This movie has the exact same sexist plot as the original, with a diverse cast and even grosser jokes used to "modernize" it. This is yet another teen movie in which the only female characters are the "hot girls" whom both the cool, popular guys & the smart outcast nerds lust after. The girls are represented as complete objects (whose body parts the cameras often focus on) who sluttily throw themselves at their friends' guys or the hero of the moment, and like to be treated like crap by said guys. The two adult women in the movie are a vapid mom and a kind yet rich mom who gets her breasts fondled by a teenage boy "on accident." The father figure, a harmful stereotype of black men who only cares about "getting it on" and thrives on food stamps, encourages his intelligent son to concentrate his energy on "playing" said women. He tells his son his main goal should be "scratching that kitty-kat." To add to the misogyny, Christina Milian, a charming combination of Raven, Lark Voorhies, and Beverly Mitchell, plays a character who stupidly remains faithful to her NBA player boyfriend who is obviously cheating on her, because her friends say he is her "meal ticket." One would hope that the movie would at least attempt to expose the hypocrisy and sexism in the shallow high school world it creates, but it makes no such attempts with its ending - the lead female character tries to explain her dreams and goals to Nick Cannon's character, Alvin, only to be shut up with an invasive kiss. It is ironic that Cannon plays the lead in a movie which in the end *claims* to value smarts over popularity (at least for boys), when his persona as an entertainer seems to be quite shallow indeed. And who knows why a woman wrote and directed this piece of work!
