    Everyone is the most cliche caricature and what's worse is the film wants you to know it and basks in it.

    To respond to this I'm simply going to quote the film:

    This is a good film. The nerd wasn't a very good character and the bad boy had the most cliché back story ever. Another problem is that they made Bender an asshole, solely, to advance the plot.
    Still, outside from that, the dialogue was good and I felt it touched some interesting subjects concerning teenagers in a manner that felt natural unlike most films about teenagers, which usually feel forced and unrealistic. We all know most teenagers are never this brutally honest with themselves and others, so this was quite impressive for me.
    It definitely has some flaws but it also has some strengths and I would recommend that you watch it. 7/10.
