I had to give it a try

"One can always hope, but expectations can be shattered so quickly. I believe one of the actors summed it up best in the deleted scenes commentary: ..."buy the American High School DVD - oh you already did suckers..."
This is a story of a SOCal high school filled with people aged 25 or older, a perverted administrative staff, including a sexist principal, a nude art teacher, a school nurse that tries to have sex with the students, and so on. Nicki Ziering gets plenty of boob time on screen, Aubrey O Day (another Playboy alum) tries to fill some lines out, and all of the guys walk around without shirts so the gals can have something to watch.
Haven't described the plot because there isn't one, but sufficed to say this film covers the last few months of a graduating class learning about life. But the way this group was written they could never have learned anything (even the lines). The deleted scenes total 20 minutes and have a built-in commentary from about six people having way too much fun laughing at themselves.
I can laugh at and love to watch corny high school/college films, but this didn't make the recommendation list. As the director said in commentary "get the pause button ready" when Ziering would be getting naked, obviously the reason they made the whole film."
Even controlled substances couldn't redeem this as entertain

"just like The Hills...but worse.
might have made an halfway decent vlog a la "Dr. Horrible", if it weren't for the acting, story, or production value. more than likely, the wrap party was more fun than the screening.
the eye candy however will make it worth the $3 you'll pay at the gas station for this direct to DVD stereotypical high school flick."
