DETENTION [2011]

Take Scream, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World & Mean Girls, then add in a truckload of '90's pop culture references and a heavy dose of gory music video weird, toss it all in a blender set to liquify and you get Joseph Kahn's stupid but insanely entertaining Detention.  
Sure it's a mess of a plot, not very well acted and ridiculously unfocused but it's funny, insane and self-aware enough to warrant at least one viewing for anyone that knows who Angela Chase is.  

2½ unfortunate abductions of time-travelling bears out of 5
