Storyline

In the final days of her senior year Mandy Meyers is forced to change high schools when her father's business moves the family from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California. As attractive as she is intelligent, Mandy sees McDermott High as a chance to start fresh, have some fun, and try things she's never done before. On Mandy's first day of school, McDermott High's two prettiest yet cruelest seniors befriend Mandy and attempt to show her the wild side of Southern California high school life. Likewise, the entire male senior class has also taken notice of Mandy, and she's soon being chased by both an apathetic yet charismatic stoner, and a star football player.

Getting that Girl ~ An awesome Movie!!! 2 Thumbs UP!
1 January 2012 | by hollycorveraSee all my reviews

A modern day "Fast times at Ridgemont High". Very entertaining, with laugh out loud times to make your sides hurt! I enjoyed the plot. It has come at a time when teenagers need it most...Peer pressure seen for what it truly is. I will be engaging with my teenage daughter to show her how to laugh at herself...LOL...I fell the director and writer Nathaniel Koffman did a wonderful job with details and script. I would watch this movie over and over... Looking forward to part 2, maybe set in the college/adult genre...Keep up the good work! We need more movies like this! Laughing out Loud is the only way to watch a movie these days!
