Released on December 14, 2001, by Columbia Pictures, the film is a parody of teen films. While the general plot is based on She's All That, as well as Varsity Blues, 10 Things I Hate About You, Can't Hardly Wait and Pretty in Pink, the film is also filled with allusions to teenage and college-age films from the 1980s and 1990s, such as Bring It On, American Pie, Cruel Intentions, American Beauty, Never Been Kissed, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Can't Buy Me Love, Jawbreaker, Sixteen Candles, Dazed and Confused, Lucas, Rudy, The Breakfast Club, Grease, and Road Trip, while Paul Gleason reprises his role as Vice Principal Vernon from John Hughes' The Breakfast Club (1985).
In a mid-credits scene, Janey's father Mr. Briggs drunkenly assaults himself with pies in his kitchen. In a post-credits scene, a previously seen albino folk singer, an afroed student with a guitar, reveals that she has become blind and calls out for assistance upon completing her song, while an audience member calls for another to assist in stealing her guitar.
Rotten Tomatoes gave the film an approval rating of 28% based on 96 reviews, with an average rating of 4/10. The site's critics consensus states: \"NATM has some funny moments, but the movie requires the audience to have familiarity with the movies being spoofed and a tolerance for toilet and sexual humor to be truly effective.\" Metacritic gave the film a weighted average score of 32 out of 100 based on 22 critics, indicating \"generally unfavorable reviews\". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of \"C+\" on an A+ to F scale.
Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle called the film \"a crass act\" and pointed out the futility of trying to parody films that are already absurd. LaSalle complained that the film too closely copies She's All That, calling it \"pathetic\" that Not Another Teen Movie is just another formulaic teen movie.
Parents need to know that this film is not for children. The movie contains full frontal female nudity, repeated references to sexual scenarios involving defecation, a storyline in which three teen boys plot \"to get laid,\" and an alcoholic father who urges his teen daughter to commit incest. There are also several references to marijuana, as well as underage drinking, some scenes of comic violence, and lots of strong language (including \"f--k\" and \"s--t\").
A parody of movies marketed to teens, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE depicts what happens when popular jock Jake Wyler (Chris Evans) bets his friends that he can turn any girl into the prom queen merely by associating with him -- even nerdy artist Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh). The movie borrows liberally both from '80s teen classics like The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Pretty in Pink and popular '90s teen flicks like 10 Things I Hate About You, Can't Hardly Wait, and Jawbreaker to wildly lampoon the narratives, characters, and settings that have become the hallmarks of the teen genre. At the same time, it places sex in the foreground -- but not the blushing, naïve pursuits in the name of lust and love so common to teen flicks. Rather, it opts for intergenerational lesbian sex, mother-son and sister-brother incest, and plenty of additional sexually explicit references.
Not Another Teen Movie is both raunchy and excessive. The storyline is interspersed with a few truly funny references to the racial politics of teen comedies like Bring It On (where the white cheerleaders stole the dances moves from a cheerleading squad at a predominantly African-American high school). Also included are terrific cameos by Paul Gleason (who played the principal in The Breakfast Club), Mr. T, and '80s teen flick staple Molly Ringwald.
Enjoy The Ride Records is proud to announce the release of the Not Another Teen Movie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on vinyl for the first time. The soundtrack to the 2001 parody teen comedy features popular pop punk and rock artists, covering rock and new wave hits from the 80s. The film is a comedic homage to the classic teen movies of the 80s + 90s, and the soundtrack pays respect to the songs featured in some of the films parodied, but with a new twist.
not as much a parody of teen movies as it is a perverse love letter (and pre-emptive obituary) to teen movies/parody of the america that worships them, the idea that this is sneering condescension is kind of cancelled out by the fact that one would have to see and love at least 25 different teen rom-coms over & over again to understand all the jokes. happy to report that the thick nostalgia of 2001-ness this is steeped in has made it so much better - sillier but also bittersweet. an important piece of cultural history and still one of the most brilliantly idiotic and rewatchable movies ever made.

Built in the Twenties as the Elks Building, the Park Plaza was a hotel for decades until the surrounding neighbourhood, particularly MacArthur Park, became associated with drug related violence. The hotel closed its doors in 1998 and is now exclusively used for movie shoots and private functions.
And the future Marvel star wasn't the only young actor taking on his first major film role in the Joel Gallen-directed movie, with Grey's Anatomy and Supergirl fan-fan-favorite Chyler Leigh starring opposite Evans in the flick that became a surprise hit with a $66 million box office gross.
In 2005, Evans landed his first superhero gig, cast as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four, and going on to appear in the 2007 sequel. But it wasn't until 2010 that the 40-year-old landed his career-defining role as Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America, starring in three standalone movies and four Avengers films before retiring the shield in 2019. (Though it was reported earlier this year that Evans could return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a mysterious project.)
After playing Austin, dubbed \"the cocky blonde guy,\" Olsen went on to land the part of Lloyd Christmas in Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, the 2003 prequel to the hit movie Dumb and Dumber. He also co-starred alongside Evans again in 2004's Cellular before kicking off his 12-season-and-counting run as Det. Marty Deeks on CBS' hit procedural NCIS: Los Angeles in 2009. Fun fact: Olsen's brother David is his stunt double and is married to his co-star (and onscreen wife) Daniela Ruah. Olsen also recently served as executive producer on the Hulu comedy series Woke.
I suppose I should be grateful. After years of ridiculing teen movies, here's one that does it for me. It's like that soup that heats itself. \"Not Another Teen Movie\" assembles the cliches, obligatory scenes and standard characters from three recent subgenres of the teen movie (prom, cheerleader and tasteless sex) and cross-fertilizes them, if that is the word, with the John Hughes teenager movies of the 1980s. Of course Hughes was a lot better than his recent imitators, but people who know that are likely to be in their 30s now and won't be going to see \"Not Another Teen Movie,\" anyway.
Who does that leave in the theater The current audience for teen movies, I suppose. But if they're dumb enough to like them, why would they be smart enough to appreciate a satire Maybe this will simply play for them like--just another teen movie.
Did I laugh during the movie. Yes, I did, a few times, although not as much as I did at the better teen movies like \"American Pie\" or \"Scary Movie.\" I liked the way the characters pointed out the cliches they were inhabiting (although that was done first in \"Scary Movie\"). And the way that when the hero bets he can turn the plain girl into the prom queen, the black guy tells him, \"You'll lose the bet, but learn valuable lessons.\" And the way the subtitles left spaces for the naughty bits in the scene with the nude foreign exchange student. And the awareness of the Slow Clap, a cliche that is rapidly getting to be a public nuisance.
It was good to see familiar faces from old movies, like Molly Ringwald, who offers some hard-learned advice, and John Vernon, who engages in some almost hallucinatory dialogue with a student in detention class. But it was not good to see yet still more wretched excess in the jokes about characters being sprayed with vast quantities of excrement. The movie does not understand that all fart jokes depend on context to be funny. And the opening sequence involving a vibrator is just plain embarrassing.
I have here a heartfelt message from a reader who urges me not to be so hard on stupid films, because they are \"plenty smart enough for the average moviegoer.\" Yes, but one hopes being an average moviegoer is not the end of the road: that one starts as a below-average filmgoer, passes through average, and, guided by the labors of America's hard-working film critics, arrives in triumph at above-average. 781b155fdc
