This is a completely rote teen sex comedy which is very amusing at points and actually quite well-attuned to adolescent male psychology, in my opinion.

Another pretty bad National Lampoon film. This, is a bit better than most of the others in the low budget recent catalogue. The acting, at least, is not bad.

"Casi Ilegal" De todo menos chistosa queriendo ser una versión remangada y reducida de "American Pie" sin éxito alguno.

Every since the "Vacation" movies dried up, the folks at National Lampoon have been all too eager to slap their name on any old piece of junk hoping to entice people into renting it. The latest is called "Barely Legal", and it's a disgraceful film that jumps on the gross-out humor bandwagon but the writers forgot to make any of it funny.

There are a lot of jokes about masturbation and semen, which is I think the biggest indicator of how low the movie sinks. It's sort of a B-movie variation on "Risky Business", with the porn industry subbing for the brothel, but there's no wit or anything sexy about this. Just dumb humor that aims for the lowest common denominator every time.

Most of the girls are hot, especially newcomer Sarah-Jane Potts, but that's where their contribution to the film ends. The three lead boys aren't household names, but they all vaguely reminded me of other young actors. Horatio Sanz manages to keep his career on track after "Boat Trip", that is to say he's still embarrassing himself. But faring far worse than him is Amy Smart simply because she had farther to fall. Her career began promisingly enough, but her appearance here makes you wonder how it all went wrong so fast.

Another notable career nosedive belongs to director David Mickey Evans, who started out making the sweet and innocent "Sandlot". Now he gives us this dismal picture. "Barely Legal" is a depressing film, full of cliches and sick but completely laugh-less jokes. There is a way to make this type of humor work, but this isn't aspiring to be anything more than just a rental on a Saturday night because you got to the store late and everything else on the shelf was gone.

Meh. It was kinda a blah movie, it got funnier at the end, but that was about it.

Sure, at first glance it seems like another crappy, unrealistic, low budget movie. But you gotta compare it to other straight to DVD films, not Oscar winning films. It follows the correct formula for teen comedies: shenanigans and 20-something-year-olds who try to pass off as underage teens who struggle to get laid with very hot girls (who are also 20-something-year-olds who try to pass off as teens). I'd say it's pretty complete.
