Senior Year Movie Quiz – Which Character Are You?


Take this Senior Year Movie Quiz to find out which character you are. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

“Senior Year” combines two high-concept premises—the going-back-to-high-school movie and the waking-up-from-a-coma movie—in an occasionally amusing but primarily obvious comedy.

It’s a good vehicle for Rebel Wilson’s bawdy charms, as she continues to establish herself as an appealing comic lead beyond being a reliably irreverent sidekick. And one of the more inspired casting choices is Angourie Rice as Wilson’s adolescent self; she gets to be Australian, which is unusual. She accurately channels Wilson’s sly, deadpan delivery.

Both actresses are up for whatever crazy shenanigans the film throws at them, which is why “Senior Year” feels like such a waste of both of their talents. Alex Hardcastle’s feature filmmaking debut feels like a list of early 2000s references brought to life with vigor. Too often, the film feels like two hours of Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” pointing-at-the-TV meme. Mentions of CK1 cologne, Smirnoff Ice and Von Dutch jeans, and needle drops from the likes of Nelly and Avril Lavigne do transport you back in time. (However, one of the film’s biggest laughs comes from how “Senior Year” uses the Mandy Moore hit “Candy.”) But there isn’t much new knowledge about this particular period of post-millennium transition, or about the timeless and toxic allure of high school popularity.

Editor’s Picks

Stephanie, a perky, blonde, has been obsessed with this since she moved to the United States from Australia as an awkward 14-year-old. With the help of teen magazines—”Three Pounds Is the Difference Between Hot and Obese,” one headline proclaims—she gives herself a makeover, becomes captain of the cheerleading squad, dates the vapid football player, and sets her sights on the ultimate goal: prom queen.

Senior Year Movie Quiz

“Imagine how perfect the rest of their lives would be if they were this amazing in high school,” Stephanie exclaims as she stalks the pretty, young married couple down the street who were prom king and queen in their day. The script by Andrew Knauer, Arthur Pielli, and Brandon Scott Jones contains a genuine nugget of truth: the super-popular people tend to peak in high school, then stick around town to continue feeling like big fish in a small pond.

Stephanie’s dreams are dashed, however, when a daring aerial stunt at a pep rally goes horribly wrong. Tiffany, her rival and fellow cheerleader, was she to blame? Whatever the cause, Stephanie ends up in a coma in the hospital for 20 years. When she awakens, it’s 2022, and she’s befuddled by iPhones and flat-screen TVs. Her sweet, widowed father (Chris Parnell) has kept her childhood bedroom intact all this time (complete with “Clueless” and P!nk posters). Even though she is 37 years old, her first instinct is to return to high school and fulfill her destiny as prom queen.

Wilson now trims and fit dons the cheerleader uniform and poufy, green ponytail bow and joins in on all the fish-out-of-water antics. She delivers the culture shock with her trademark understatement rather than wide-eyed histrionics. But, because it’s such a clever and consistently entertaining approach, you wish she had more witty things to say than how many “Fast and Furious” movies have come out in the last two decades.

About the quiz

Nonetheless, Wilson has lively chemistry with Mary Holland (“Happiest Season”) and Sam Richardson (“Veep”) as Stephanie’s two misfit friends who have stuck by her all these years. (In particular, Holland has excellent comic timing.) Justin Hartley appears as a more mature version of her high school boyfriend, who is now married to mean-girl Tiffany (Zo Chao). It has a strong supporting cast, which makes it disappointing that they don’t get much to do other than play a couple of character traits.

And, if “Senior Year” is attempting to convey anything about how different things are for young people today, it does so with little force or clarity. Stephanie is devastated to learn that her old high school has no more popular kids or cliquey cafeteria tables, no more suggestive cheer routines, and, worst of all, no prom king and queen. This is the era when everyone gets a trophy, and people adore you if you post on social media about how concerned you are about the environment. Is “Senior Year” mocking this cultural shift as a bad thing, as “wokeness,” to use a reductive term? Or are you promoting it as a necessary evolution from an antiquated way of thinking?

It really doesn’t matter. As long as the script includes the standard cross-promotional references to shows like “Bridgerton” and “Tiger King,” it’ll be fine with Netflix’s cool kids.
