On the last day of 8th grade before their freshman year in high school, Julie has a slumber party with three best friends: Hannah, Yancy, and Farrah. As a trio, they end up having the adventure of their lives. To win the legendary high school lunch spot by the fountains, they must win a all-night scavenger hunt against their popular girl rivals. Unfortunately, Julie's mom has firm rules about the party. Her number one rule? Don't leave the house. But Julie and her friends won't let a little thing like parental authority stand in the way of social domination. To win the race, they sneak out of the house, steal a car, snatch a cute boy's boxer shorts, crash a high school dance, and torment a security guard with an inflated ego. And along the way, some of the girls might just find love. Because anything is possible at Julie's sleepover.

Did You Know?
Eileen April Boylan lost her role on
General Hospital due to a filming conflict with the movie.
When "Spongebob" sees the scavenger hunt list at Julie's house, it doesn't say "For Julie", but when Steve Phillips picks up off the floor at the dance, he reads, "…and for Julie."
Look someone smashed into the PatrolTec guy.
Oh My God…
I was recently sick with the flu and unable to move from the bed and
because the movie channel repeats movies a certain amount of times in a
twenty four hour period I ended up watching this movie 3 times.
It was the worst day of my entire life. If you wanted you could fashion
a drinking game out of this movie – take a shot for every teen cliché
they try to throw in (it comes to about 1 a minute)There were times
when i had to literally squeeze my eyes shut to block out the all the
Julie Corky is a fourteen year old girl who is 'blossoming' who
complains about how awful her life and parents are because they wont
give her a lock for her door, but they will provide her with a big ass
house and trips to Hawaii – they're monsters i know. She decides to
have a sleepover inviting 3 friends over, the redhead, the blonde and
the fat chick thrown in to somehow give confidence to all the other fat
chicks out there that they can get guys too, albeit chubby ugly guys
while the skinny girls get the male models.
The next minute the popular girl (who wont hook up with her high school
aged boyfriend – i thought the whole point to having a boyfriend was so
you could hook up with him but whatever) is organising a scavenger hunt
and as you can imagine, hijinks ensue.
Well the acting was completely awful, mika boreem who usually does so
well is so completely wooden in this movie, Alexa Vega is only mildly
attractive and unbelievable in the role of Julie Corky, the underage
girl who manages to get the hottest senior in high school (and maybe
the world) to like her after skateboarding past him in an unflattering
semi squat position. The three skater dudes who so obviously have no
idea what acting is, every time they are on screen you experience
physical pain at having to watch them try to be funny.
After the scavenger hunt they all end up at the high school dance where
Julie tries to inspire the girl taking the tickets to let her in by
utterly insulting her – let me paraphrase "I know you, you're the loser
who has to sit at the dumpster and no one talks to you cos you're so
plain and you're the ticket taker at the dance because no one in their
right mind would ever consider being with you. ever and if you don't
help me i could end up just. like. you"
However this film had only one true intentionally funny part, when the
jerk-for-even-thinking-of-kissing-his-girlfriend high school boyfriend
and his new girlfriend are trying to win the dance contest, their slow
jerky dance movements were the only bright spot in an otherwise idiotic
So potential viewers, stay away for the love of god stay away.
