    Movie Review | Matt | 18th December 2012

    Here we have a film that is simultaneously an antidote to the pop-gurning mime-fest of Glee and an offender of exactly the same kind of squeaky clean routines. One that spends as much time smiling through faux music video stage dancing as it does making fun of acapella groups for being "lame". In short, it is both refreshingly funny and teen-panderingly cheesy. Ladies and gentlemen, to use the appropriate parlance, it seems we have here what all the young kids these days refer to as a 'mash-up'.
