In the stereotypical high school community of John Hughes High in Southern California, sexy Priscilla, a popular cheerleader, separates from her football star boyfriend, Jake Wyler. After Jake discovers that Priscilla is now dating peculiar Les just to spite him, one of Jake's friends, Austin, suggests seeking retribution by turning Janey Briggs, a "uniquely rebellious girl", into the prom queen. Jake attempts to court Janey's love, but faces adversity from his own sister, Catherine, who is sexually attracted to him; Janey's unnoticed admirer and best friend, Ricky Lipman; and memories from his past football career. Catherine eventually assists her brother by slightly altering Janey's appearance by simply removing her glasses and ponytail , instantly making her drop dead gorgeous. Meanwhile, Janey's younger brother, Mitch, and his friends, Ox and Bruce, make a pact to lose their virginity by graduation despite still being in their freshman year.
Not Another Teen Movie was one of Chris Evans' first acting gigs and as you probably know already, he didn't let up after that. He also starred in the cult favorite Snowpiercer and a bunch of romantic comedies like What's Your Number alongside Anna Faris. He's pretty much inescapable in the best way possible. He's been acting steadily ever since. Fun fact: Back in the day, he played the teenage and human version of Salem the cat on Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Some of the most classic scenes in movies take place in a very private and sacred room for most of us: the bathroom. In my eyes, a bathroom immediately adds a comedic element. For some reason when a person is speaking to me from a bathroom I always tend to grin. This is a very interesting piece on it.
The logic seems to go something like this: If toilet humor is funny, then gallons of sewage will be really funny. This example is not a hypothetical one. The script shows that even if you hire five screenwriters, they all, eventually, will stoop to jokes about bodily fluids. Most of the characters are a composite of movie stereotypesdumb jocks, mean rich kids, the sexy foreign exchange studentwhile others are simply a low-grade copy from other films. The popular boy, Jake Chris Evans makes a bet that he can turn any girl into prom queen, even poor-as-dirt Janey Briggs Chyler Leigh , who, we are reminded several times, has a ponytail and glasses and wears paint-covered overalls.
