    As a person who attended high school in the early 1980's, a movie like "Not Another Teen Movie" is actually kinda funny to see how many of those zany teen movies are spoofed and used to string along a conventional teen movie plot, while being self-deprecating along the way.

    The leads are nice to look at (Chyler Leigh in the Rachel Leigh Cook role from "She's All That" and Chris Evans doing a decent young "Alec Baldwin" impersonation), and I'm grateful for anything that features Mia Kirshner. The rest of the cast are okay, and seem to know where the source material comes from, and has a good time.

    Seeing Neal Moritz (producer) spoof his own films, like "Cruel Intentions"'s lesbian kiss and incestial competition payoff, are actually quite silly in some respects, but deliciously dark and funny at the same time, or perhaps I have a warped sense of humor.

    Anyhow, I snickered through most of the teen movie references, so I got my money's worth, plus any movie that dares to include references from "Better Off Dead" gets bonus points in my book. The movie doesn't really sag much along the way as the gags are just stitched together at a good even pace. Only a handful of scenes fall flat, while the rest get enough mileage out of me to keep me entertained.

    I give it 3 stars, or a grade of B.
