We have the male lead of John Tucker, whoís popularity exceeds Ferris Buellerís, and virtually every teenage girl stereotype, complete with the ďnew girl whoís hot but doesnít know itĒ, is represented. I think itís a mandate in the Hollywood rule book that every couple of years a movie like this comes out to give the younger generation something to measure their miserable high school years to.
The movie itself is just too big of a joke to be taken too seriously and the sentimental elements of the film are jammed down the viewers throat. When it comes down to it, you donít feel sorry for any of the characters because theyíre all shallow, petty and pretty much deserve anything they get.
The surprise of the film is the lovely Brittany Snow. Sheís cute as can be and she was the lone star of the film that actually gave a believable performance. Jesse Metcalfe did nothing more than continue his character from Desperate Housewives and the supporting girls were average at best.
Deleted Scenes with optional commentary (1:03): Absolutely pointless. I donít even know why these two scenes were included. They offer nothing to the story and they donít make sense.
Grrrl Power (4:16): All the girls get together and talk about how much fun they had making the film and how much they loved the director. Itís a decent featurette, although thereís no mention of the subsequent pillow fights.
Kodiak Yearbook (3:48): The cast talks about their days in high school. All of these people are hot, so this isnít interesting. Also, none of them say anything interesting because none of them had a real high school experience.
On the Rebound (1:59): Perhaps the worst part of the film was the special effects used in the basketball sequences. This talks about those effects and apparently Jesse Metcalfe can play basketball, or at least he can play against paid actors.
Cutting Class with Jesse Metcalfe (3:56): Jesse walks around the set and points out obvious locations. Basically, if you love looking at Jesse, and you donít care what he says, then this feature is for you.
John Tucker Must Die Dating Quiz (2:42): Itís not as fun as it sounds since itís a video featurette that asks questions and then gives you the answers, all the while splicing in scenes from the movie.
There are also some Previews and a Music video.
