Editorial Reviews

Who is high school sophomore Michael Peck? Is he a model son? A band geek? A science nerd? No, he's just Peck (Keir Gilchrest, It's Kind of a Funny Story), a 5-foot-2, skinny, 104-pound weakling whom no one notices until he meets Emily (Brie Larson, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), a beautiful and popular senior, who befriends the awkward boy. When Peck's overbearing power parents (Marcia Cross and Adam Arkin) force him to compete in the school science fair, he risks becoming even more of a social outcast. But Peck has a brilliant plan: he'll create a project so outrageous it will rock the school and get even with his parents. And maybe, just maybe, he won't be just Peck to Emily anymore. Emmy-winner Camryn Manheim (The Practice) costars in this smart and edgy coming of age comedy.

In the endless parade of quirky high school coming-of-age stories, I'm not sure that "Just Peck" really stands out as a unique offering in this overworked genre. It has some charm, to be sure, with likable actors and amusing situations. But, at times, this slight story wishes to present itself as something far darker and far edgier than it actually is. Still, if you like this sort of entertainment--"Just Peck" is a solid enough proposition. I wished that it had dug a little deeper into the character psyches for there was the potential for this to be a richly unique experience. But every time the movie approached a potent realness, the screenplay backed off into more conventional comic mischief. It's hard, however, not to be amused by the film's underlying sweetness, gentle comic tone, and blissful awkwardness. While I've long maintained that quirk is the curse of modern independent cinema, there is enough heart to make this effective on its own terms.

Keir Gilchrist plays the titular character Michael Peck. If you guessed that he was a lovable misfit trying to find his place in the world--you got it on the nose! This high school sophomore has it rough. His parents (Adam Arkin and Marcia Cross) are overbearing, can you believe it? In the delightful unreality of "quirky central," they expect their son to reach the high ideals and ambitions that have made them successful by doing things like signing contracts and initiating Power Point presentations at home. It's brutal! He becomes enamored of an older and troubled bad girl (Brie Larson) and seeks to impress her with a science fair project he's been coerced into designing. Gilchrist seems to miss that his dream girl is a complete mess with bouts of anger, isolationism, and depression--but who doesn't have issues?

This is a good coming of age movie with a nice plot line. Peck leans that he is not the only one with problems and shows compassion.
