  • Tawdry, trashy yawn-fest that makes the viewer long for the days when bad girls were dangerous dames with sultry style.

  • Preposterous collegiate drama that exists simply to show pretty girls kissing, pretty boys undressing and pretty people of every sexual orientation drinking, doing drugs and otherwise wreaking postadolescent havoc. show more

  • Great trash, one of those mediocre movies that in its own crass way is more enjoyable than most things that get nominated for Oscars. show more
