It was really, really cliche. And random, on top of that.
There's a part where Ricky's done talking to Jessi in the kitchen, and then when he's walking to his car he just gets jumped for no reason. Dale's actor is horrendous. So is his posse. The most memorable thing that dude does is get verbally pwned by Dallas and die.
The only reason I found it okay at the end was because Ricky's reaction to the death of Jessi is one of the film's few good moments.
(BTW, I'm 18 and even if I could relate it was just badly executed.)
