An original premise and earnest tone go a long way.

"G.B.F" works its concept to death as its silly story builds to a prom scene that revolves around a tepid, underwhelming homage to "Carrie."

Writer George Northy embraces the high school dilemma and fuses it with a touch of drama that gives the film massive heart.

well acted and biting satire, not near as dark as Jawbreaker which allows the film to actually tell a story that is relevant.

Stylish, contemporary. Has a mass/sass appeal like Glee (but without the singing). Well written with interesting, albeit largely superficial, characters --… More
