Stupid Kids Stupid Kids follows four students at Joe McCarthy High School. Jim is the new guy in town: sexy, a rebel. Judy is the popular blonde cheerleader. Neechee and Kimberly are the resident outcasts, both of whom are secretly gay. Will Jim become popular? Will Judy give her virginity to Jim? Will Neechee and Kimberly confess they're gay? As USA Today says, "Don't be misled by the title: Stupid Kids couldn't be smarter."
