Description

Hilariously profane, this teens-gone-wild comedy focuses on lovelorn teen Neil and his best friend Gilbert. After Neil misses his chance with the girl he likes and experiences a surprise physical transformation, the two friends have 24 hours to contend with drug-peddling swingers, racist cops, and a Porsche-driving neighbor (played by Damon Wayans, Jr.) with a penchant for robbing quickie marts as they make their way to a major house party where Neil hopes to have one last opportunity to reveal his affections.
