At least it has Charlie Talbert.
5 September 2001 | by (Tujunga, California, USA) – See all my reviews

"Social Misfits", as many of you are already aware, is a small-time independent flick. I found the film quite enjoyable and even poignant at times. Some of the writing, especially amongst the counselors and between the warden and the mother, was stale. The theme and premise of change of character through suffering slips away, as some of the violence that continues to occur throughout the movie suggests.

Still, the film has a slew of young actors with great potential. Tann is excellent as the leader of the group, as are Damon and De la Fuente as the Hispanic hoodlums. All the female roles were played wonderfully, and I'll give high esteem to the very young Huett, who played the girl who though she could fly.

What really saved the movie, for me anyway, is Charlie Talbert, in a very rare showing. Talbert is of "Angus" (1995) fame, and is rarely seen in movies. Even though his performance and his "moments" were short, he took great advantage of it. Throughout the movie, he is sweet, assertive, and charismatic. Through tone, physical features (he looks huggable), hand gestures, emotions, and body movements, he expresses his character (Kyle the klepto) perfectly! Talbert once again (alongside "Angus") demonstrates that he truly has a talent for acting. He would surely be appreciated if we see him in more key films.

All-in-all, "Social Misfits" is a great movie to rent. Take it home, and I bet you'll enjoy it, if only a bit.
