'Teen Spirit' is unspectacular but decent
“Teen Spirit” is a decent film. There isn’t anything spectacular about it, but there is some dark comedy and a milque toast cast. The song “Typical,” however is anything but. It’s got a pop feel to it and is what one might expect from the Disney studios star creating juggernaut.
Basically, “Teen Spirit” tells the story of would be prom queen Amber who is electrocuted when she reaches for her crown. She ends up in limbo and is told that she must make the least popular girl into the prom queen within one week or she will go to Hell.
The film has the unattractive girl who is actually cute but dresses artistically, and the film does recognize the fact that it is playing with a usual story cliché. It has the dress montage, the change of character and the redemption.
The standout performance goes to Lindsey Shaw, who plays the least popular girl in school, Lisa. When Amber, the popular girl, takes over her body, Shaw must act out both characters, and she does so very well. It was really like watching Amber and Lisa fight for the body. The personalities were distinctly drawn in a Sméagol/Gollum way.
With so many elements of different films rolled into “Teen Spirit,” it is hard to see how it could remain as cohesive as it did. A pleasant romp that provides no real surprises, and that isn’t a bad thing for those who are expecting this comedy to be what it is.
