Teens will find much to enjoy in this forgettable little comedy that takes a youthful spin on Pygmalion (when oh when will these classics-adapted-for-teens ever stop? At least Clueless and Ten Things I Hate About You were clever).  overdoes the devoted geek bit as a young woman romanced by hunky prep   He has been dared by pal  to take Cook to the prom and see if he can make a ‘doable’ chick out of her. Important teenage issues such as prom night sex and the ability to do performance art in front of your peers are dealt with intelligently, but only when you compare the film to a low-grade issue of Teen Beat. Still, it is colourful and fun for the youngsters, and the characters are all likeable.
