Whatever It Takes 

Cute nice guy lusts after the class princess, completely ignoring his pretty female best friend. She, in turn, is being won over by a jerk who has convinced the nice guy to play Cyrano for him. If this sounds familiar, congratulations; it means you've seen a high school-themed comedy in the past 20 years. In fact, Whatever It Takes is such a blatant copy of so many other films, it seems to exist in some weird limbo between homage and rip-off. Director David Raynr tries desperately to capture that old John Hughes magic, but an accordion arrangement of "Melt With You" really isn't the way to go. A witty script and a few interesting characters would have been much more effective. (PG-13) Rating: 3
