Making movies is definitely a serious business, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun on the set as well. We get a small glimpse at some of the on-set shenanigans in a new gag reel from the Lionsgate comedy Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. This video features Andy Daly as Principal Dwight showing Adam Pally's Mr. Teller the various contraband students have in their lockers, although he opens the wrong locker in this sequence, forcing him to start over. We also get a glimpse at Lauren Graham, as she knocks over a house of cards, and Griffin Gluck goofing around with Efren Ramirez.

As far as comedy films go, Paul Blart: Mall Cop is already pretty dramatic. It’s about criminals taking over a mall and the one mustachioed, Segway-riding security guard who can stop them, but it’s still somehow even less funny than that makes it sound. Perhaps the problem, then, isn’t that Paul Blart wasn’t funny enough to be a good comedy, but that it shouldn’t have been a comedy in the first place. It already has the makings of a standard Die Hard plot, so maybe director Steve Carr should’ve just leaned into that and made a serious action flick that just happens to star Kevin James instead.
Thankfully, CineFix’s Trailer Mix video series is here to show us what that would’ve been like, and the results are surprisingly good. Well, more like comparatively good, as it’s not really much of a »

As Francois Truffaut sagely noted, adolescence leaves pleasant memories only for adults who cannot remember. So it’s entirely possible that even the folks who made “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” will be pleasantly surprised by the cross-generational appeal of their spirited comedy about a sixth-grader’s antiauthoritarian campaign of rule-breaking mischief. To be sure, every generation is entitled to its own revenge fantasy, and this particular wishdream — inspired by the series-spawning novel by James Patterson and Chris Tebbets — is aimed primarily at viewers who might not yet have a firm grasp on puberty. But “Middle School” also may resonate with older viewers who most certainly do remember adolescent angst.
Rafe Khatchadorian (Griffin Gluck), the protagonist of the piece, is a semi-introverted but fancifully imaginative youngster who, for reasons left teasingly unclear, already has been kicked out of two schools before his single mom (Lauren Graham) enrolls »

Rafe (Griffin Gluck) is heading into middle school, and he finds himself in the world of Principal Dwight (Andy Daly), who runs a tight ship, and has an overabundance of rules. Rafe and his friends put together a plan to break every rule Principal Dwight has, but he has to keep his plans, and rule-breaking, from his mom (Lauren Graham).
While this one looks like a lot of fun for younger audiences, its success probably rests on Daly’s shoulders, and he’s a great choice for the role. The “bad guy” in such a film can easily go too cartoony, and though Daly could probably aim for that if he wanted to, his work on things »

"Creativity has no place in this school." CBS Films has debuted a second full-length trailer for the movie Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, an adaptation of the bestselling book series of the same name. Young actor Griffin Gluck stars as Rafe Katchadorian, a boy with a "wild imagination" bored of middle school who decides to break every rule and see what happens, bringing his friends with him. The full cast includes Lauren Graham, Rob Riggle, Thomas Barbusca, Andy Daly, Adam Pally, and Efren Ramirez. This actually looks really fun, especially disregarding the rules and messing with expectations. I'm sure if I were younger I'd enjoy it even more, but still, it looks pretty good.
