Yello ? Not you typical movie ? Are you kidding ?
Well it's not a stupid teen movie that's true. But come on, people aresaying this is a good movie, there's a few steps between good and bad.
When you're telling a story (even for teens) and there's a highermessage, you don't have to explain every single part of it, stick withwhat you want to tell not what you mean. People can figure out thetopics by themselves.
Another important point about a good movie (with a "higher message") isthe following: either you're telling something that most people won'tagree with and through the characters they'll change their minds or thetopics are really common and there's the context which makes itinteresting. Here the topics are really common (even if theirimportant: teen pregnancy, authority, conformity, education,...) andthe context is high school, not really something exciting or uncommon.
I think in this case mixing social drama and comedy kind of under mindsthe real story, don't get me wrong some of the jokes are funny butdon't always fit in...
