Max Fischer is a precocious 15-year-old whose reason for living is his attendance at Rushmore, a private school where he's not doing well in any of his classes, but where he's the king of extracurricular activities - from being in the beekeeping society to writing and producing plays, there's very little after school he doesn't do. His life begins to change, however, when he finds out he's on academic probation, and when he stumbles into love with Miss Cross, a pretty teacher of the elementary school at Rushmore. Added to the mix is his friendship with Herman Blume, wealthy industrialist and father to boys who attend the school, and who also finds himself attracted to Miss Cross. Max's fate becomes inextricably tied to this odd love triangle, and how he sets about resolving it is the story in the film. Written by

Good. Except when the value of the "X" coordinate is equal to or less than the value of one. Yes Isaac?
What about *that* problem?
Oh, that? Don't worry about that.

Well, considering I've never seen anyone get it right, ...

Because "monotonous" is what this movie is. As others have said, if you decide to watch 'Rushmore' and find it's going nowhere, don't give it a chance. It goes nowhere from begining to end. You'll be more entertained watching a goldfish swim in a bowl. Why are people calling it "brilliant," "heartwarming," and "hilarious"? The film had none of those qualities, for it lacked plot and sympathetic characters. The main character was thoroughly repulsive, arrogant, and selfish, and barely deserves the privileges that occur to him in the film. Afterall, the movie was about nothing more than his various projects, none of which were fascinating or even the least bit entertaining.
People said this movie had a message? I don't think so! Don't use that "hidden message" or "satire" defense unless you have valid proof of that. A bad movie is a bad movie!!!! Gather? See "Gregory's Girl" instead. It was kind of like "Rushmore", but unlike "Rushmore", it was a good movie.
