are distasteful, like the Siamese twins and the girl with Tourette Syndrome a la Deuce Bigelowand almost all are pretty stupid. This type of full-on parody is bound to miss in places. Nevertheless, it could be entertaining for those who do actually remember those John Hughes classics, provided you leave your finer sensibilities at the door. All the stereotypes are there, from the bimbo cheerleader to the horny adolescent peeping tom, and of course there has to be that indispensable element of any teen movie: the Senior Prom.
Talk about turning adversity into opportunity.
Can we help?
A notable exception is Mia Kirshner, who was able to turn what is arguably the movie's worst role into a showcase of her considerable talent as actress. This was a great movie. I'm curious if anyone else did that? But when your pre-production phase can't manage more than a few hundred regurgitated inside jokes and clueless dopey references that fly over the head of the targeted demographics, no amount of competent production talent can save the day.
References were made to two of my favorite 's movies that I thought were almost lost in obscurity: "Lucas" and "Better Off Dead". And Not another teen movie exchange student revealed what causes the twin personality of the film. I know of many items on the DVD that are not included here. What scene it is? Her part the incestuous mean girl is poorly written and totally unfunny yet she finds a way to play it so it actually works. The original cut must have been a post-production nightmare as the editor found scene after scene that just didn't work but was forced to include one horrible segment after another just to build up the running time.
I think the Nasty cheerleader is a little over the top most were pretty nice in my highschool days but its funny to see it played out. The movie itself is typical sophomoric humor, but the spoofs of so many movies that I have watched over the years made it a lot of fun in viewing. If watching Mia is not enough reason to sit through the film there is also Chyler Leigh and Jaime Pressly-even if their acting is average their decorative qualities are exceptional.
Some of my favorites of the recent genre are also covered including "American Pie" and "Cruel Intentions". Furthermore, not many teens nowadays would recognize references to movies made in the 80s.
All in all, a good and mindless 90 minute diversion. Apparently when the director got offered the original script, he did not like it at all, because it was all one big gross-out joke with no story. And she's wearing paint-covered overalls!
The gags are relentless, from start to finish. A good way to make an objective assessment of a project like this is to imagine which of the participants would actually want this to be a part of their. I also have the DVD of this movie. I did notice some "extra" timed scenes that were part of bigger scenes.
Shame on those responsible. And a ponytail! I just made that up. I'm glad I did, actually. In the movie's second funniest scene, a naked foreign exchange student based on Shannon Elizabeth's character in 'American Pie' speaks in her native language and the subtitles work their way around her breasts so as to NOT obscure her nipples.
In the movie's second funniest scene, a naked foreign exchange student based on Shannon Elizabeth's character in 'American Pie' speaks in her native language and the subtitles work their way around her breasts so as to If there was ever a movie that did not need an extended cut this is the one. I've actually seen a few of the movies this movie parodies, AFTER I watched this movie, and I laugh when I think back to the exagerated scene that this movie "re-created. All in all, I would recommend this only in additon to the DVD.
Alone, you miss too much, and that is a shame considering all that the DVD had to offer. Leigh has two especially funny scenes, one where she is frantically painting and another where her entire extended family blunders into her bedroom while she is using a vibrator much like the zipper scene in 'What about Mary'.

So he turned it down. If you can willingly suspend disbelief at this shameless exploitation and creative bankrupcy, then this movie Like horror and spy movies, teen movies is another exploited genre that's ripe for parody. You know the foreign exchange student is going to get naked in the picture and the director found an interesting way to show that by the way, whoever she But one week left a slim collection of choices so I decided to finally take the plunge and rent it.
Me, I quite like it, oddly. I've actually seen a few of the movies this movie. You soon pick up on a lot of negative energy from the cast, they just don't seem to be getting much enjoyment from working with this material, there is no spontaneous merriment. I also enjoyed the "beautifully weird" side boyfriend, who likes to film sex acts, and other strange behavior. I haven't seen all of the movies that NATM spoofs, but I bet the movie goes from one spoof scene to another throughout. And it happens that this scene is also the one that clearly is the big gratuitous gross-out scene in the film.
One of the few continuing inside jokes that actually works is how Leigh's 'plain Janey' character in glasses and ponytail referred to as 'the pretty ugly girl' is actually more beautiful than the glamorous beauty into which she is transformed. So save your money and stay with the cheaper and SHORTER version-you won't be missing anything worth viewing unless you want it to torture your friends.
And Pressly's 'Bring It On' parody is simply the funniest and cleverest scene in the film as she denies stealing a cheer from the black girls and then le the white girls in the stolen routine with words unchanged: 'We are the North Compton Wildcats, we're black and we know it, we shake our big booties and show it, we ain't white, we definitely ain't white! Funny how being in a foreign country lowers the inhibitions of some? This only implys it is more raunchy than the "rated" version, and this is not being honest to consumers.
I also got a kick out of the foreign exchange student. And it got worked over so thoroughly that the finished film apparently basically only has one scene that was in the original script. But they really wanted him, and so he asked them that a writer he knows could work over the script.
I'm only. The extended cut not only includes all the original cut's weak stuff but supplements it with the mega-garbage that was originally trimmed.

These are as obvious a choice for parody as horror films, as both have well defined narrative parameters and a closet full of generic conventions.
