You can expect a review that more specifically articulates what I loved so much about the perfectly-escalating high school film soon, but for now you can take a look at the clip below that showcases one of the film’s more Jackassian, lowest-common-denominator gags, as good ole Martin Klebba (the world’s fastest little person!) tumbles out of an oven and gives every nearby testicle what for.
