RATINGS: 5.7 (IMDb).
- The film is set in a highschool, and the first shot is of a girls chest then the camera pans up to her face. She is blonde and everyone in the corridor is staring at her. The theory of the 'male-gaze' (Laura Mulvey) is reflected here, as the camera films her body as she walks. The girl has the appearance of a scream queen, however later on in the film she appears to have the personality of a final girl character.
- She is introduced as 'Mandy Lane' by a jock, and all the boys begin to speak to her. This signifies she is the main character, hence the name 'All The Boys Love Mandy Lane'.
- She gets into a car, and the next shot is of a pool party, with teenagers drinking, smoking and engaging in sexual activities.
- The opening ends here, and the film begins.
- The music playing is non-diegitic and high pitched.
