Netflix comedies are notoriously hit-or-miss. Their teenage/young adult content also falls into this bucket. Those lower expectations might just be one reason why Netflix's new teen comedy Do Revenge is lighting up social media. Do Revenge stars Camila Mendes (Riverdale, The Perfect Date) and Maya Hawke (Stranger Things, Fear Street Part One: 1994) as unlikely friends who team up to get revenge on each other's enemy. It's Strangers on a Train meets Mean Girls/Clueless, and this mixture is making Netflix watchers utterly obsessed.
The movie is funny, has bold costumes and each actor knows exactly what kind of over-the-top movie they're in. It's another big win for Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, the director/co-writer who also helmed 2019's Someone Great, and young viewers can't get over the movie's big moments. Scroll through to see what movie fans are saying about Do Revenge.

"Do Revenge is an immediate masterpiece," one last supporter posted. "An essential addition to teen movie canon that manages to pay homage to its roots while being fresh, feminist [and] f—ing funny. Stylistically subversive, it's a nuanced dissection of female rage with top tier performances. Genuinely obsessed."prev
