    well acted and biting satire, not near as dark as Jawbreaker which allows the film to actually tell a story that is relevant.

    I still cannot get some of the ratings on RT! Thus one, G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend) has 81%! I am not sure that this independent teen comedy directed by Darren Stein deserves that. It made its first official screening at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and the story focuses on two closeted gay high school students Tanner & Brent. When Tanner is outed, he is picked up by the cool girls and he begins to surpass still-closeted Brent in popularity. Many people thought that the story was unique and entertaining, especially with the young and fresh faces like Sasha Pieterse, Natasha Lyonne. Evanna Lynch, Megan Mullally, Andrea Bowen, Joanna "JoJo" Levesque, Xosha Roquemore, Horatio Sanz, Paul Iacono, and Michael J. Willett. For me, this movie had no "soul", and it was telling such an irrelevant story of two gay students who attend North Gateway High school, which is dominated by three feuding cliques led by the beautiful Fawcett (Sasha Pietrese), who rules over the richest and the most popular; the talented Caprice (Xosha Roquemore) who leads the school's minorities and theatre arts students; and Shley, a kind but ditzy Mormon that leads the "goody two shoes" and conservative Christians. Maybe, in the United States there are such schools but around the world I haven't seen anything like it. In this type of movies the funny bits are usually situations you could recognize or identify with... I had none of it! Acting was satisfactory, directing was close to mediocre, but for me the screenplay did nothing! The screenplay as the weakest point could not carry a story even for the first 20 minutes, it was already worn out. If you are fan of teen comedies, maybe you'll find something in it... but I will suggest to stay away.
