Pretty Persuasion

Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen), Ron Livingston ("Band of Brothers") and Selma Blair (Hellboy) star in this not-quite-perfect reiteration of Heathers, Election and Mean Girls. A trio of bitchy girls brings a sexual harassment case against their skeevy English teacher for the sake of publicity. The script is gleefully un-P.C. and gets points for bluntly sending up sexuality, racism, politics and more. The plot bogs down when it turns into a courtroom drama, however, and the film's increasingly preachy tone sours much of the film's more outrageous humor. At the end of the day, though, Wood emerges as a memorable hell kitten of a protagonist. 104 minutes R.
