A contemporary update on George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion"
for the 90's kids.
The high school jock takes on a bet to turn the geekiest
girl at school into one of the cool kids and away from a life of nerdism and poetry, which are the only attributes of ugly people (apparently).
Moderately entertaining for an MTV audience. Its
biggest flaw is that she really isn't all that, and neither is he. In fact, their characters are incredibly dull.
