Few song intros have the transportive power of hearing Nelly proclaim, “It’s hot in… so hot in HERRE.” Suddenly it’s 2002 again, and the DJ at whatever club or bar mitzvah or prom you’re at is blasting the year’s most infectious party anthem. A horde of Aéropostale-clad eighth graders is shouting, “good gracious, ass is bodacious” and screaming about taking off their clothes. The air is thick with the scent of Princess by Vera Wang.
Whether you yearn for the days when people cared about the VMAs or you experience something akin to PTSD at the thought of low-rise jeans, chances are you have very visceral memories of the early aughts. And in her new film Senior Year, out Friday on Netflix, Rebel Wilson taps into that generational nostalgia with a feel-good comedy that takes her back to high school and back to the year of our Lord 2002.
Directed by Alex Hardcastle, Senior Year follows Stephanie Conway (Wilson), a woman who wakes up from a 20-year coma and decides to go back to high school to finish her senior year. As a teen played by Mare of Easttown’s Angourie Rice, Steph was the quintessential queen bee: a beautiful, popular cheer captain on the verge of losing her “bottom-half virginity” to her spiky-haired beau. Now 37 years old, she is desperate to have the perfect end to high school that she missed out on because of a cheerleading stunt gone horribly wrong. And in order to have the perfect senior year, she must be crowned prom queen, of course.
