Kind of stunned at all the hate. This is a very funny movie, but ultimately very, very kind-hearted. The film isn't misogynist in the sense it doesn't make the women out to be faceless caricatures, and it doesn't show the men as nihilistic slobs who stick with the same mean-spirited attitude at the end of the film. It captures the naive times of high school well, and Eugene Levy's character is arguably his funniest.
I really think this movie is underrated, especially here on mubi. People seem to have forgotten that it was (probably) the first of its kind - a bazillion movies with the same or similar concept followed, most of them imitating its style and characters. I'm almost a 100% sure that this deserves more than 2 stars. At least 3.
