This soundtrack is straight off the late ’90s top 40 countdown, with appearances by both Britney Spears AND the Backstreet Boys. All right! There’re also a couple of appearances by a real live band, The Donnas, a la 10 Things I Hate About You. Do movies even have real bands in them anymore? I haven’t seen anything in theaters since Harry Potter, so I have no idea (babysitters are expensive!). If they don’t, they totally should! It makes the portrayal of real high school America so much more realistic (ha).
When it came out I was 10-years-old and my babysitter took me to see it because she thought I’d “Really like it.” Turns out, she was right! But that’s because I had a bucket of popcorn and a pack of gummi bears to shut me up. Now, let’s take a look back at some of the amazing jokes that my too young and too stupid self totally didn’t get.
