Overview

David Nutter made his directorial debut with this fantasy thriller, attempting a switch on The Stepford Wives premise. The Clark family moves from Chicago to Cradle Bay, and Steve Clark (James Marsden) is cautioned by Gavin Strick (Nick Stahl) about the separating factions at the local high school, where the Blue Ribbons, a club of robotic perfect students, rule. Gavin claims a conspiracy is afoot, and sure enough, he turns into an ultra-perfect himself. Rachel Wagner (Katie Holmes) joins Steve in investigating, and they soon suspect school psychiatrist Dr. Caldicott (Bruce Greenwood), a neuropharmacology specialist. The soundtrack contrasts alternative rock with tunes by Barry Manilow, Wayne Newton, and Olivia Newton-John.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
In this clever reworking of The Stepford Wives, a sinister high school guidance counselor turns rebellious teenagers into a zombie-like tribe of sexually repressed, model students known as "the Blue Ribbons." But drop-dead gorgeous James Marsden, the new kid in school, soon figures out that there are dark forces at work behind his perfect classmates' squeaky clean facades. Katie Holmes (Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Dawson's Creek) co-stars as the good "bad girl" who helps him battle the forces that are transforming their high school into a conformist horror show, and X-Files director David Nutter gives the film an air of stylish gloom. High school has never been scarier.

Disturbing Behavior 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Accurate Every day parents and schools force teens to take behavioral modification drugs. Use any means to suppress the behaviors of teens. This movie takes that to the next level. Using direct brainwashing and mind control chips to turn troubled teens into A - Students. The side affects are that any time such a kid gets turned on he or she turns homicidal. Steve and Rachel are the two main characters and about to be violated such a manner. The clueless parents don't ask questions,. They don't care how it happens, all they care about is their troubled teens start dressing right and get good grades. Steve and Rachel are forced to fight, not just for their lives, but for their free will. This dramatically demonstrates the risk of being a teen, and the danger of adult ignorance and arrogance.
