Teen comedy is dated but occasionally funny.

The story of a nerd who pays a perky cheerleader to date him so he will become popular is almost pornographic in its uninhibited, primitive display of the confusion and insecurity that roils like a tempest in the developing mind of the American teenager

The film thinks it wants to be sincere, when all it truly wants is to be popular, just like the other kids' movies, so it sells off its originality.

It doesn't have a thought in its head and probably no notion of the corruption at its core.

As written by Michael Swerdlick and guided by Rash, the theme dissolves into a bland parody of pubescent pain.
