New girl Cassie and outcast Maggie are easily the most awkward girls in school, but when they make it their mission to win 1st place in the school talent show, not even 80s mean girls and boneheaded jocks can stand in their way.

Me and a friend found this movie on Netflix years ago and we decided to watch together and it's probably one of the best things that ever happened to me. I literally cannot praise this movie enough. There's just no limit to the great things I could say about it. Probably the single funniest movie I've ever watched. One of the most incredible pieces of filmography that needs to be shared with the world. Like, let's forget 5 Stars, straight up this movie deserves 10 of them. I find myself quoting the lines from this movie on an almost daily basis, and so many of the lines too. Never before have I really ever committed myself to memorizing the entire script of a movie like I have with this one, I've seen quite a few movies. I'm sure the comedy in this movie is not for everybody but I can never get enough of it.

A Classic Gem...
Verified purchase
I first saw this movie on Netflix after reading the "Synopsis". It intrigued me so I had to see more. I'm glad I did, too. This is such an amazingly hilarious movie. Cassie Glenn, (Totally Rockin' Superstar Extraordinaire... You're Welcome), has me laughing out loud in almost every scene she's in. From her lines to her facial expressions, I could not get enough. It is very cheesy and campy, but also very smart. If you watch one indie movie this year, make it this one! The two female leads in the movie are played by men, but that's what makes the movie and the jokes shine even more. It's been around a month since I've since I first watched it and I still watch it at least every other day. I literally "LOL" every time I watch it. If you appreciate campy humor, you will love this movie!

Okay, stop reading my totally rad review and watch this movie now!

Move over Mr. Waters....
Verified purchase
Move over Mr. Waters, there's some new players in town! OMG, where do I start with this one? I bought this movie after seeing the trailer and reading the reviews here on Amazon. Took a chance and I don't regret it. Anyone who doesn't find this movie funny must have their funny bone broken. There were times, some of the sight gags or lines had me laughing so hard, I was absolutely in tears! How these two guys stay in character and deliver those lines is brilliant. For those of you that have seen the movie, recognize Cassie's mom? How about the art teacher or Dirk for that matter? I can only hope these two guys will produce more movies with those characters.

Over the top, tongue in cheek silliness
Verified purchase
This is one of those movies that I ended up liking, though I'm a little embarrassed for liking it. Cassie and Maggie are two misfits - for several reasons - teen "girls" who become fast friends when the overly optimistic Cassie goes to high school after being home schooled her whole life by her mother (played by none other than Cassandra Peterson - Elvira) and becomes besties with the hapless Maggie. The stage is now set for the odd girls out to battle the A crowd for dominance and quite a bit of silliness ensues. This isn't exactly a classic, but it was good, silly fun and the acting was pretty decent throughout. The over the top fun suited the theme especially as our two heroines are actually boys in drag. I got several good laughs out of this movie and I wasn't even drinking at the time.

"You're Welcome"
Verified purchase
My first impression of this film was "meh"...but I keep watching it. It keeps creeping up in my mind and makes me smile.

You can tell that they had to get creative to make this movie on a low budget. The cut corners are very obvious, but that quickly becomes part of the charm to this film. The cast is 100% dedicated to telling this odd story and make you smile.

The film is filled with cameos from the LGBT industry and I believe they supported the right project. It's a raunchy comedy that makes no promises or apologies.

It's just a great time!

Hilarious and I don't toss that word around.
Verified purchase
Well, color me shocked and surprised. I never would have thought in a zillion years that I would love this movie as much as I did. So very funny and major camp, too. But camp done well and that adds to the funny. The laughs were everywhere so it would be impossible to start and single any out. The 2 main characters are girls, they are that in the movie but played by 2 guys...but they are girls, not in drag, they are girls, you have to keep that in mind. Let me make this clear, they and the entire cast are truly hysterical. "didn't we tell you not to talk, just take off your shirt" (you'll see). Recommend this for any and everyone, you just need to be ready to have fun.

not the greatest but, does have a message.
Verified purchase
Not the best movie but it does have a upside. the upside have a message. You shouldn't be a victim or make yourself a victim of the so-called IN-Crowd ( in high school) Cheerleaders, football/sport team. I was a no-body in school. Where is the so-called in-crowd now days? They are the losers now. with divorce,bankrupt/dead end jobs and all around losers/lonely.

Worth every penny
Verified purchase
A friend recommended this film to me back in 2015 and since it was on Netflix, I watched it!

And then watched it again.

And again.

And again.

It's a hilarious, cleverly written film, and I finally had to just outright buy it. It helped me through a few rough spots in my life over the last year, and I adore it.
