1:56 Fun credits. Is it even possible to drum in a tree?
6:29 “I couldn’t believe it, she knew my name. Some of my best friends didn’t know my name.”
10:45 That’s not funny, stepfather. Prom is stressful enough, from the looks of it.
19:03 That was all too stressful.


I’ve seen this once or twice before when I was younger, and I vaguely remembered it being one of those movies that is full of cringeworthy moments. They’re not really our thing anymore. But we got it in a bundle of movies and thought it was worth a shot.

It wasn’t. Just not funny. Twenty minute rule very much in effect.
