Teenage Wasteland -- strictly for older teens.

...crude and unfunny, one of those movies that seem to be put together by cynical marketers who have reason to be convinced American moviegoers will laugh at - and celebrate - any movie that "dares" invoke scatological play and sexual titillation.

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

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

Beyond the obligatory sight gags -- and a French-kiss scene that would simply stun the AARP -- much of the film elicits little more than weak giggles.

Too much of Not Another Teen Movie simply duplicates previous films, without adding anything.

In director Joel Gallen's attempt to spoof the genre, he has merely added another lame entry to it.

Crass, misogynistic, homophobic and racist, it lacks finesse, originality and humor.

This scattershot and dissolving satire accomplishes nothing more than recycling copycat material from the idiotic teen films of today and yesteryear it thinks it's skewering in savvy fashion.

There simply isn't anything to say about it -- good or bad. Maybe that's because it isn't a movie at all, just a string of scenes.

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.

Nothing like a vulgar teen comedy to whet a dry holiday whistle, but I'll take mine with splash of humor.

No vale la pena gastar el dinero en un monumento a la estulticia y la superficialidad como es esta cinta.

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

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

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.

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