Not Another Teen Movie is a 2001 American comedy film released on December 14, 2001 by Columbia Pictures. It is a parody of the teen films and other cinematic portrayals of adolescence which have accumulated in Hollywood over the last few decades. While the general plot is based on She's All That and 10 Things I Hate About You, the film is also filled with allusions to numerous other films.

Plot

In the stereotypical high school community of John Hughes High sexy Priscilla (Jaime Pressly), a popular cheerleader, separates from her boyfriend, Jake Wyler (Chris Evans). After Jake discovers that Priscilla is now dating strange and socially inept Les (Riley Smith) just to spite him, one of Jake’s friends, Austin (Eric Christian Olsen), suggests seeking retribution by making Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh), a "uniquely rebellious girl", the prom queen. Jake attempts to court Janey's love, but faces adversity from his own sister Catherine (Mia Kirshner), who is sexually attracted to him, Janey’s unnoticed admirer and best friend Ricky (Eric Jungmann), and memories from his past football career. Catherine eventually helps her brother by slightly altering Janey’s appearance (taking away her glasses and ponytail), instantly making her drop dead gorgeous.

Meanwhile, Janey's little brother, Mitch, and his friends, Ox and Bruce, make a pact to lose their virginity by Graduation even though they are still in their Freshmen year. Mitch tries to impress his longtime crush, the beautiful Amanda Becker (Lacey Chabert) with a letter professing his love for her. Ox says that he doesn't have a chance with her.

As the prom draws near, Jake draws infamy among his peers after he fails to lead his football team to victory at the state championship game the year before. The situation is further worsened when Austin tricks Jake into telling Janey about his plan to spite Priscilla by pretending to whisper the secret bet in Janey's ear, causing her to immediately leave Jake. During prom night, Austin and Janey go together; a jealous Jake and Catherine have a dance off with Austin and Janey, with Catherine dancing in a sexual manner. Janey runs off crying.

Meanwhile Mitch and his friends are having a lousy time at the prom until Amanda Becker arrives and Mitch gives her the letter and Ox later hooks up with Catherine.

Jake is awarded prom king and the principal reads out that the votes for prom queen are tied. Everyone thinks that it is between Janey and Priscilla, but they are shocked to find that Kara and Sara Fratelli (Samaire Armstrong and Nectar Rose), twins conjoined at the head, win prom queen. During the traditional prom king and queen dance, Janey supposedly left with Austin to go to a hotel. But while at the room he finds Austin having wild sex with a girl but is shocked to find that it is Priscilla not Janey while the weird Les videotapes with his pants down supposedly having an erection, Austin tells Jake that Janey "ran home to her daddy". Jake angrily punches Austin and Priscilla for what they had done to Janey, then punches Les for "being really weird"; afterwards he runs to Janey's house only to learn from her father that she is going to Paris for art school.

Jake arrives at the airport and confronts her before she can board the plane, and uses a plethora of clichéd lines from other movies (such as She's All That, Cruel Intentions, American Pie, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink) to convince her to stay in America. His final (and first original) speech suggests they would be better off apart, but Janey mistakenly believes he's quoting The Karate Kid, and she decides to stay with him.

