By Edward L Zimmerman TOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 12, 2012
Format: DVD
Hollywood likes to openly proclaim that it embraces American values, but, if GENERAL EDUCATION is any indication, I'm not entirely certain Tinseltown even recognizes what sentiments average Americans embrace any longer. Granted, children are always going to have some `secrets' they hold out on their parents, but why glamorize it? Also, parents are always going to want something better for their children, but do they seriously force them to pursue dreams that'll more likely drive their kids into bankruptcy instead of having a life of personal fulfillment? I could go on, but methinks I don't want to spoil too much of this political claptrap in the first paragraph!

(Note: the following review will contain minor spoilers necessary for the discussion of characters and plot. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review spoiler-free, then skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final words. However, if you're entirely accepting of some hints at things to come, then read on.)

Levi Collins (played by Chris Sheffield) appears to have a bright future. He's just "won" an athletic scholarship for tennis that should give him the `full ride' for tuition, but, as luck would have it, he has one problem: he hasn't yet successfully graduated from high school!

And therein lies the central problem of GENERAL EDUCATION: very little of what we're shown makes any sense. Only a few minutes after being granted a full scholarship by a sexually suggestive college recruiter (???), we're told Levi has to "compete" in a tournament and "win" in order to obtain it. Despite the fact that the script assures us that Levi is a tennis pro - even descended from other tennis pros in his family history - we're never shown him playing AT THE LEVEL of a tennis pro.

Tom Morris has worked on quite a few films as a camera operator and has even written and directed several short films. But this time Morris joins writers Elliot Feld and Jaz Kalkat as co-writer and director of the coming-of-age comedy "General Education".

The film would star veterans Larry Miller ("Pretty Woman", "10 Things I Hate About You", "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"), Janeane Garofalo ("24″, "Mystery Men", "Ratatouille") and feature Chris Sheffield ("Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon", "The Rookie"), Maiara Walsh ("Switched at Birth", "Cory in the House", "Desperate Housewives", "Mean Girls 2″), Skylan Brooks ("Seven Pounds", "Our Family Wedding") and Elaine Hendrix ("The Parent Trap", "90210″, "Superstar").

VIDEO:

"General Education" is presented in 1080p High Definition (2:34:1). Outdoor scenes are quite vibrant showcasing wonderful contrast while indoor scenes were good. For the most part, "General Education" does look very good on Blu-ray!

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"General Education" is presented in English 5.1 DTS-HD MA. The soundtrack is primarily dialogue and music driven. But there is probably a few scenes where the surround channels and LFE are used (scenes with fireworks). But for the most part, dialogue and music are crystal clear and primarily front and center channel driven.

SPECIAL FEATURES

"General Education" comes with the following special features:

Audio Commentary - Featuring audio commentary by Tom Morris and the co-writers and producers of the film: Jaz Kalkat, Kevin Liang, Elliot Feld and sound editor Tim Hoogenakker.
Outtakes - (5:39) Outtakes from "General Education".

The movie was okay and had some funny scenes, but at best, it was just okay. I should have waited until it came on public TV.

This is a fairly good and quirky comedy about a guy who has to repeat a class in summer school while dealing with his friends and others.
