American High School (2008/Anchor Bay DVD)
Sound: C+ Extras: C- Feature: C-
few good films, most theatrical and telefilms treat school and education like
it is a joke and the mostly unfunny American
High School (2008) including one gals dad who cannot grow up and wants to
be with her friends sexually. This is
among the tired would-be shock humor offered in this lame formula mess that has
a few chuckles at best and could have been funny if the makers were ambitious
and actually tired, instead of another by-the-numbers wreck.
all, this one is a waste of time.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is fuzzy throughout with motion blur and
color has its issues too. The Dolby
Digital 5.1 mix is not that good either, stretching basic stereo in bad
ways. Extras include cast/crew audio
commentary, trailer, TV spot and Deleted Scenes with more optional comments.
