American Teen Review


Bad
American Teen, the new documentary about teen life directed by Nanette Burstein, lends credence to the somewhat comforting yet completely ludicrous idea that teen comedies, from John Hughes through American Pie, have high school life completely pegged. Mounted on the shoulders of four teenagers living in East Nowhere, Indiana (okay, okay, it's Warsaw, Indiana), Burstein excavates the meta-dramatic senior year of the four pre-collegiates, peppered equally with family squabbles and a carousel of break-ups, hook-ups, and almost-relationships. The four sociological archetypes are covered perfectly: A Jock, a Bitch, a Nerd and a Wild Card. As always, the insinuation is that they all have a lot more in common in the end then they realized.
