Trivia

Every scene in which "Henry" is in was filmed on location at Arcadia High School in Arcadia, California. The producers had to change the name of the school in the film to "Acadia High School" so they didn't have to pay as much money to the city of Arcadia. See more »

Goofs

When the students nominate people for class president, Jerry is shown wearing a red bowtie. However, he does not receive the bowtie until several scenes later, when he is disguised as an ice cream man. See more »

Another mediocre reworking of the Faust tale...
24 August 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

In this low budget film we have another retelling of the deal with the devil story. I was curious in that I wanted to see how Michael Goorjian did in a more major role than the supporting part that he always had in Party of Five. (He did OK) and I was curious to see how Shiri Appleby (of "Roswell" did in a movie (she did OK too).

Overall though, two OK performances don't make for a great movie. If you want a "junk-food" movie to pass an hour and a half, this movie may fit the bill. Just don't expect anything new or terribly original here. At least is wasn't painful to watch.
