Samuel L. Jackson is god. HE'S EVERYWHERE. A nice but meh teenage idea, neither funny or deep enough. But I could see a movie just about Thomas Mann being cute. THAT'S IT. He's my teenage crush. COME AND GET ME. I'm waiting by the helicopter. Bye.
It's embarrassing how little it would take for it to be even slightly better, especially considering the cast involved. The notion of a girl learning the 'high school experience' only from movies and magazines she read and wanting to live it is interesting, but than completely abandoned for rushed, unfocused, over the top and absurd plot, ridiculous even for the film and genre it tries to be.
