Almost immediately disposable, fading from memory before it even ends.

Only Randy Quaid is able to do something with this detumescent script.

I left with an overwhelming feeling of what might have been -- not a lot unlike, I suppose, the high school experience itself.

Not Another Teen Movie is Hollywood's answer to the Whoopee Cushion.

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.

Spotty, only slightly inspired and occasionally amusing fluff.

What Scream did for horror movies, this movie does for 80's - 2001 teen movies, with a great soundtrack.

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.

Unlike Young Frankenstein, Airplane or the first Naked Gun, Not Another Teen Movie fails to stick to a story and carry it through to the end.

If you have a high tolerance for unblinking gross-out gags and you love making fun of Freddie Prinze Jr. flicks, odds are you'll have a good time with this one.

Half the jokes in this one are funny and work, while the rest are unfunny and lame.

Perhaps the most tasteless comedy ever aimed at a multiplex. At least until the sequel.

There is, apparently, a very fine line between parody and suckiness. Spoof films, by definition, take ideas one step further than their predecessors. Not Another Teen Movie goes an extra couple steps, and it all comes off as frantic desperation.

More like a game, with checklist of the stereotypes and classic teen film scenarios, than it is a movie.

How do you take jabs at things that were supposed to be comical in nature to begin with? Not Another Teen Movie never quite figures out the answer to this.

If you look hard enough, you will find the inner beauty within Not Another Teen Movie. You will win the big football game, and become prom queen, too.

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

Save your time, save your money, save your soul. Stay at home.

Joel Gallen (who created the MTV Movie Awards) and screenwriters Michael G. Bender, Adam Jay Epstein, Andrew Jacobson, Phil Beauman and Buddy Johnson all seem to have labored under the delusion that alluding to pop-cultural tropes is inherently comical.

Despite an occasional laugh here and a chuckle there -- comes off as a hit or miss endeavor that unfortunately has more of the latter and never comes close to kicking into comedic overdrive.
