by Walter Chaw The first thing one notices about Joel Gallen's Not Another Teen Movie is that it appears to have been shot on 16mm stock off the back of someone's truck--grainy and shaky, it's easily the cheapest-looking major studio release of the year. After a brief prologue in which our heroine Janey Briggs (Chyler Leigh, whose character's name appears to spoof "Jason Biggs," the star of American Pie--that's as clever as the film gets) is caught by her entire extended family and clergy en flagrante with a giant mechanized dildo, the second thing one notices about Not Another Teen Movie is that it has no sense of timing, no sense of shame, and no reason for being.
