    I don't know why but this movie just screams STUPID...

    Did this do well at the box office?

    Have to admit that parts of it were pretty funny... Parts were stupid, but that type of movie is rather hit or miss... hehe...

    It's one of those Bad Movies that you'll forgive being bad if it happens to make you giggle. As someone who's seen basically all of the teen flicks, I consider this one a guilty pleasure. Despite the fact that the movie often wallows into the very stupidity it's meant to be mocking, I had a good time with it.
    At last count, Not Another Teen Movie made $36,863,271 in domestic box office. IMDb reports the budget at $16 million, plus a healthy amount for advertising. (They hyped this one everywhere!) So it's certainly not a HIT, but the movie made some green.

    If you know the films it's satirizing, it has some laugh-out-loud moments (including a wonderful unpublicized cameo near the end). Other parts suffer from Farrelly/Wayans syndrome, but they pass quickly enough.

    I want to see it just for the John Hughes spoofs...I grew up with those flicks, and love them dearly, that I'm curioius. Especially the Breakfast Club Spoof, that could almost be a re-make!
