Although Netflix’s newest campy revenge comedy, “Do Revenge”, is ready in a Gen-Z world, it cleverly imbues the angsty teenage drama with traditional nods to in style films from the ’90s and the early aughts. Directed and cowritten by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (“Someone Great”), “Do Revenge” tells the story of a former It woman, Drea (Camila Mendes), whose social standing at her preppy highschool takes a large hit when her intercourse tape will get leaked by her boyfriend (performed by “Euphoria“‘s Austin Abrams) whereas all her fair-weather buddies flip in opposition to her. Fueled with rage, Drea joins palms with newly transferred Eleanor (Maya Hawke) to actual revenge on those that damage them up to now.
Whereas the chaotic duo’s elaborate retaliation plans and antics are hilariously scrumptious to witness, the little Easter eggs peppered all through the plot made the entire 120-minute trip all of the extra gratifying and pleasing for teen-movie aficionados. From recreating sure beloved facets of cult-classic teen films like “Cruel Intentions” and “Mean Girls” to incorporating delicate callbacks from “Jawbreaker” and “Promising Young Women,” listed below are all of the methods during which “Do Revenge” deftly pays homage to nostalgic Y2K cinema.
