Now that I have your attention, let's aim our peepers at today's assignment:
Only just a little squee, though, because this movie?
|Yes, even though it has pigtail girl in it.|
Of course we then meet the rest of the staff. Former high-school jock turned gym teacher aching for the glory days, hyper-vigilant Tea-Party enthusiast, sweet and lovable old flame, kooky science teacher with "previous brain injury" realness, and obviously gay . Basically a group of unlikable jerks (barring sweet and lovable, up there and kooky kind of grows on you but never quite gets there).
|Obligatory OHNOES shot.|
ANYWAY! Yes, kids, there are a lot of parental fears wrapped up in this one and they aren't being analyzed, really. They're being lampooned. Which I love. Because fuck parental paranoia.
"Pink slime"? We, as Americans, didn't LIKE the shape of actual chicken so we made nuggets. How else do you think those little nuggets of chicken meat get shaped to look like a fat California? It's still meat, it's just ground like hamburger. Cows don't come in a patty shape either.
|This is what happens when you get a dork to play a gym teacher.|
"The horrors of puberty"? Yeah, not so much. That's the kicker, here.
|Who let the hobbit drive?|
I mean, it's enjoyable but it needed work. My husband hated it but he's generally bored by horror movies anyway so he doesn't count.
OK! Now that that's out of the way, who wants nuggets?
