A teenager wins a fully automated dream house in a competition, but soon the computer controlling it begins to take over and everything gets out of control, then Ben the teenager calms down the computer named Pat and everything goes back to normal.
Gunther Wheeler, fourteen, a city tough-guy from New York moves to a small town called Pleasant Valley. Gunther isn't making very many friends in his new town. Until he meets Allison Robbins a beautiful blond girl his age, the girl of his dreams. Gunther is anxious to score on Allison by taking her out on a date. When Chad, Luke, and Wylie, a couple of neighborhood bullies give Gunther a chance to see Screamin' Banchees, an awesome band, but the tickets for the concert are $150. Gunther doesn't have that kind of money. So the only way for him to get the money is to work as a paperboy with Charlie, Gus, Henry, and Fish which is known as the "nerd herd." Written by
In the scene where the boys are siphoning gas out of the bully's car, there is a shot of the three bullies coming out of the front door of the house. One of them slips on the steps, but the camera cuts to another shot just before we would have seen what was going to be a MAJOR landing on his rear. See more »
This movie has basically everything that you could ask for in a movie. It has the characters that were introduced in a way that other movies fail to accomplish at. The characters are fully relatable to the audience because they are just like normal people. What I liked about this movie is that it was entertaining. There are some jokes in this movie that were not that bad. The main jokes that are in this movie are jokes that get described and shown to the viewers, rather than just having a fakie one-liner. This movie is a type of adventure movie. It sort of reminds me of the movie "Air Bud", which I liked too. They don't really have much in common, but seem like they were built upon the same basic structure of how the audience sees the characters' perspective.
There was a big variety of people in this movie, making it easy to relate to, like I said. Gunther Wheeler just moved to a small town and thinks it will just be plain boring. He gets a job in a paper route which the movie is centered on as its plot. You learn a few silly facts in this movie, you see how paper gets from the big stack wrapped in twine to your doorstep, and you see what happens to a normal teenager as he goes through a summer thinking it will be totally boring, but then makes a decision in the end which you will find out when you watch the movie. My other favorite part is the adventurous parts that make the plot easy to follow by and fun to watch. I have no dissapointments in this film. I think that Kyle Howard did an excellent job as Gunther, which was not an easy role to master, and playing Crazy Man Cooper, Robert Englund, was also someone to give special attention to.
Basically this movie is everything that you could expect from a non-theatrical movie. It is entertaining to watch for all ages, because like I said, it has a big variety of characters. This movie was accomplished really well and had some hard scenes to shoot, but must have been fun to shoot. All in all, I give this movie a 9 out of 10, for being a well written, typical summertime movie.
