Review
Jeri Blank is a 47-year-old crack whore fresh from the joint and ready to return to her childhood home. Sound like a silly premise? It certainly is in the hands of comic geniuses Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. In order to resurrect her comatose father, Jeri is instructed to go back to high school... and excel. So the ridiculous Jeri and her underutilized libido hit the halls, looking for fresh meat and navigating the hell that is Flatpoint High School, a place not short of racial and sexual innuendo. A cast of Hollywood cameos lends even more cred to this goofy little gem including Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Allison Janney, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. But it's Sedaris' Playdoh face and gift of physical humour that make this movie as bizarre and funny as it is... though not to everyone's taste.
