In case there is ever a shortage of drugs for teens...

"I had to resort to a teen movie tonight as I was told none of my reviews included any youth related movies. I had already seen Senior Skip Day a few weeks ago so this is what was left.
The teen to 20-somethings keep coming into the store this summer wanting to see their type of comedy - but I would have difficulty in finding a recent quality title. Though I know they would love to watch this - even if they had not heard of it (word of mouth being so important in choosing a movie when your friends are present) telling the accompanying parent what is in it - would kill it.
This 1999 themed last day of high school involves more drugs, alcohol, sex, drama and fights than I thought they could fit into one 24-hour period. The story actually involves over 30 teens (played by everyone over 20) instead of a couple core characters. I hate to admit there were two laugh-out-load moments, but the majority of the film is meant to be a drama (not a comedy as advertised).
I would say watch Senior Skip Day if you want the laughs and this one if you want to relate to the teen characters on a more serious level. I gave it a 2nd star just for that photo montage at the end; makes one think of their yearbook, maybe even a summary of all the people they knew when they graduated high school and the moments of their lives during that last day. The credits remind me of Animal House or Uncommon Valor with the face to name mix; helps to sort out the mass of actors that you see in loads of other TV shows and films here.
As a parent do I want to recommend it? Absolutely not. As a teen, do they want to see it? Absolutely. It is a random film with no real plot or withholdings as everything gets hit here: closet lesbianism, inter-racial teen relationships, tons of drinking and drugs, every adult looking like an inept idiot, underage sex, peer pressure, etc. The drug use was over-extensive but I guess the adults that made this feel every single teen is on shrooms, pot or drinks every day. Oh well."
I LOVE IT!!

"I love this movie!! I've been waiting since I think 2006 to see this movie and I'm not disappointed!!The acting in this movie leads to very believable storylines and I think teenagers everywhere can relate to at least one of these characters, and recognize something that they or someone they know personally went through!
Jess Manafort did an amazing job directing this movie and I cannot wait to see more of her work...All the actors did an amazing job as well!"
I love this movie
