It's too palatable. It maintains a tone of light seriousness, and it depends on the caper for too much of its entertainment value.

Next time, director Robbins and his screenwriters should spend a few hours inside a real high school rather than re-hashing stock stereotypes from bad '80s movies.

The filmmakers need to re-watch "Ocean's Eleven" study up, and remind themselves of this important fact: Even teenagers want a movie that makes them think.
