...a particularly frustrating missed opportunity that should've (and could've) been so much better.

There was a moment when I hoped it might actually be a send-up of the Can't Buy Me Loves, She's All Thats, Never Been Kisseds, Mean Girls, Heathers, Freaky Fridays, and every-John-Hughes-movie-ever-made of the world. But no.

Despite a novel premise and an appealing, energetic cast, Full Of It seldom finds magic in its supernatural whimsy.

[A] prepubescent piece of piffle in comparison to a hearty belch--it's obnoxious, loud, smelly then soon will disappear into the thin air.

At first glance more stylish than its peers, Full of It rapidly slips into the cliches of the genre.

There is a glimmer of comedy, but it's quickly swamped in overextended gags and broad caricatures.

It's still better than a lot of teen comedies with much bigger budgets.

While Pinkston does a serviceable job and makes an all-too believable nerd, he's neither charming nor funny enough to give the material the extra spark it so desperately needs to engage us.

There have been worse ideas for teen comedies, but few have been as badly executed as this one.

Full of It isn't just a title. Add an S and an H, and you have my most honest review.

I didn't know who Ryan Pinkston was before I watched Full of It, and now I pray to the cinema gods I will never have to wince through another one of his insufferable movies again.

The genre usually gets the super-slick, smash-cutting, roving-camera treatment, but Full of It feels oddly low key despite the fantastical elements. Some pre-fab parts don't quite fit together.

The film is smarter than most teen comedies, and Pinkston can play a dork without venturing into Steve Urkel territory.

This throwaway teen fantasy has its moments but it appears as if the dog ate the script.

A wish fulfillment fantasy of staggering silliness, both smirkingly cutesy and gratingly offensive, this is one for the movie ash heap. Watching it, your heart goes out to the actors, floundering through the cliches.

Somehow Full of It got made and got distributed, despite its nearly fanatical lack of wit or originality.

Full of It abandons the de rigueur hot pastels of the average high school caper in favor of distressed browns and greens, but in the end, all the funky style masks little more than a Pinocchio retread for the adolescent grunge set.
