A big, fat, juicy spitball lobbed, with mostly dead-on aim, at the teen-smarm clichés that have accumulated like so much earwax over the last three years.

It's stupid, it's obvious, it's scatological and violent -- but it made me laugh and I'm giving it thumbs up, God help me.

More often than not you'll be groaning from painful recognition rather than actually laughing.

The makers of Not Another Teen Movie should be embarrassed that, in parodying She's All That, they copied most of the plot and then made a movie that bogs down in the same places as the original.

With so many gags coming at us so fast and furiously, some of them are bound to misfire. But, hey, that's OK: There's always another gag around the corner, and chances are it'll be funny.

This parody of teen comedies is just teen comedy by the numbers, for those who can only count to three.

Many of the movie's targets are just too big and too obvious to elicit more than a smile of recognition, and the movie quickly degenerates into little more than a game of spot the (generally unfunny) reference for fans of the teen genre.

The jokes are overlong and lean heavily on the most obvious and most raunchy.

A breath of fresh, frisky air, even if it does hinge on cliches.

Along with this venial sin of simple redundancy, the picture commits the less pardonable crime of commercial irrationality.

Crass, misogynistic, homophobic and racist, it lacks finesse, originality and humor.
Top Critic
Jonathan Perry
Boston Globe
December 14, 2001
A clever satire that's layered like a breakfast club sandwich with sly in-jokes, sight gags, gross-out scenes, and, of course, requisite bathroom humor.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

Not Another Teen Movie is a happy, nasty and frequently hilarious assault on 20 years' worth of youth pictures.

Teen is nothing more than the timelessly crude throwaway project it wants to be.

It was not good to see yet still more wretched excess in the jokes about characters being sprayed with vast quantities of excrement.

For the most part NATM requires passing acquaintance with the source material.

Like the generations it entertains, the vitality of the teen movie genre waxes and wanes.

Not only is it consistently clever, but it has respect for many of the movies it lampoons.

Stupid, offensive entertainment delivered with nothing more than a smirk is still stupid and offensive.

It can't help but fall prey itself to a final deadly genre cliché: Its soundtrack outsparkles the movie.

It's a bad sign that the features Not Another Teen Movie is parodying are funnier than the movie itself.
