You mean to tell me that you people are THAT easy to stump?  :tease:
It's hard :yellowcard:
Maybe if you remove some of them it would help us :whistle:
I can't see anything except that all the movies are actors in them and it can't be that ridiculous kind of answer :laugh:

I purposely put a lot because I thought it would help you all. Would a smaller number of such a diverse group of movies really help? If so just look at one side. Or just look at the first 10 titles.

Is it the label? There's a lot of what was Touchstone in there, which links with Disney, so then there's also a link to Miramax?

Very good guess... but no... that is not it.

I have no clue...unless the theme is just that they are all movies you own.   :hysterical:
After working 10 + hours a day for the last few days, my brain is frazzled, so I can't think of anything else.

At first I thought, when Pete announced the game, how difficult can it be? He'll watch a bunch of vampire or zobie films and that'l be the theme. Wow, was I wrong.

Pete, seems you've been terribly creative here, finding a  "theme" that manages to have 13 Going on 30, Army of Darkness and Dawn of the Dead on the same list.

Is it all movies you have seen before, but not more than once...?

Wow I'm impressed. I must admit I spent a long time looking at that list but I would never have guessed to look at all the actors and their previous roles.

Stars:
Chyler Leigh as Janey Briggs
Chris Evans as Jake Wyler
Jaime Pressly as Priscilla
Eric Christian Olsen as Austin

Plot:
"Not Another Teen Movie is a big, fat, juicy spitball lobbed, with mostly dead-on aim, at the teen-smarm clichés that have accumulated like so much earwax over the last three years." – Entertainment Weekly

Extras:
Scene Access
Audio Commentary
Trailers
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Interactive Games

Closed Captioned
Car Ride short film

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I watched this movie since I first bought it back in 2003. It is of course a spoof on teen romantic comedies. It is a fun movie... there was a couple scenes I could have done without... but over-all it is worth checking out.

This particular movie had 3 people that I recognized from TV Series. First one being Mia Krishner who I know from 2 shows. An old Saturday Morning kid series Dracula: The Series where she played Sophie, the young girl the brothers meet and helps them attempt to defeat Dracula. Then there is Eric Christian Olsen who played Jensen in the second season of Tru Calling. And finally we got Joanne Garcia, she played Cheyenne in Reba... here she plays the cheerleader with Turrets. Which was a fun gag in a few scenes through-out the movie.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
