Amd what can I say about Gregory Smith that has not been said before?This young man is a most wonderful and natural performer, and I certainly look forward to many years of seeing his work in the movies and on TV.
Excellent effort all round
But for some reason I stuck with it, and I ended up liking it a LOT. True, a lot of the jokes throughout the rest of the movie were still bad, but I also laughed out loud more than a few times. Moreover, the movie's simply a lot of fun, with smart politics--objectionable only to Neanderthals--and a cast full of recognizable faces. Though I had to go to IMDB to figure out that the Oriental actress, Emy Coligado, who is obviously too old for this high school kid role, plays Piama on "Malcolm in the Middle."
Be sure to check out the outtakes on the DVD. On many DVDs these would consist of a lot of lame, unfunny mugging for the camera, but many of the outtakes on here are actually pretty good. Julie Bowen is particularly funny, singing that cameltoe song, and explaining why she "hates" Angelina Jolie: "She has a big chest, big lips, skinny legs, and she's philanthropic. I'm a selfish, flat-chested, big-assed bitch."
I read a few reviews on here where people said this movie is "dangerous." Are serious? When I went to high school, a student was arrested for sitting in one of the "popular" kids seats. I kid you not. He was almost charged for resisting arrest because his mother came to the school and challenged the school's wisdom. These are the types of situations going on everywhere--high schools and colleges alike--and I agree with the movie's morals entirely. We need to teach students to learn. We need to teach students how to think for themselves instead of just accepting things because "that's the way they are." A powerful message hidden in a popcorny, teeny bopper camouflage. I rank this one up there with Freedom Writers as one of my favorite movies to show students.
That's all there is to it, 4 of the 6 bad reviews on amazon are ignorant individuals who hate Nicole Richie and focused so much on her, despite her minor part in the film.
Watch the entire movie for what it is, don't focus on a single 'actor or actress'.
Also the other 2 bad reviews are those that over thought what the movie meant at the time and seem a bit crazy. So overall there's only decent good reviews on this movie :) enjoy!

The movie is not engaging,
The acting is not realistic, You have actors doing a bad job of playing actors ... you just can't believe the actors.

I think the fact that Nicole Richie didn't have to audition for kids in america says it all. She has no discernible talent and she gets by in this film by playing the only role she... Read morePublished on May 31, 2010 by KAM

Except for Nicole Richie's delusion that she has comic (or any) talent, the movie's worst sin is that it is inept 95 percent of the time. The remaining 5 percent is kind of cute.Published on October 21, 2009 by Kody
I was very offended when I saw this movie played on a local TV station. I am relatively young (26), but even I see the danger these kinds of movies are to our society.
