Digital-age Netflix comedy #realityhigh is #notgood. Use any Instagram filter you like, the story's the same ol' setup. Teen movies can be transcendent and terrific. But in the era of self-involved YouTube stars, this one designed for one specific age demographic. My dislike for the movie is almost as predictable as this rote story about a girl who goes from nerd to popular, to not popular, to eventually being popular for being her nerdy self. It's shot to look like a music video, with pretty faces, bright colors, and flashy camera moves in abundance. But it's as boring as Saturday school and as mind-numbing as a standardized test.
