Not bad....
8 April 1999 | by GilsonSee all my reviews

This was actually not a bad movie.

I mean, it was not great or anything, but it was still pretty good.

The funny part is, is that both Anthony Michael Hall(16 Candles. The Breakfast Club. Weird Science) and Courtney Gains(Can't Buy Me Love) were always playing the parts of dorks when they were teenagers, but now they play the parts of a bunch of crazy killers in this. A true "Revenge Of The Nerds" movie. :-)
