The review of this Movie prepared by Jennifer Sheets

Kate Spencer has recently moved to a new town as a result of another unhappy breakup between her mother and a boyfriend. Kate has seen so many of her mother's boyfriends abandon her mother that she has taken to calling all of them "Skip". Therefore, she has a very cynical and amused attitude when she realizes that John Tucker, basketball star and local god at her new high school, is juggling three different girlfriends. The three girls, a vegan teen activist, an honors student and a cheerleader inadvertently discover each other in gym class and get into a fight, landing in detention together with Kate.

The girls concoct a plan to get revenge on John Tucker, by discrediting him, embarrassing him, and making him undateable. However, most of their plots only seem to add to John's popularity. When they decide to get back at him by breaking his heart by setting him up with Kate, their plans may go awry as Kate finds herself falling for his irrestible charm.
