    ….no offense Perez, but when they said huge they weren't referring to ratings.



  3. 3

    I just wish Drake/Jimmy made an appearance.

  10. 10

    They picked the wrong day to premiere this in Canada… Well, sort of, only because the Jonas Brothers are in Toronto that day, and are going to playing to a sold out crowd of 70,000 which you can bet are 85% of the degrassi viewing crowd of Ontario!

  12. 12

    Nearly 1 million isn't exactly huge.



  14. 14

    EAT SHIT AND DIE HORSE FACE

    THE ONLY THING HUGE ABOUT THAT CRAP WAS YOUR ENORMOUS HEAD



  15. 15

    you do realize majority of people who watch The N, and degrassi specifically are all overweight gay teens…so go perez.way to reach out to your demographic. your message in the show is really awesome too….inspirational.



  16. 16

    I hope you dont think it was because of YOU people tuned in to watch this garbage…And "1 million" people isnt really something to be jumping up and down for mario.
    xD



  17. 17

    The fact is they can't measure ratings that low so they just throw out a 1.0 rating and 1 million viewers.



  18. 18

    Re: karencarpenter – #2 lol



  19. 19

    I loved the movie it was soo good… im surprised to find out that it aired here before canada considering its a canadian show..



  20. 20

    I am a Degrassi fan, moreso the older seasons than all these new kids like clare and riley. So I was looking forward to this movie. It really should have been a 4 part episode, it wasnt that impressive. Very unrealistic. When Paige said no one would call her back because of the stuff You wrote, perez, HA! If that were true, Lohan would never get a job in a million years.



  21. 21

    haha i LOVED DEGRASSI GOES HOLLYWOOD! it was ridiculous. nobody in that movie took themselves too seriously, and that's what made it great. it went there.



  22. 22

    i watched it. would have been better had there been less of that blonde bitch. she is SOOOOO ugly. perez seemed like he was acting. he couldn't even play himself well. really bad.



  23. 23

    I saw it and Perez you sucked. And no Jimmy/Drake is not in it which made me mad I want to knw if the stem cell trial worked on him.



  24. 24

    and what the hell does "aye" mean? bwahahahahaha!!!!! idiot!



  25. 25

    this movie was great! it fits right along with the show, which imo is the best teen drama on television. yall haters are just stupid idiots who have nothing better to do with your life then bash on that which you do not know.



  26. 26

    hey fuckko, its EH not AYE.



  27. 27

    Perez you are officially a a-list movie star.Your going to have to give up your website to star along the lines of Robert pattiinson.Julia Roberts,Zac Efron,Will Farrell…..etc…Your probably the hottest actor out there right now..



  28. 28

    I bet it did get high ratings considering the fact that in EVERY c0mmerical break f0r The N played the movie previews like 3 time PER commercial break and re-ran the m0vie like all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday…..



  29. 29

    I love degrassi and im 28 years old. But the movie was not so good. The episodes are way better!! the last season they had was not too good though. The show was better when there was more drama. All the episodes with the nerd click are lame!



  30. 30

    Perez will whore himself out to anybody and I mean ANYBODY.



  31. 31

    And of course you think everyone tuned in just to see you and your over-inflated ego.



  32. 32

  33. 33

  41. 41

  51. 51

    i watched it like 2 nights ago loved it…



  52. 52

    saw it! it was great! u were so cute in it Perez!!!



  53. 53

    Well, to all you people insulting Degrassi: 1. Go sit on an axe and rotate; 2. Go watch the old seasons, because you OBVIOUSLY haven't seen the goods that is Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High!!
    And a note to Perez: this is actually the second movie in the Degrassi brand - or name, at least. The first was during one of the last seasons of Degrassi High. I haven't seen it, but I'm told it is amazing. Degrassi was so amazing because it was real; the show forced teens to think about important issues that they may not have otherwise thought about. This 'new generation' lives up to that name, but nowhere near to the same standards. It's fluff - just as most of the carbon copy teen soaps out there.
    As a matter of fact, BRING BACK RE-RUNS OF THE OLD DEGRASSI!!!!!!!



  54. 54

    Hey Perezzy love you long time but darl this is not the first Degrassi Movie - do you not remember the mid 90's classic - schools out when Wheels made Lucy blind and Caitlyn spoke that classic line to Joey Jeremiah - "You're Fooking Tessa Campanelli". Gee they were great times. Thank god for the dvd's. I know Degrassi got me through my school days.



  55. 55

    its spelled eh-not aye :)



  56. 56

    Degrassi doesn't need Perez. They should edit him out before the official premiere.



  57. 57

    WTF Degrassi is a Canadian show that no one watches anyways. the fact that it broadcasts in the States is just embarrasing. I saw one clip of Degrassi Goes Hollywood and
