Fear 5/5 - Mainly because I HATE flying
Everytime this movie comes on cable TV or one of the premium channels, I can't help but watch. Call it a guilty pleasure. Is there anything better than watching a bunch of douchey teens being dispensed in cool and inventive ways? I think not.
Long story short, a dude gets a premonition right before his senior trip. He goes nutso in the airport and it spooks some of the kids when they head on to the plane, just before take off. They freak out and hop off. The plane done gets blowns up as soon as it takes off and the handful of kids that stayed behind survive. But then, death comes back to knock on their door.
So the absolute fun in this film is seeing how the kids get offed and the carnage that ensues. I've seen all of the films in the series and the plots are so thinly veiled: one had to do with a horrible traffic accident and the other had to do with a rollercoaster at an amusement park that goes haywire. Overall, it makes me giddy with delight to see dorky kids knocked off in over-the-top and silly ways. Plus Stiffler gets shit canned in this movie, having his head removed by a piece of shrapnel that is ran over and sent airborne by a passing train (seriously, is there not a better example of a dude that will forever be type-casted by one role than this guy?).
Apparently, there is a 3D sequel coming out called The FINAL Destination. How clever.
