If you’ve had it up to here with movies that end with a smooch at a high school prom, then this is the pic you’ve been cry­ing out loud for. One of those spu­ri­ous spoofs – à la Scary Movie – that guns down ev­ery cliche in the teen- fl ick text­book and keeps on fi ring un­til ev­ery pos­si­ble joke has been shot to bits. The last laugh here is handed to ’ 80s teen queen Molly Ringwald, in a choice cameo as a bitchy fl ight at­ten­dant. A pin­na­cle of pop- cul­ture per­fec­tion. It was here Quentin Tarantino es­tab­lished his cre­den­tials as a true movie mas­ter, tak­ing the “dime store” crime nov­els of the 1950s and turn­ing them into some­thing en­tirely mod­ern. Stars John Tra­volta, Uma Thur­man, Bruce Wil­lis

and Sa­muel L. Jack­son. blood­ied id­iots. A pass­ably scary teen slasher fl ick that gets your blood fl ow­ing. It’s July 4. Four young friends are cel­e­brat­ing their fi nal sum­mer to­gether. Driv­ing home, they hit some­thing. A body lies on the road. Panic en­sues. What will hap­pen to their up­com­ing ca­reers? The four quickly make a pact to throw the corpse in the ocean and never speak of it again. A year later, back home once more, each gets an anony­mous note from some­one who knows … En­ter­tain­ing no- brainer with Kate Hud­son and Matthew McConaughey in a tale of de­cep­tive dat­ing games.
