"Required viewing" -- Entertainment Tonight

16-year old Russell is going on dates with girls while nurturing a secret relationship with star quarterback Kevin, who will do anything to prevent his teammates from finding out. Min and Terese tell everyone that they're just best friends. And then there's Ike, who can't figure out who he is or who he wants to be. Finding the truth too hard to hide, they decide to form a Geography Club, thinking nobody else would want to join. However, their secrets may soon be discovered and they could have to face the choice of revealing who they really are.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT November 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was such an amazing film, it was one of the most endearing lgbt films i've seen in a while. I really enjoyed that its made for a wider audience than other movies of its kind, making a family-friendly feature. Im glad that lgbt films are staring to target a younger teen audience, very progressive. I highly recommend this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Tickle that tinsel!", or, The Club of the New Millennium December 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
GEOGRAPHY CLUB (screened April, 2013, Writ. Ed Entin, Dir. Gary Entin, Prod. Huffington Pictures, based on the novel by Bret Hartinger, 77 minutes plus 10 minutes of credits, so you'll see anything from 75 minutes to the advertised and technically accurate 85 minutes) ~

Main cast:
Russell Middlebrook - Cameron Deane Stewart (a Texan TV bit player)
Kevin - Justin Deeley (Kentucky boy, famous for "90210")
Gunnar - Andrew Caldwell ("Thor" from "Hannah Montana" and with the talent to be the next Jack Black)
Min - Ally Maki ("Dawn" from "10 Things I Hate About You")
Kevin's dad - Scott Bakula (can there be any question??)

What if you were so hated and persecuted that you couldn't even allow yourself to truly know yourself? What if there were many others like you then, and you got tapped into their super-secret organization?

Figured that one out yet?

Los Angeles suburb-like small town California* boy Russell is not any ordinary 17-year-old boy I ever saw. He has the face and body of a combination between Adonis, Apollo and Mercury, the mind of Albert Einstein, a sweet disposition that will carry you away before you've recovered from his good looks ... and he's as gay as "gay" can possibly be. Cameron Deane Stewart (who really makes my "gaydar" thump like Area 51) is proud of his characterization of Russell as totally not what "the gay kid" would ordinarily be. (In the film there is a very obvious young gay man and Russell seems happily attracted to him yet Russell is completely different.)

*[LA suburb?

5.0 out of 5 stars True to the book and a really good movie November 24, 2013
By A. H.
Format:Amazon Instant Video
a very touching heartfelt movie. I read the book ages ago and enjoyed it and I can honestly say I enjoyed the movie just as much. Granted like 99% of all movies based on books, the book is better, though the movie was perfectly true to the book. It was really good. All the aspects of the film, acting, dialogue, character interaction, and the technical elements were grade A. Certainly not going to call it a life changing film, but certainly it shows a true portrayal of what it's like to be gay, to be in the closet, to fear coming out, peer pressure to be "normal", though I think it might have missed the mark a bit to show how hard it is; but all in all the movie got it right. It is based on a teen novel from 10 years ago, the first book in the Russell Middlebrook series. If you watch the movie, you should definitely read the lambda award winning series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Too Earnest Movie March 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Geography Club is a decently shot, mostly nicely acted film, but its weak script, stereotypical characterizations, and indulgence in feel good platitudes suggest that it is a movie about adolescents best viewed by them. It resembles one of those "educational" TV films made in the olden days for afternoons when teenagers might view them to their profit. It is also a bit like a romance novel, not in any of the details of the plot, but in the way it does not much trouble itself with what one might call reality. Its plot is not all happy news. The boy (spoiler alert) does not get the boy in the end. But no character in it is deeply or complexly conceived or observed. Geography Club lacks substance. It is entertaining, so far as it goes, but it goes nowhere near far enough into its people or story.

The two blonde girls are troublingly stereotyped as addle-brained and aggressively sexual. The football player has a curious Southern accent neither of his parents nor anyone else in the movies speaks with. Odd little bits of plot, for example, the fact that the quarterback has a gay uncle who has a boyfriend he wants his family to meet, are left mostly undeveloped. Why on why does his mother talk at such length about baking a cake? I don't know a high school in this world that would put up with its sex educator, if that is what she is, especially since the plot demands that the high school where she works be in many ways intolerant. (The gay kids are all fearful of coming out. The arc of the film is from that fear to their openly doing so.) Her walking around in class barefoot would be the least of her problems with the principal. She is intended, it appears, to be seen as a role model of sorts, but she talks and dresses like a new age self-help guru.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah, for a change. . . February 17, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Ah, for a change, a gay-themed film that is funny, well-written, has strong production values, good acting performances, and a believable storyline. Is it really so hard to produce these types of films? Apparently so, because there are so many weak gay-themed films out there. Cameos by Ana Gasteyer and Scott Bakula were delightful. Nikki Blonsky, an under-used and under-appreciated actor, was deliciously cast against type as a (slightly) angry young lesbian. She's fantastic.
