Storyline

Charlie, science wiz, hockey lover, and all around genius, is tired of being friendless. It's bad enough that he's in college before he's 14 helping a scientist who's in the midst of trying to defy gravity. So, in order to make his life exactly how he wants it, Charlie reinvents himself by taking on the image of a slacker/bad boy and enrolls in the local Jr. high. But juggling two lives is tough, even for a genius. Written by Max Vaughn

Very good movie
9 June 2000 | by (Kentucky, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a very good movie. Its about this 13 year old boy and he is a nerd and is real smart and is a college teacher. One day he meets this girl and it was love at first sight for him.This movie only comes on the Disney channel. If you have the Disney channel and this movie is on. I suggest you watch it because it is a good movie for the whole family.