List of movies used

Cast of characters

  • Chyler Leigh as Janey Briggs (The Pretty Ugly Girl) - She is a rebellious character with a ponytail, glasses, and paint-covered overalls. Janey is a very unpopular girl who seems to have only a single friend, Ricky Lipman. She lives with her father and brother in a small house. Her mother is said to have died when she was six years old.
  • Chris Evans as Jake Wyler (The Popular Jock) - Jake is a cocky, fairly dim-witted jock. He used to be the star of the school's football team, but lost the title after an unfortunate football pass in a past game. Early on in the film, Jake takes on a bet to turn Janey Briggs into the prom queen but soon finds himself falling in love with her. The character is based on Zach Siler, a character played by Freddie Prinze Jr. in She's All That, but can also be a reference to Jake Ryan in Sixteen Candles, James van der Beeks' character in Varsity Blues and Andrew McCarthy's character in Pretty in Pink.
  • Jaime Pressly as Priscilla (The Nasty Cheerleader) - The most popular girl in school and Jake's ex-girlfriend. She is nasty, rude and is shown to be very mean to Janey — and other individuals — throughout the film. Priscilla dumps Jake at the beginning of the film for Les, the "beautiful weirdo".
  • Eric Christian Olsen as Austin (The Cocky Blond Guy) - An obnoxious, cocky, blond jerk who bets Jake he can't turn Janey into prom queen.
  • Mia Kirshner as Catherine Wyler (The Cruelest Girl in School) - Highly promiscuous, she is sexually attracted to her younger brother Jake, and helps him to makeover Janey in exchange for sex.
  • Deon Richmond as Malik Token (The Token Black Guy) - As his stereotype suggests, he's part of the cast as the token black guy, saying random exclamations and not moving the plot in any way.
  • Eric Jungmann as Ricky Lipman (The Obsessed Best Friend) - He is Janey's best friend who is also madly (and explicitly) in love with her, although Janey remains completely clueless about this.
  • Ron Lester as Reggie Ray (The Stupid Fat Guy) - A football player that has several concussions throughout the film.
  • Cody McMains as Mitch Briggs (The Desperate Virgin) - Janey's obnoxious, crude, and stubborn younger brother who is desperate to lose his virginity before the end of the school year.
  • Sam Huntington as Ox (The Sensitive Guy) - A friend of Mitch's that yearns to find true love.
  • Samm Levine as Bruce (The Wannabe) - An Asian wannabe.
  • Lacey Chabert as Amanda Becker (The Perfect Girl) - Mitch's love interest and all-around "perfect" girl at school.
  • Cerina Vincent as Areola (The Naked Foreign Exchange Student) - Although the school claims a strict dress code, she is naked throughout the entire film. Her accent also changes frequently throughout the movie, Janey notices this and Areola tells her she is a generic foreign exchange student whose country of origin is of little importance.
  • Riley Smith as Les (The Beautiful Weirdo) - He is always seen with a video camera and a floating plastic bag following him around known as "The Most Beautiful Thing I have Ever Seen."
  • Ed Lauter as Coach - The aggressive, cruel, and obscene football coach that constantly spits and ends sentences with "God dammit."
  • Randy Quaid as Mr. Briggs - Janey's and Mitch's kindhearted but dumb father.
  • Joanna Garcia as Sandy Sue - A girl with Tourette's Syndrome who aspires to be a cheerleader.
  • Beverly Polcyn as Sadie Agatha Johnson - A well-past-60-year-old undercover reporter who is taught how to make love by Catherine.
  • Robert Patrick Benedict as Preston Wasserstein - A kid whose oblivious parents leave the house so he could throw a party.

Cameos

Many stars of recent teen movies as well as those highlighting the 1980s decade make credited and uncredited appearances. These include:

Extra footage

Alternate footage

  • Three scenes that appear on the R-rated trailer are not included in the film: a scene that spoofs Save the Last Dance where a girl is dancing at the big party, a scene that spoofs Never Been Kissed during the football game with Sadie standing on the football field with a microphone before the entire football team runs her down (the person she was waiting for- one of the school teachers- gets up out of the bleachers just before she is run down and then sits immediately after she is trampled), and a small scene with Areola asking the principal if her breasts are perky (this scene does appear in the unrated cut of the film).
  • In the trailer for the film, Jake wears boxer shorts during the whipped cream bikini scene, whereas during that same scene in the film, he wears no shorts; his bare crotch is covered with whipped cream instead.

Footage during credits

The film has three extra scenes at the end:

  • Mitch, Ox, and Bruce talking about what they learned from the whole experience. (This scene comes only in the unrated cut.)
  • Mr Briggs, in a parody of a scene from "American Pie", talks about a "three-way" while holding two pies. (This scene comes only in the rated cut.)
