The most entertaining aspect of the film would have to be the characters. By the end of the film, it seems as though each character is or was a bully at some point. Of course, this is excluding Martha 'Dumptruck' Dunnstock, the poor girl who is the center of much of the school's bullying. I must also add that Christian Slater's character is one of the most unique characters I have ever seen. At times, he reminded me of the Joker from The Dark Knight while at other times he reminded me of Johnny from The Room. This is relating one of the worst acting performances in history with one of the best. Therefore, I am still unsure of whether I liked Slater's character, but I am sure that he kept my attention throughout the film.
For such a shallow script, the film delves into some deep concepts such as bullying and suicide. Most of the dialogue in the film is filthy insults being thrown from one character to another, but at times there are some very deep lines that just don't seem to fit along with the others. It is as though the writer went from creating a film for teens to attempting to create an Oscar nomination for himself. Overall, the product was enjoyable but tonally unclear.
The Bottom Line: This film is great and awful, has a strong and weak cast due to its poor but powerful script.
