Film: Not Another Teen Movie

"You put the "suck" in "liposuction" You put the "eww" in "jiu-jitsu" You put the "ism" in "This is all just a defense mechanism"."

A 2001 Affectionate Parody that attempted to do for High School movies what Scary Movie did for horror. It shared some of the same creators (none of whom were Seltzer and Friedberg).

The basic plot was taken from She's All That, but it also parodied American Pie, Can't Hardly Wait, The Breakfast Club and dozens of others. Including a parody of the Heath Ledger singing scene from 10 Things I Hate About You that leads to the Pretty Ugly Girl being tasered.

Opinion is more than a little divided on Not Another Teen Movie. The critics absolutely hated it, but a lot of fans think it is the funniest and cleverest spoof since The Naked Gun.
