Nomination Year: 1998
SYNOPSIS:  Description of the movie's "plot" goes here.

"Wanna Run That By Me Again?"

A Twisted Communist Plot
The Commies are inducing America's wayward youth to vandalize their (the youth's) schools.

Acting Appropriately Stupid

What Does "Shot a Cop" Mean in Your Kooky Youth Slang?
"We just shot a cop."
(In other words, we have no compunctions against killing.)
"That does it, then. I'm calling the police right now."
Bang!
(Sigh.)

Crummiest Ending

Baby or Audience?
They recap the whole film and end with a baby crying.

Worst Acting

I Would Rather Not Get My Jolleys, Thanks
Another scene in which Judge Clara (I. Stanford Jolley) sentences the perps. What range (negligible)! What expressions (wooden)! What glances off-camera (toward the script)! What a mess (totally)!

Worst Picture

The Sentence: Life without the Possibility of Plot
Judge Clara passes sentence on his friends (very stiltedly and with many a look at the script). The verdict: Bad Parenting (and Bad Acting and Bad Writing and....)!
