This gory follow-on to the original finds Gabriel (Christopher Walken) being released by Lucifer, thus allowing Gabriel to continue his battle against humans and good angels (since God seems to favor those over the bad angels).

This story, based on Laura Hillenbrand's book, involves four depression-era underdogs–horse owner Charles Howard (Jeff Bridges), trainer Tom Smith (Chris Cooper), jockey (Tobey Maguire), and horse Seabiscuit–all of which become winners when Seabiscuit is named 1938's "Horse of the Year." Great racing scenes. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Now we're making spoofs of spoofs of teen slash movies, but this one has a couple of fun moments and originality–like the character names. Hagitha Utslay (Tiffany-Amber Thiessen) is a reporter for Empty-V News and is now covering the murder rampage going on at the high school. Not only is the killer inept, but so is the security man–Doughy (Tom Arnold)–who is hired to protect the students. Got my drift?

In this take-off on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," Snow–oops–Sydney White was brought up by her plumber father (John Schneider) and his construction workers after her mother died. Thus, tomboy Sydney was more interested in tools and comic books than social graces when she headed off to the college that her mother had attended, and joined her mother's sorority. She immediately becomes popular at school, resulting in the nasty sorority president, Rachel Witchburn (Sara Paxton), going to great lengths to get Sydney out of the sorority because of Rachel's loss of "most popular" student–and the threat of losing her boyfriend, Tyler (Matt Long), to Sydney. But Sydney doesn't care for the sorority girls, so she moves out and finds a home with seven dorky outcasts (whose personalities are suspiciously similar to the seven Dwarfs). The team plots to take on the evil Rachel and her elitist cohorts and make the school better for all.
