First in Henry Aldrich series with Lydon
27 March 1999 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

In the first of this humorous series of Henry Aldrich, James Lydon did a good rendition of a screwball kid, who gets used in a scheme to run as president of the student body at good old Centerville High. As with any other young man, Henry falls for a girl who just happens to be the girlfriend of the major competition, Irwin Barrett. The fun begins as Henry enlists his best friend Basil (Dizzy) Stevens as his campaign manager. They work well together, although Dizzy gets distracted at times by pretty girls.

A good beginning for these two in a nine movie run.
