At first, like Starla's other followers, Genevieve seems in awe of her charmed existence. But when Genevieve's story of misfortune and lost love is featured in the school newspaper, Starla feels the winds begin to change. Before she knows it, Genevieve has stolen all of her best friends, her boyfriend, her position on the cheerleading squad, and her popularity status. Starla sets out to expose Genevieve as the lying backstabber she truly is.
Opposites attract with irresistible force in this fresh, funny, feel-good comedy about two mismatched teens who scheme to make their ex's jealous. Melissa Joan Hart (TV's "Sabrina the Teenage Witch") is "picture perfect" (CBS-TV, Fort Worth) as a peppy preppy who performs the ultimate makeover on her scruffy next-door neighbor (Adrian Grenier) - and discovers this former "frog" was a prince all along! With a screenplay by Rob Thomas (Dawson's Creek), a cast featuring today's hottest young stars, plus the smash hit songs "Crazy" (Britney Spears), and "I Want It That Way" (Backstreet Boys), "Drive Me Crazy" is "worth celebrating!" (Detroit Free Press).
The film centers on Handsome (Trevor Fehrman "Clerks II," "Odd Man Out: The First Girlfriends Club") and Sammy (Elden Henson "The Butterfly Effect," "Idle Hands"), a scheming pair of best pals who cheat their ways through elementary school and junior high. Once in high school, the duo meets Victor (Mathew Lawrence "Mrs. Doubtfire" "The Hot Chick") and Applebee (Martin Starr "Knocked Up," "The Incredible Hulk") and prove that in cheating, four heads are better than two. But when their principal (Academy Award, Emmy Award and Golden Globe-winner Mary Tyler Moore "Ordinary People," TVs "Mary Tyler Moore Show") catches them, they are put on probation. With that in mind, the gang must decide whether to pull off one final, grandiose cheat at the risk of being caught and having their college dreams squelched.
