Storyline

David Leary was bullied by Rosco when he was in elementary school. But he got even on the day his parents moved out of town. Now twenty years later, David, who is a successful writer, is invited back to his home town to teach. Everything is great until Rosco, who is still in town, recognizes him. Now suddenly someone is playing mean practical jokes on him. Isn't David a little too old to be running to the Principal saying "Rosco's picking on me." ?

Wonderful
11 August 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is nicely done, and Tom Arnold is this really nice and lovable character who (even though he's a bully) you like a lot. A fun movie to watch anytime! Rick Moranis also plays a great character and proves once again he's a great actor.
