"Geek Charming" made its debut on November 11, 2011 and was watched by 4.9 million viewers, the fifth largest number for a cable show that entire week. The film is an adaptation of Robin Palmer's book "Geek Charming" and is directed by Jeffrey Hornaday ("Shout", "Madonna: Ciao, Italia! Live from Italy") and written by Elizabeth Hackett and Hilary Galanoy.
The film stars Sarah Hyland ("Modern Family") as Dylan Schoenfield, a rich, spoiled, self-centered and popular girl at Woodlands Academy. She and her friends love sporting the latest fashion but also dislikes anything that isn't cool. Sarah's goal is to become this year's "Blossom Queen" and with her popularity, she hopes she can win!
One day, while Dylan and friends were going to eat lunch, film club president and fellow student Josh Rosen (played by Matt Prokop, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year", "Furry Vengeance") accidentally runs into her and needless to say, all three girls get food all over them.
Sarah cries out that popular people should not have to be in the same school as geeks.
Meanwhile, Josh is in a lot of pressure as he needs to submit his film/documentary for the school's film festival. After watching and observing Dylan, he decides to create a movie about the life of a popular girl and to explore if she's actually that shallow of a person.
Dylan is delighted to be a star of a film but sees it as an opportunity for her to get more votes and be crowned Blossom Queen.
As the two try to make a film, Josh is turned off by her diva-attitude as they both fight over who's move it is.Read more ›

If you are someone who really loves Geek Charming and is also a fan of Shake it Up, this DVD is definitely a worthy buy!
Dylan is a "diva" to the extreme, especially so during the first 15 or 20 minutes. I actually considered giving up on the movie during this time--just because she was so over-the-top about everything--however, I'm glad that I stuck with it. After the initial bit of time that is spent setting up the story, the main plot finally comes into play and the characters really begin to shine. I was quite surprised, in a good way, at how I got sucked into it.
I liked how the movie showed that there are real people underneath the stereotyped "popular" and "geek" personalities, which is something that's often easy to forget. Dylan started out being ultra annoying, but over the course of the movie her real personality slowly surfaced and I actually ended up liking her. As for Josh...geek or not, I liked him from the start. He was just a nice guy, with a common-sense way of looking at things.
I'm always a sucker for movies that bring together the unlikeliest of people, and this one certainly falls into that category. I liked how Dylan and Josh formed a friendship without even realizing it, and how they both started to pick up mannerisms and slang words from each other, just from spending time together. Oh, and I also wanted to mention Josh's film teacher: I loved his accent! :) Anyway, if you're looking for a clean, feel good movie, Geek Charming is definitely worth a look!

Hullo, grown-up. Geek Charming may at first come across as generic Disney fare, strictly viewing fodder for middle graders and teenyboppers. Read morePublished 10 months ago by H. Bala
