There's no way to prepare yourself for how awful "The Secret Lives of Dorks" is.
Johnny Severin and Nicholas David Brandt's ... clever and original script takes an unexpected turn at nearly every intersection, resulting in a funny and big-hearted coming-of-age romance.
Replete with deadly fart jokes, projectile-vomit jokes, accidental-boob-grab jokes, and various other sources of alleged humor that real-life outcasts wouldn't voluntarily go anywhere near.
The Jim Belushi of high-school romantic comedies: indifferent, kind of exhausted.
If you are ready for some laughs and almost inhumanly able to go along with the jokes, you will chuckle now and then in spite of yourself.
Another entry in the "Why Should We Care?" department, The Secret Lives of Dorks feels like something we have all been through too many times before.
It has a good heart and a good cast...But the movie is strenuously, exhaustingly unfunny, in a way that makes its phoniness harder to bear.
Tedious teen comedy hits every high school clique cliche.
It tries to be satirical and plausible and fails at both, but it does manage to conjure up just enough heart to keep the experience from being a total grating loss.
