Not Another Teen Movie

Along the same lines as Scary Movie, here comes another spoof attempting to tackle the growing teen movie genre. You may have seen director Joel Gallen work--most recently in the 2001 Victoria Secret Fashion show (remember the angel wings?) and in concerts for the Dixie Chicks and Mariah Carey. His first Hollywood feature film is Columbia Pictures' Not Another Teen Movie, a parody of high school comedy flicks, spoofing such recent movies like Ten Things I Hate About You, Clueless and American Pie. The film follows Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh), an aspiring artist and social outcast with glasses, a ponytail and paint-splattered overalls, and Jake Wyler (Chris Evans), the school jock and All-American football star, who takes a bet to turn Janey into a prom queen. See "Opening Friday" for theaters.
