Would I watch again? - No I don't think so.

John C. Reilly plays the semi-cool, slightly creepy, misfit school principal Mr. Fitzgerald who takes an interest in Terri's life as he is frequently late for homeroom. Terri quickly realizes that the principal only meets with misfits and is upset he is in that group. We see Terri and Heather's relationship bloom during a very bad music montage. The movie lumbers along slow and steady like Terri. At times I found myself waiting for something to happen that wasn't as boring as real life. Like most Indy movies it relishes in its uncomfortable scenes, substituting real human drama, which we get enough in our own life, for exploding heads on the screen. I admit it, I am shallow and enjoy exploding heads.
If you are a big fan of Indie films and John C. Reilly this is a 5 star must see movie. The characters were unique and realistic. The dialogue flowed but was not abundantly witty or clever. There is a scene where graffiti states "Fitzgerald is a zombie." John C. Reilly played an uncredited "bathroom zombie" in "Zombieland," perhaps an inside indie joke. The movie includes some real life views and philosophy expressed through the understanding John C. Reilly. Good Indie.
F bomb, sex talk, near sex. No nudity.
Terri arrives on Blu-ray sporting a very attractive 1080p/1.85:1 transfer. Cinematography doesn't tend to be a strong point of character-driven indie flicks in general, but this one looks terrific and benefits from quite a bit of graceful visual storytelling. There were times when I was reminded of Andrea Arnold's Fish Tank, another small film which found many striking images in drab surroundings. Detail is superb throughout and blacks are deep and inky. Audio is also solid, with clean dialogue, a few moments of impressively detailed sound design and a resonant musical score (which oh-so-occasionally threatens to become too precious, but generally manages to deliver the right amount of emotional punch without becoming cloying). Supplements are limited a disposable featurette (the 10-minute "A Look Inside Terri") and some deleted scenes.

This is a unique and disturbing funny movie of teenagers that are real strange and don't fit in. They just go along lifes door without trying to fit in with the norm's.Published 23 months ago by Dana Carlson
This is a low key movie. Nothing really dramatic happens. But Terri is amazingly level and rational. He looks at life with a calm, straight face. He is a joy to watch. Read morePublished on April 17, 2013 by Amazon Customer

I liked the actors and the story line was believable -to me.
Everyone deals with life and self perception in a different way.

I probably would have rated it higher had I not seen it on a couple of "Best of the year" lists. I went in expecting to be a slightly better experience. Good film. Read morePublished on February 5, 2013 by Secret Agent
Great movie with a great cast.
