Comments from young people
Negative—I watched this at a friends house and was blown away by the VAST amount of garbage in this movie… my youth pastor has a saying …GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT… this movie isn’t suitable for anyone… it was a waste of time, and if I had it to do over again I would have made my friend turn it off …there was funny parts, but nothing funny enough to make me forget about the large amount of trashy comments and jokes that were used.
My Ratings: [Extremely Offensive/1]
Jacqueline, age 17
Positive—I found this film to be very funny, but I would NOT recommend it for anyone under the age of 14. It had a lot of crude humor, and some language. …be cautious of the dirty jokes and crude remarks.

…looks to have cost about 700 bucks and could have been shot during a long weekend. Certainly that’s more time and money than was invested in the script…
Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
…lots of aerial skateboarding tricks, lots of leering at scantily clad girls and a plethora of puerile jokes…
Michael Machosky, Pittsburgh-Tribune Review
…it’s the audience that’ll leave the theater feeling rank, particularly the not-nearly-as-dumb-as-they-seem teens this fantastically unfunny comedy seeks to hook…
