Still another movie arguing that the American teenager's IQ level hovers in the low 90s.

January 1, 2000
Like some kind of perverse cinematic plague, the teen comedies keep coming, each looking like a more washed-out xerox of the last one.

There are way too many poop and crotch jokes.

Whatever It Takes is one of the worst and most inept teen movies I've seen since last year's Jawbreaker.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Emotional falsehood permeates the picture, but at least the young actors are appealing.

If you saw a single John Hughes movie from the 1980s, you've already seen this territory covered with more style and insight.
January 1, 2000
Yet another leaden, witless, cliché-drunk, teen romantic comedy.
January 1, 2000
The lightest, most forgettable item yet backed by Phoenix Pictures.
January 1, 2000
Mark Schwahn didn't really write Whatever It Takes; he more or less assembled it out of spare parts, pop-culture detritus, the best and worst leftovers available to a first-time writer on a school-lunch budget.
January 1, 2000
You -- yes, you -- can write a teen comedy. Whatever It Takes is proof.

January 1, 2000
An occasionally amusing but otherwise unimaginative teen-based comedy.
