Former MTV executive Joel Gallen makes his feature directorial debut with this broad spoof of the popular teen comedy genre, lampooning dozens of movies including American Pie (1999), American Beauty (1999), Bring It On (2000), Clueless (1995), She's All That (1999), Road Trip (2000), Can't Hardly Wait (1998), 10 Things I Hate About You (1999), Never Been Kissed (1999), and even the teen films of an earlier era such as The Breakfast Club (1985).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A big, fat, juicy spitball lobbed, with mostly dead-on aim, at the teen-smarm clichés that have accumulated like so much earwax over the last three years."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Save your time, save your money, save your soul. Stay at home."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Filmmakers showed great affection for the material they parodied and this is always an important ingredient for any successful parody."
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"It is obvious that the creative forces did not take the film to seriously and if you do not, you just might find yourself laughing along."
‑ Gareth J. Von Kallenbach, Film Threat
"For anyone for whom these films are a guilty pleasure, this pretty much delivers in terms of silliness and over-the-top laugh attempts."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"It's stupid, it's obvious, it's scatological and violent -- but it made me laugh and I'm giving it thumbs up, God help me."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The makers of Not Another Teen Movie should be embarrassed that, in parodying She's All That, they copied most of the plot and then made a movie that bogs down in the same places as the original."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"...any flick that features Molly Ringwald as a woman who hates teenagers is okay in my books."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...crude and unfunny, one of those movies that seem to be put together by cynical marketers who have reason to be convinced American moviegoers will laugh at - and celebrate - any movie that "dares" invoke scatological play and sexual titillation."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Not Another Teen Movie is a little like watching Christina Aguilera make fun of Britney Spears."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"More often than not you'll be groaning from painful recognition rather than actually laughing."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Teenage Wasteland -- strictly for older teens."
‑ Hollis Griffin, Common Sense Media
"Uses the unwelcome Scary Movie method of spoof comedy, in which timing is ignored and jokes are prolonged and beaten to the point where they're just obvious, not funny."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Plumbs new depths of offensiveness for its stomach-churning crudities."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Not too bad as long as you know what you're getting into..."
‑ Paul Salfen,
