Not Another Teen Movie is a 2001 American teen comedy film directed by Joel Gallen and written by Mike Bender, Adam Jay Epstein, Andrew Jacobson, Phil Beauman, and Buddy Johnson. The film features an ensemble cast including Chyler Leigh, Chris Evans, Jaime Pressly, Eric Christian Olsen, Eric Jungmann, Mia Kirshner, Deon Richmond, Cody McMains, Sam Huntington, Samm Levine, Cerina Vincent, Ron Lester, Randy Quaid, Lacey Chabert, and Riley Smith.
Released on December 14, 2001 by Columbia Pictures, it is a parody of teen movies which had accumulated in Hollywood over the decades preceding its release. While the general plot is based on Can’t Hardly Wait, Pretty in Pink, Varsity Blues, She’s All That, and 10 Things I Hate About You, the film is also filled with allusions to numerous other teen and college-age films including Bring It On, American Pie, Cruel Intentions, American Beauty, Never Been Kissed, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Can’t Buy Me Love, Sixteen Candles, Lucas and The Breakfast Club.
A sendup of all the teen movies that have accumulated in the past two decades.
