Jeff and Anne, two close friends and co-workers in a suburban high school, are embarrassingly unlucky at love. With nothing else to lose, they hatch a plan to transform themselves over the course of a sex-and-alcohol-fueled summer into the cool, confident people they aspire to be. At first an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery, Jeff and Anne's journey turns into a laugh-out-loud experiment as they lose their identities, their dignity, and quite possibly each other.Written by
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.
