Editorial Reviews

Andy Nichol, 12, like most kids his age, will do anything to avoid conflict in fear of suffering overwhelming ridicule and punishment from his peers. Unfortunately for Andy, that's all about to change. Andy is put to the test when his English teacher, Mr. Simon (Ed Harris), pairs him up with the school's biggest outcast, Stanley. However, what Andy will soon learn is that there truly was a method behind Mr. Simon's madness as to why he teamed these two up... Not only does Andy discover that being different is acceptable in the end, but most importantly, he starts to understand the value of tolerance and culpability.

Andrew Nichol narrates this story about his younger self (Chase Ellison) being a 12 year old student who was is pared with Stanley a.k.a. "Big G" (Alexander Walters) for a school project by his teacher Mr. Simon (Ed Harris) to do a short story on tolerance. Stanley is the school's biggest outcast due to his size including one incident where he was sprayed with a water gun to make it look like he wet his pants & always hung out at a section of the school called "Geek Corner" with the other outcast of the school. Despite Stanley always keep his self-respect, Andrew didn't understand why he let people pick on him while Stanley's best friend Norman (Daniel Yelsky) would always get mad at him for doing things he felt that would just get them picked on more. Along with having to do the assignment with Stanley, Andrew is also dealing with his father who is constantly on his case for not being able to do anything correct by his standards while develops a crush on Mary Clear (Mia Rose Frampton) who had her best friend tell him that she likes him as well. That didn't set well with Mary's last boyfriend in Ricky Brown (Jordan Reynolds) who's the school bully & keeps threatening Andrew to stay away from Mary. While all of this is going on, Mr. Simon is the most popular teacher in the school & even won the California Teacher Of The Year as he's very loved by his students but after an incident involving a student named Jason (Camille Bourgeois) that caused him to get suspended, he started spreading a rumor about Mr. Simon being a homosexual causing Jason's father (played by WWE superstar Randy Orton) to bring allegations against him with Mr. Simon refusing to comment stating that his teaching should stand on it's own.Read more ›

This movie was great fo teaching kids that bullying and making up stories is not acceptable in todays world. I used it to teach a group of scouts about what not to do and also what to do when facing a bully

This was just one of those wonderful stories and certainly a "should see" if you have teenagers in school. No big budget or special effects - just a great story with great acting!

This is a movie with a message, but does not get too carried away with getting the message across.
The message is stated in the synopsis on the DVD case; "tolerance takes courage".
To get this message across the storyline has some strange characters: Stanley who is the biggest kid in the school, yet gets bullied; Mr. Simon, who will not defend himself when a student he got expelled makes accusations which could ruin him; and Andy, the main character, who gets caught in the middle and must make some decisions which would be very hard for an eight grader.
The movie is seen mainly from Andy's point of view, which helps the viewer understand the difficulty he has in making his discussions.
This is a "coming-of-age" movie, but is this case the coming-of-age is not just Andy's dealing with his first love, but also maturing in other ways, such as understanding tolerance and courage.
Be sure and watch the credits at the end of the movie because while the credits are running it also has a "where are they now" feature which is fun.

Not really a romance or love story.
The story is more about learning to accept others and overcoming bullying and peer group pressure. Was not what I'd expected, 'Gay coming out', but it was a good story and uplifting.

Product arrived on time and in excellent condition. This is a feel-good movie with a great cast. Stanley's ear make-up is a bit overdone, but that's the nature of the script, not the fault of the production. The young actors are well chosen and play their parts very well. I'm sure Ed Harris was a good influence on them.

That's What I Am is a tricky movie to rate. My wife didn't like it much, but I did -- and for totally different reasons. Let's talk about different aspects that were good and bad.

The Good:

Story
-----
The story is quite good and, for many people, easily relatable. A boy who is on the verge of being one of the "cool" kids has a choice to make. He can do what is right and end up with the nerds (i.e. those who will succeed) or do what is wrong and be liked by the bad boys and, better yet, the bad girls.

As with many of us, his destiny is written by how he toys around with the sides of good and evil in middle school.

Homosexual Message
------------------
Tons of people will probably have lots to say about the homosexual message in the film. There's no overt gross stuff to show you in either homo- or heterosexual (I think there may be one kiss in the whole film and its heterosexual). But the film deals in part with homophobia as a tool to get across a message: Our public actions determine how we ought to be respected in a public setting. We can find fault with anyone, and it tends to be those with glaring faults who seem to get caught up in listing everyone else's.

If you are pro-homosexual, anti-homosexual or don't care, I think you'll find the message mostly unoffensive and even inspire conversation in your house (as it did ours).

Ed Harris
---------
He sticks out like a sore thumb. He's such a brilliantly good actor and he gets you caught up in every scene. The directors and writers use him brilliantly to move you with the plot. And he commands such authority that it's easy to see him as the sage teacher he portrays.
