Chris played the role of Jake Wyler, a popular jock at John Hughes High School, who takes on a bet from his friend Austin (Eric Christian Olsen) that he can transform the ugly girl Janey (Chyler Leigh) into a prom queen before prom night. Jake's evil sister Catherine (Mia Kirshner) is trying to stop Jake from succeeding just as Priscilla (Jaime Pressly), Jake's cheerleading ex-girlfriend.

The scene we all know and love is the scene where Chris only wears whipped cream, cherry's and a banana. He said about this in an interview:"Yeah, I had to kind of warn my mom and grandma about that scene. They gave me this bag-like thing to wear - it was all I had on in the scene.

In 2002 Not Another Teen Movie was nominated three times at the MTV Movie Awards for Best Cameo (Molly Ringwald), Best Kiss and Best Line. The movie was also nominated by the Teen Choice Awards that same year.
