Often Painful to Watch
23 December 2015 | by larrys3See all my reviews

For me, this movie was often painful to watch and even cringe inducing at times. It just seemed the intended humor, except for an occasional chuckle, fell "flat as a pancake" and barely worked on any level.

Adam Pally and Sarah Burns co-star here as Jeff and Anne respectively. They're both on the faculty of Jefferson High School, in Pennsylvania. They're also very close friends and both self-described dorks, who become painfully awkward when trying to interact with members of the opposite sex.

With the school term over, and the summer break beginning, Jeff and Anne make a decision to radically change their nebishy personae, and attempt to become what they deem as "cool". This will lead to some wild and crazy situations in their lives, and eventually not the outcomes they expected.

Just to note, the film, directed by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce, with a script from Matt Serword, has highly explicit and crude language throughout, as well as a number of sexual situations.

All in all, this comedy was not worth the painful slog to get to the predictable conclusion, in my opinion. As the final credits roll, the outtakes show us that the cast had a heck of a good time making this move, and a lot better time than I had in viewing it.
