Extra! Extra! This Movie Sucks!
Establishing shot of Keri's house, with Mokthar sitting outside with a paper bag, and then we're inside, as Kim is badly acting her way through a scene wherein she convinces Keri's dad to do some work on her arms, even though (a) I'd think some parental consent would be required for a minor, and (b) like Kim hasn't been to Keri's house a bunch of times, and we're to believe that Keri wouldn't have introduced her only friend to her dad who WORKS AT HOME? I'd say this movie can blow me, but it'd probably be really bad at it. Kim completely unsubtly looks at her watch...
...and outside, Mokthar looks at his watch and says, "Showtime." Yes, that is one of the many networks that passed on this dreck. He rings the doorbell, and Keri's dad goes to answer it. Mokthar keeps him out there for a little while with a story about a new restaurant that's giving out free food samples and bad puns. Inside, Kim finds the file she's looking for and snaps a photo.
Keri pulls up to school in a sweet VW bug, and parks in the handicapped zone. Kim watches nervously. Whatever.
Keri holds egg-cream court at her reserved table with a bunch of non-speaking extras. I guess it's convenient that she talks so much, if only for budget reasons. She and Kim share an awkward look at each other as stupid strummy-strummy-la-la (tm Pamie) music plays. We get a montage of all the "good times" Kim and Keri shared, and recappers normally love montages, but given that I have to relive parts of this vomitous movie, I'm thinking the price of this one is a little steep. Then we're in the classroom, where Teddy gives Kim a baleful look, and then there's a badly-done montage of the two of them, which includes the times he told her off, and if Kim's remembering those moments fondly, she's even dumber than I thought. The montage becomes ever-increasingly random and pointless, unless the ABC Family Channel detests its viewers, which given my experience with organizations with the word "family" in their names actually seems like a pretty safe bet. Kim gets home to find Peg outside. Kim apologizes about the tabloid, and says she wishes they could run one giant retraction. If she's speaking on behalf of the network execs, I'd say too little, too late.
Some girl who looks like Michelle Trachtenberg's alien cousin is badly telling Keri about what Bitchony and Bitchory have been up to when Kim enters the newspaper office. She spunkily waves an envelope at Keri. Shut up, Kim. Macros rule, don't they?
