As a cartoon addict, I end up watching a lot of shows for which the advertising is entirely child-directed, which I tend to ignore. But when I saw a teen nick show preview that looked suspiciously Breakfast Club-y, I had to check it out. So far, they’ve done an amazing job of sanitizing the movie, yet still being funny. Instead of dandruff, it’s glitter that the Ally Sheedy character shakes onto her drawing (she puts the glitter in her hair, so it’s closer than it sounds). The geeky guy has a t-shirt that says “Neo Maxi Zoom Dweebie” on it. The Vice Principle is wearing the exact outfit.
And now, they are doing the “are you a virgin” scene, only it’s “have you ever had a Taco….are you a, VEGAN?”.
Why do I suspect they won’t do a pot smoking scene. Nickelodeon won’t do that on television =p
LOL, the geeky guy does the “you’re so conceited” line, without any context. One for the parents.
So they are substituting tacos for sex AND weed. Victoria shoves the grocery bag sized bag of tacos, in the geeky kids pants…I foresee a burning tacos joke in the future, but I was wrong. Time constraints of a 30 min show I suppose.
When she’s locked in the janitor’s closet, there’s a ladder, with a sign that says “Secret Passageway To Library”.
“You ever had a taco around here?”
“Robbie’s trying to tell me that sometimes you and he crunch the corn shell together”
I wonder what the Judd Nelson-alike usually looks like. He’s doing a really good job of having the attitude, well the g-version of the attitude, limited by the fact that he’s not the title character, who’s getting Judd’s best scenes in the original. The clothes are spot on.
Robbie does the fish gobble where smoke would be, if the taco was a joint. It must seem incomprehensible to someone who has never seen the original.
And he does the “so conceited” line again.
Instead of the lipstick boobie trick, she can fire a little bow and arrow with her feet. Well, it’s teen nick.
They are doing a lot of the dancing exactly like the original.
But they do the makeover on the geeky boy…does he usually try to get touchy-feely with the judd-nelson alike?
Well, I laughed.
