’90s Teen Film Easter Eggs in Do Revenge

Although Netflix’s newest campy revenge comedy, “Do Revenge”, is about in a Gen-Z world, it cleverly imbues the angsty teenage drama with basic nods to fashionable films from the ’90s and the early aughts. Directed and cowritten by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (“Somebody Nice”), “Do Revenge” tells the story of a former It woman, Drea (Camila Mendes), whose social standing at her preppy highschool takes an enormous 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 precise revenge on those that damage them previously.

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 experience all of the extra gratifying and satisfying for teen-movie aficionados. From recreating sure beloved elements of cult-classic teen films like “Merciless Intentions” and “Imply Ladies” to incorporating delicate callbacks from “Jawbreaker” and “Promising Younger Ladies,” listed below are all of the methods by which “Do Revenge” deftly pays homage to nostalgic Y2K cinema.
