You would think people would make less films displaying American highschool stereotypes by 2011 already, but no, there are still hundredsand thousands of them coming out every year and this is one of them.I'd watch this when I'm really bored because it does have its fun,emotional and touching parts like good movies. But overall, it's justtoo normal, too unoriginal, and the message that they are sendingacross is basically grouping high school kids into bunches withstereotypical labels, it makes the "geek" kids feel inferior, andworthless and that they can only be cool and accepted when they hangout with the popular kids. So the movie does end in kind of asemi-positive way but it still doesn't set the message straight. Anywayto sum it up, its too clichéd and too unoriginal and just like mostother movies about American high schools out there.

A few hundred years in the future, after our society burns out like alight-bulb and ultimately reinvents itself into a much kinderexperience, there will be those who will study the films of our era and-- it is possible -- these unusual Disney-esque TV treats may just endup being revered in a class (ahem) of their own. Here is the thing.When these high school soap operas work, when the actors and writersare firing on all cylinders, they work really well. I was originallyintrigued by a review in a blog which said that this film was so goodit could have been shown theatrically. Brave words indeed. The truth isthat, until the last 10 mins or so, this is an exceptional work thatcontinually engages and surprises. While the story is not new as such,the actors make it come alive and the director makes it engaging. Sortof --- for those that like to deconstruct film, which is most of us --a high school Julia Roberts vehicle (if JR had ever done a Disney,which of course she did not). The only flaw is the ending. The storyclearly overwhelmed the writers who scrambled against the clock to sortout all the twists and arcs, and it shows. Flawed, but brilliantly so.
(The 7/10 rating is just to counterweight the movie snobs who rate this movie as if it was meant to be freaking Godfather part 4.)
Honestly, everyone should chill and live a little. This movie is no masterpiece, but it was not meant to be one! The target audience are tweens - for whom this movie is perfect for. And, in fact, I myself enjoyed this piece quite a bit (at the fragile age of 17).
The idea is basic, let's be honest. However, the execution and the acting (in particular by Sarah Hyland) are definitely commendable and noteworthy. The style stands out from that of other 'mass produced' Disney Channel flicks (such as Starstruck, 16 Wishes, etc), with the occasional cuts to the footage supposedly from Josh's camera. It definitely does a lot to give the movie its own identity, and with it the chance to stand out from other, mediocre, productions.
As a side note -- this is one of those 'feel good movies'. If you are not a movie snob or a hard-ass geek, then give it a watch, even if it's just for laughs. You will (probably) enjoy the experience (if not the movie).
